MORNINGTIME 2672
 
Put on therefore, AS THE ELECT OF GOD, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. And above all these things PUT ON CHARITY (Love), which is the bond of perfectness. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, DO ALL IN THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS, giving thanks to God and the Father by him. Colossians 3:12-17. There's a lot to chew on here, so let's try this, and this is only meant as an illustration, NOT AS A LEGALISTIC COMMAND. Here goes. I'm going to go see this movie as a Christian representing Jesus Christ to a lost and dying world. As I tell you this joke/story I hope you'll see Christ in me. Yes Boss, this IS how Jesus would work if He were here in my place. Yes Officer, this IS how Christ would be driving this car, He too would be getting this ticket. To all my constituency who voted me into this office, yes, my private life behind the scenes is just as Christlike as my public life you see before you today. Yes Mr. Investor, this IS how Jesus would get a return on the money you've invested into this project. Yes, all you dead people of the world, I AM running this church exactly as Christ describes in the Bible. Yes Mom/Dad, I am Following Christ according to His Word as you see me now, AND when you have your back turned towards me in my private times alone, AND with my friends. OK, I don't know about you, but all this does give me some food for thought here. Some self-examination and honesty can work wonders in a life, especially if Christ is holding the magnifying glass. Look, and, Be Blessed.
