The Best Compliment Ever

29 03 2010

We were gathered in the room waiting for a time of study and praise to begin. The woman sat down next to me. It was clear that she had something she wanted to share. She leaned in close, partly to be heard and partly for privacy. “I think I have discovered something about your books. There is a common theme running through them.” She paused. “You always talk about Jesus, and being transformed to be like Him.” She looked at me expectantly. I smiled. She hit the nail on the head. I always talk about Jesus.

My conversation with this woman has stayed on my mind. I appreciate her encouragement, and letting me get a glimpse of how God is working in her heart. More importantly, her words have humbled me and caused me to look deep within. Does Jesus define every part of who I am? Can someone see Him as the common thread that runs through every part of my life? Is His transformation evident as I walk though my days?

I can’t think of a better compliment than for someone to notice that Jesus is the theme of our lives. This is what The Jesus Resolution is all about – living lives so defined by Him that the world sees Jesus living fully in us, no matter who we are, what we are doing, or where we are walking.

My Jesus Resolution today is to surrender again to being more like Him. I want Him to penetrate every piece of my heart. I want others to see His reflection in the mirror of my life. I want to look like Jesus every day.
