I wish I could do this perfectly.
But, I can't. I mean...I know I am capable of it...we all are through Him. But on my own... self gets in the way. There are still days when my desires conflict with His desires. There are days when I would rather not hear about the heartache someone is facing. Days when I want to bury my head in the pillow and pretend that bad things don't happen to children or to women. Days when I don't want to be Christ with skin on for someone else. But, the reality is that bad things happen. There is darkness that needs to be overcome with light. And people need the Lord. So that means that people like me and you need to represent Him as best we can.
As a believer I need to allow His life, His light, and His love to flow through me. We all do. If all of us together made sure that Christ was living through us and in us, through our words, our actions and our desires...this world would be a better place for us all.
This week as we prepare for Good Friday and for Resurrection Day may we be aware of what it truly means to be crucified with Him.
Let us meditate together on these words:
I have been crucified with Christ
and I no longer live,
but Christ lives in me.
The life I live in the body,
I live by faith in the Son of God,
who loved me and gave Himself for me.
and may we choose to live in such a way that when people look at us...they see Him.
