Jesus-Like (4) -- Except Not, Though.

'...Take the yoke I give you. Put it on your shoulders and learn from Me...' Matthew 11:29 CEV

Have the last three days got you worried? Does the challenge to ‘live like Jesus’ sound too much? Stop, and maybe even write this down somewhere. The first call of Christianity is not ‘Live Like Jesus’. The first call is: ‘Come Home, All Is Forgiven.’ The call to live like Jesus is for after that. It’s for after you’ve come home, after you’ve been picked up and held safe by the Father of the universe. So if you’re worried that you’re not thinking, or acting, like Jesus, don’t panic your way out of His arms. From inside those arms you can watch His heart and thoughts close up. It’s only once you’re home that you can see how the Son deals with problems. Sure, we really want you to live like Jesus. (Fact is, we really want us all to live like Jesus...) Imagine what the world would be like if we all did. But if we allow ourselves to slip into thinking, ‘If I don’t live like Jesus... am I really a Christian?...’ we’ve allowed ourselves to swallow the secret lie that it depended on us being holy enough, or doing enough ‘things’ as a Jesus–copy. That’s not what the Cross was for. Living like Jesus is something that God grows (and not overnight) in the lives of those who have been called to Him whilst they were still dirty, tired, and broken. The only thing that every single one of us needs to ‘do’ is receive the love of His Father. The rest comes from there.
