what we do with Jesus

Christians.  They are an interesting lot.

I think all Christians believe in Jesus, that he is the Son of God.
I think that some Christians worship him.
Some let it lie at believing, others believe and offer thanks and praise.

There is a part though that is often left out, and that is imitating Jesus.  I was reading Father Richard Rohr and he was talking about how it is easy to believe and easy to worship, but hard to imitate.

To imitate Jesus is to live a life of love.  To imitate Jesus is to join the path of self-denial.  No wonder so many Christians are satisfied with belief.

What is up with you and Jesus?  Belief?  Worship?  Or are you seeking to follow the ways of the Master?  There is probably no better way to show that we believe and no better form of worship than to pray that God will teach us the gracious, sweet, loving heart of Jesus.

It's a beautiful day in God's world, be sure to see the good.
