crazy, weird, UNIQUE!

He has more.

Recently, I noticed this kid.

He used to be tangled up in this world.  He probably didn’t care a whole lot about others or himself for that matter.  He definitely wasn’t sold out on Jesus that anyone knew.  He was an ok student.  He wasn’t a trouble-maker.  He was just him.  He was a likable kid, but not an enormous stand-out of some sort.

Recently, I noticed a difference.

He smiles a ton more.  He was a stand-out in a sport this year that he was involved in.  I see his joy in our halls.  His face is different.  I don’t mean it’s transformed into someone else physically, but it is brighter, it’s happier, it’s warmer.  God has truly blessed him.

People are scared of Jesus.  They think that accepting his way will interfere with the way they want their lives to be.  We want to be in control way too much.  But if we could only really see what He does for people.  Like this kid I noticed recently.  I know Jesus is the reason for his transformation.   Jesus can change our appearance.  He can change our attitude toward people, toward our future and life in general.  He makes us prettier–spiritually AND physically.  He makes us love more.  It’s like He creates so much love in us that we have to share it with others.  Some of us believe we already have enough.  We do enough.  We are happy enough.  We have enough.   But there is more.  With Jesus, we can experience more of all that is good.
