"We live in a time when Christians need to be told that we are supposed to live like Christ. " -Francis Chan 

Isn't it sad that we have to be reminded of this...more than once? As much as we hate to admit it, it's true. And ladies, it's time to stop looking past this. 

Have you read enough of the life of Jesus to actually know what his life looks like? Look at the Gospels and see what He did. And don't just stop there, try it out! The life that Jesus lived is the example that He set in order for us to have something to strive for.

When we do life with Jesus, our reflection to the world of who He is and who we {all} are because of what He has done becomes much clearer.

Our instilled purpose is to BE the example that Jesus set to a world that hasn't yet tasted His glory and goodness. It's an honor that our Maker created us in such a way that gave us a role in His redemptive mission in the world, but it's also an honor we fall short of. It's time to wake up and see the Kingdom for what it is and the role we are to play in it. 

We must live with a Heaven mindset, even in the midst of our shortcomings. We must continue to stand tall when we fall short. We must know that we are imperfect human beings, loved by a completely perfect and flawless God who gives us a role in His story despite our dirt. We must accept that we have purpose and use it for the Lord's benefit instead of our own. We must, we must, we must. 

Will you?
