Are you really living for Jesus? I’ve been grappling with that question lately. As the days, months, and years tick off, each going faster than the one before, I have to be honest with myself. Is my life reflecting that of Jesus? Do people look at me and want what I have? Does my life look different from all those who live around me?
If we say Jesus is our Lord, then we will have almost nothing in common with our friends and neighbors who don’t know Christ. Jesus transforms lives. If ours is not being transformed, then we have to revisit the question of “Is He our Lord?” Or is that only something we wish was true but have no practical proof it is?
