Reflecting a Real JESUS
Every Sunday, we stand as a congregation, in agreement, and declare how much JESUS loves us, how HE has a purpose and how HE has a plan for each of our lives! The question is, do you the Believer really believe that JESUS loves you and that HE has such a purpose for you and that HE has your best interest?! It is not just words or a declaration, it is the truth - and you as a Believer really need to grab ahold of the fact that JESUS has such a plan for you!
Why? Well because the ones who do not know this truth, the unbeliever or even other Believers at times need to see JESUS reflected in your life! During times when things are uncertain, in our personal lives, or the uncertain times that our nation is in today, it is important to reflect a real JESUS! People just need to see JESUS! The following is a excerpt of a devotion that should really hit home for every Believer... who desires to fulfill HIS purpose in this world, a world with real problems and a world that has the opportunity to experience a real JESUS in you!
"The refiner receives the precious metals fresh from the mines, and finding them mixed with many worthless substances, before they can be of much use to anybody they must be purified, so he puts them in a fining-pot and subjects them to an intense heat. When the whole mass is melted, a separation takes place between the precious and the vile, and the precious becomes more precious because it is pure; and just as soon as the refiner can see his image in the seething gold, its purification is complete. That Refiner is our Kinsman Redeemer." - A. Dickson
The Bible says, in Romans, chapter five, starting in verse three..."but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us."
So let's reflect JESUS well, by bringing a real JESUS, to a lost and dying world!
To make JESUS famous always,
