Who Dat? The image in the mirror is clear whether it looks like Jesus or us.

Posted: July 11, 2015 in Uncategorized

Jesus is all about changing the reflection in the mirror-our reflection. What do you see when you look in the mirror? Physically, it probably looks like you. It may be distorted if you check it at 6 AM but, it’s still you. We will work like crazy on the image to get it just right and then we’re ready to meet the world. Or, are we? Mark 3:14 delineates a quality that is much more descriptive of what God is after in our lives as we follow Him. He picked the disciples to be “with Him.” It sounds as simple as playing a chord on a guitar or piano. But, take away this chord and the reflection or music will never look or sound right. The word that describes the most left out aspect of correctly reflecting what Jesus is after in us is “availability.” Paul describes another aspect of this word in 1 Corinthians 3:5- he describes the change in us when we spend time with God when he says that he and Apollos were “servants.”That begins to change the image in the mirror doesn’t it? If you and I want to show people what Jesus is like, we must do what few are willing to do. We will carve out time to be with God consistently and we will free our schedule to be available to a neighbor, someone at the gym or someone in the office. It requires saying “no” to many things that only serve to limit our freedom and saying ‘yes” to developing intimacy with Jesus and others as God intersects our lives with them. Next time you look in the mirror, ask a different question like “Who Dat?”
