Have you ever thought about What if, for one day, Jesus were to become you? What if for 24 hours, Jesus wakes up in your bed, walks in your shoes, lives in your house, assumes your schedule?
Your boss becomes his boss, your mother becomes
his mother, your pains becomes his pains? With one exception, nothing about your life changes.
Your health doesn’t change, Your circumstances don’t change, your schedule isn’t altered. Your problems aren’t solved. Only one change occurs.
What if, for one day and one night, Jesus lives your life with His Heart? Your heart gets the day off, and your life is led by the heart of Christ. His priorities govern your actions. His passions drive your decisions. His love directs your behavior.
Can you imagine? What would you be like? Do you think people would notice a change? Your family — would they see something new? Your co-workers — would they
think someone else had been hired? What about your friends? Would they detect more Joy? What about your enemies?
Would they receive more mercy from Christ’s heart than
from yours? What about YOU? How would you feel with God’s heart in you? Would your stress level go down? What about your temper? Would you sleep better? Would you still dread what your dreading? Better than that,
would you still do what your doing?
Think about your schedule, what you have planned, With Jesus taking over your heart, would anything change?
Can you see what your life might look like with Jesus leading your life?
That picture that you see, with Jesus leading your life is what God wants……. The Word says we are to “think and act like Christ Jesus.” Another passage says, “to be like God in true righteousness and holiness”.
