Did you know you are an artist?
Did you know you are an artist? You are painting a picture of Jesus every day! In fact, some of you are painting the only picture people have of Him. If you profess to be a Christian, then your life should reflect Jesus. There should be no need to tell people you are a Christian, your life should be so contrary to the world that it is obvious you are set apart. If we could take the teachings of Jesus and apply them to our lives, if we could stop making excuses (“That is not really what he meant”, “God doesn’t want me to be a doormat” or “Well, I just don’t believe that”) and live our lives according to the words Jesus spoke – what a difference we could make! A few of the words spoken by Jesus for instance “Lend without expecting it to be returned”, “Bless those who curse you”, Pray for those who mistreat you”, and “Love one another by this the world will know you belong to Me” are words we choose to ignore or try to explain away. Christ said “Follow me” and that looks like something! What type of picture are we painting?
