The term selfie is probably the most defining word of our century.  A culture where getting the perfect picture is made a priority, while people around us go without anyone loving them and caring for them enough to share Jesus. 

Imagine the anger that filled the heart of Jesus as He walked through the Synagogue toppling tables while encountering leaders who were only concerned with "their" ideas of what was important, laying aside God's desires for them to be reaching out to people with help.....

How far have we come?  Scary to think about as the Bible says.....
2 Timothy 3:1
  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

2 Timothy 3:2
  For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy..........

  • It is God's desire that all should come to repentance...(asking Him for forgiveness for unbelief in Him, Jesus)
  • It is God's desire that we love Him
  • It is God's desire that we love people
  • It is God's desire that we help people
It is also God's desire for us to live victoriously.......You are a child of the Most High God, and HE thinks you are beautiful!    Let Him fill you with His joy and fulfillment...you will find ultimate contentment in Him.

Jesus Follower




Follow Jesus

Do you ever let what people think sway your thoughts, moods, and actions?  If they are followers of Jesus this is a good thing!

Most of the time the things that sway our thinking most, aren't the positive, scripture adhering words of a friend, but rather that derogatory slam or the threat of one.  

In fear of what men will say or think about us and that which is precious to us....... we hunker down, and put our hard shell out ready to receive blows from our critics. 
(and are ready to fire back those darts as soon as or even before they begin)

Ps. 56:4
  In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.
Psalms 118:6
  The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?

Hebrews 13:6
  So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.


We forget how important it is to be like Jesus and to care what He thinks of our attitudes
As a Jesus follower, we can afford to be tender.....and risk being kind in the face of our attacker.  Learning to put the Lord first over absolutely everything else,  allows us to be bold and considerate to any who would engage us.......It is freedom.....it is supernatural intervention!


NO ONE is ever perfect at this....but every time we choose to be a Jesus follower we become a little stronger.  Don't beat yourself up when you fail..... don't give up......  Try again.  The world is depending on us to show them Jesus.
