I received the T shirt pictured here in the mail yesterday. I laughed, and couldn’t believe my knucklehead friend/ex coworker would do such a thing. Okay, now you are probably asking yourself, “Who’s Mike?” Mike was a manager where my friend and I worked. He was a different soul, went by the book, and talked a lot! I often wondered how he kept from going hoarse every day.
Over the years, my friend would say something about this Mike, and my standard reply was, “Who?” I would say most people didn’t care for Mike. I must admit I was one of them. My friend knew that. Mike had a way of doing his best to make sure you knew he was a manager, and that he was smarter than you. My friend and I were in the union.
There were a lot of people who didn’t like Jesus either. Yes, when he performed miracles he would draw quite a crowd and then teach them about his heavenly Father. He taught them about “love”. He taught them and was an example of a better way to live. The way of “love”. To let “love” rule over everything. All relationships, conversations, and decisions,
because “love” never fails. (1 Cor. 13:8)
To this day, a lot of people are drawn to having a relationship with God, via Jesus. But not all make that decision to accept Jesus into their life. I think mainly because they don’t want to change the way they are living. Although, if they were honest with themselves they would have to admit, the way they live doesn’t provide total peace like knowing Jesus does. A true follower of Jesus, a disciple, does everything he can to become like Jesus. To become, “love”.
So, I ask you, “Who wouldn’t want to be like Jesus?”
