I hope your Easter Weekend was wonderful. We had a great Good Friday Service and Easter Sunday Service. Add in all the friends and food and it was a weekend to remember.
I came across this video the other day take a look and then I will tell you why I wish Christians were more like these quadruplets.
If you stay with the video to the end you will see this was actually an April Fools joke and that the Quads were created by a video editor but this video got me thinking.
Twins, triplets and quadruplets obviously get attention where ever they go because they look-alike. The goal of a Jesus Follower is to look like Jesus but often the Church in general has missed the boat on this one. I have talked about this in other posts, Christian Craziness 1 and The Day The Church Turns Beige. Therefore, because we do not represent Jesus well we bring negative attention to the Kingdom.
Can you imagine if those who say they follow Jesus actually acted like He did?
Imagine if we served like He expected us to.
Imagine if we prayed for those who persecuted us (Matthew 5:44, Romans 12:14) instead of looking for revenge.
Imagine if it could be said of all of us what was said of the disciples by the religious leaders of their day, “Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated, common men, they were astonished. And they recognized that they had been with Jesus.” (Acts 4:13)
Just imagine if we got the same attention quadruplets did because we actually looked like the one we follow?
