“God is not a belief to which you give your assent. God becomes a reality whom you know intimately, meet everyday, one whose strength becomes your strength, whose love, your love. Live this life of the presence of God long enough and when someone asks you, “Do you believe there is a God?” you may find yourself answering, “No, I do not believe there is a God. I know there is a God.”~Ernest Boyer, Jr.

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart with all your soul and with all your might.~Deuteronomy 6:5

Jesus in a tortilla

For those of you who don't know we've started having a bible study at our house on Tuesday nights. We have a GREAT group of people, we are all very different and that adds a great bit of fun to our bible study. In fact this week it was said "I always come here and hear about things going on that I've never heard before, it's like news of the weird"

That statement came about because somehow we got to talking about "Jesus" sightings and how people have seen "Jesus" in all sorts of crazy things the most recent a tortilla.

People see "Jesus" in all kinds of crazy things and all kinds of crazy places except for the place they should see Him. Do people see Christ in you?
As Christians, followers of Jesus the Christ, people should see Jesus in us. Maybe if we all lived more like Him people wouldn't look to a tortilla to see Jesus.
For a conversation that started off really silly it tied in beautifully to the text we were discussing
"To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Colossians 1:27
If you are a Christian then Christ lives in you and people should see Jesus in you!
