Life is not about you. Nor is the Christian life primarily about rules, doctrines, deeds and rites. It’s about a love relationship with Jesus. We should begin this love relationship with Jesus the day we are saved. After that it grows. Once in love with Jesus we should also desire to believe truth and do right.
Life is not about us but Jesus. Are we believers bringing Him glory? Has He got more glory in this city because of us? Whatever chore or task I do, am I doing it for Him, to Him, in Him? Any job God gives us to do is important. Thus no job is small. Whether sweeping the heavens with a telescope or sweeping floors, designing buildings or washing clothes, am I doing it for Him?
Parents and grand parents love to tell you about their kids. They pull out the photographs of them. They speak of their school or sports accomplishments. Is Jesus on our lips like our other loved ones are? O are we bashful in speaking of Him? I would not want to believe some thing I was not excited about! Are we letting it out? Turning it loose? Lost people desperately need to meet people who are genuinely excited about their Lord! Bring it on.
Surely Creator God gave us our exuberant feelings for more than Saturday’s ball game. Are they not above all to worship Him? Stretched between earth and sky, paying for our sins on the cross, Jesus was not ashamed to take a public stand for us. God forbid that we be ashamed of Him.
“O give thanks unto the Lord; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people. Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works. Glory ye in his name: let the heart heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord.” (Psa 105.1-3).
