People need to see Jesus, before his return.
It’s the Jesus in us that draws people who don’t know him to you.
Colossians 1:27 NIV
To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
Once they see the Jesus in you, they will say; I see Him now.
What’s keeping people from seeing the Jesus in you and through you?
But, once He is revealed unto you it will be like the door opening that once was close or like a light turned on in a dark place seeing and knowing what this world has been keeping from you.
Matthew 5:16 NIV
In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
You must be transformed into what you must become.
And what’s wrong with being like Christ? Nothing
1 Corinthians 11:1 ESV
Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ.
Are you thinking about how can I be like Christ?
Do you think the mark is too high?
The key words are to be like;
We are not Him as he was when he walked the earth
But, be like you being Him as He is today.
His being here was only the beginning of his ministry.
He only set the foundation and many were to carry out the building of the Church.
His ministry continues on earth as he is in Heaven.
As He was in the disciples and as He was in Paul
As he was in the many after Paul and like ones today.
Have you ever thought about how the people will be affected by you showing them the way to Christ?
How about how you will be affected by being Christ to someone?
In your discovery of being Christ you will find out what part of the body you are to become.
Are you the hands, feet, arms, heart, or His mouth.
Ephesians 2:10 NIV
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
The way to start
Be open to the way God is directing you.
Either, by inspiration
By others God has appointed those to send to you to teach you to be like him.
And by no one better to teach you about Christ than Christ himself?
So be open to receive instruction.
Turn off self
Turn on Christ
Be like Him is to become like him.
To be is to say you can.
Nothing is stopping you but you.
If an excuse is stopping you
Get rid of every excuse that stands in your way.
Whether, it being spiritual or physical.
People are lining up waiting for you to show them Jesus in you.
So pick up your cross.
You will realize it’s not heavy at all.
This burden the cross is very easy and light.
Isaiah 43:7 KJB
Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.
So what are you waiting on?
He is waiting on you.
Be his reflection.
