Get Real Man! Get Real Woman! Get Real, Child of God!
Do you put on a mask as you wake up in the morning? The Lord wants us to show forth His love to all around so that the world may know that we are His disciples.
In John 15:7-12 Jesus said “If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. Herein is my Father glorified that ye bear much fruits; so shall ye be my disciples. As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends if ye do whatsoever I command you. .”
Do you want the joy to overflowing, that Jesus promised ?
Do you want to please the Lord with the fruits that He is looking for in your life?
Obey Him and follow His example.
Reach out to that unlovely person today.
Forgive that wrong-doer, just as you are also a wrong-doer.
Have you received the love of Jesus? Show forth that love to the lovely and the unlovely, including the wrong-doer.
Let us show forth the beauty of Jesus in our lives through our love for our fellow men and women, and especially our families.
Be blessed today, as you purpose to follow Him and show the beauty of Jesus to the world.
There is an old chorus which says:
Let the beauty of Jesus be seen in me
All His wonderful passion and purity
Oh, Thou Spirit divine, all my nature refine
Till the beauty of Jesus be seen in m.
Dear Child of God,
Unmask I urge you, and let the beauty of Jesus be seen in you.
Then the fullness of His love will flow to others
As the fullness of His joy flows to you!
Let it be so today for me, dear Jesus. Amen.
