Are you related to Jesus? Are you related to Jesus?
Are you related to Jesus?

Check your genes

By Kelly Mouisset

 

Are you a mother or brother to Jesus? Are you maybe and aunt or an uncle? What about a distant relative? Do you have any relation at all? Can you even see a family trait somewhere? I think I am the whole family tree and the place in the ground where it stands—and that can be in just one day! There are times that I feel so close to Jesus, I could be his mother and other times I feel that I am not even worthy of being the ground under the foot of that tree.  The saddest part is when I know how I should act, but I act like I feel like I want to instead. I choose….and I choose poorly at times.

This morning when I woke up and began my day in prayer, I asked God to use me in a mighty way. I didn’t ask Him to slowly make me better for the future, I asked for today, the only day I am promised. I want to be the person that builds up those around me with an encouraging word. I want to be the person that is fair at all times, and is more concerned about God’s legacy than my own. I want to be the one who helps those around me before they ask because I am aware of what goes on in their lives. I want to be that person who told you something that changed your life for the better. I want to be the person God has called me to be.

   I don’t want to look like a distant relative of Jesus with a few features here and there. I want His love to radiate from me. I want others to see Jesus’ love before they ever see me. I want others to be drawn not to me, but to the One who made me.

 

You are fearfully and wonderfully made. (Psalm 139:14)
