Unique, matchless, incomparable, one and only or incapable of being imitated, very much an attribute or characteristic of Jesus. Yet far too often we’re taught to “act like Jesus”. Certainly the world needs more of Him but does it need more people pretending to be like Him? What’s truly called for is more of the actual Jesus living in and working through us. That’s what He promises to do if we’ll let Him. All that’s required is saying yes, not once but always.

Life’s a mess and I hate that, I’d rather have everything all tidy and in its place, have things happen when I think they should and never feel pain. But that’s not the world we live in and pretending it is only makes things worse. I’m so very thankful God’s at work cleaning up my mess and from His view it’s a beautiful thing.
