Would you stay the same?
I'm not sure where it came from, but I turned and asked her "would you have said that if Jesus were standing in this kitchen?" She gave me a deer in the headlights look for a second and then said "no, I guess not"..
I have to admit that my behavior would be so dramatically different if Jesus were standing right next to me.. Not just in my attitude or how I related to people, but in the privacy of my own home too.. I don't think I would watch some of the television shows that I do if Jesus were sitting on the couch with me..
I know for a fact that I would think before I said or did anything, I would ask His opinion before I did anything, and I can promise you that I would never ever tell Him that I didn't have time to talk to Him or listen to Him.. I know would never ever say "You know Jesus, I really should read the Bible but I haven't looked at Pinterest today."
But you see, Jesus IS standing right next to me.. He does hear me when I speak, He watches what I do, and He knows what I am thinking.. We can make excuses for our behavior and how we treat others all the time, but I wonder if we would use those same excuses if we were actually face to face with Jesus?
So what about you? How would your life be different if you were face to face with Jesus, every moment of every day?
I think we can do better.. Don't you?
