Be Your Best Self!

Follow Jesus!

“And I have seen and bore witness that is the Son of God!”

John the Baptist was truly a prophet! He knew himself and would be faithful, even unto death! He lived his true self! When he said that Jesus is the Son of God, he meant it with his life!

We begin again the new year, we will have challenges to deal with, how will we respond to these challenges? Will we respond like John the Baptist and possibly lose our heads , literally or figuratively, because we choose to be our best selves? Will we love those who hurt us?

Tomorrow, we in the United Stated, have a holiday honoring the memory and legacy of The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He is a modern day example of someone who lived his best self and was murdered because of it.

How should we celebrate the life and legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr?

Follow Jesus! That means love everyone, including those who hurt you! Be love!


Humility Matters!

Let Humility Reign!

“…(F)or everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
Luke 18:14

Jesus tells us clearly what He wants from us. Jesus tells us to be more like Himself!

We can accomplish many things in the days of our lives, and these things can create in ourselves a false pride. A false pride is that we did these accomplishments by ourselves and for ourselves. This is a lie!

Everything we accomplished comes out of what God had given us!

All the World is a gift!

All we are belongs to the Creator!

Let us meditate on Divine Humility. God enters the world born in a cave/ stable, so that we could be saved and find true peace.

True peace is not found in things in this world, but rather found in total surrender to the Creator!

Let everything we have and everything we do come out of our total surrender to the Creator. May we be reflections of the Divine Humility!


Serve the Lord!

Receive the Best!

Do whatever He tells you to do.
John 2:5

Jesus’ Mother had her Son help a couple make their wedding day special. Jesus in doing this sign shows His love for people. However, those involved in this miracle had to follow what Jesus told them to do.

Jesus uses us, we are the servant at the wedding we call life!

The waiters in the Wedding of Cana, did not understand why Jesus told them to pure water. Why? How does that make sense?

Following Jesus does not have to make sense, but if we do, our situations in life will be transformed.

But you have kept the good wine until now.
John 2:10

Water was turned into the choicest wine, a way was made out on no way, because Jesus got involved in the situation.

Let Jesus have all of our situations and do what He tells us to do!

Let us live lives of Jesus’ love!
