Just Like Jesus




Acts 4:13 (AMP) Now when they saw the boldness and unfettered eloquence of Peter and John and perceived that they were unlearned and untrained in the schools [common men with no educational advantages], they marveled; and they recognized that they had been with Jesus.


You can always tell when someone has been spending time with someone else.  They begin to embody similar traits, gestures, attitudes and expressions; even the tone of their voice can change.


My husband began working closely with his brother. Shortly after, I noticed he began speaking and carrying himself  similarly, even his facial gestures took on that of his brothers .  Likewise, my mother always begins to sound like her dear friend who tends to over exaggerate her words. And so even thousands of miles away I can tell who she’s been spending time with. I am equally as guilty, its in our nature.  When I was twelve, I’d return home from spending  hours at my girlfriend’s  house, I would speak a mile a minute and dance all over the house, which I’m pretty sure aided in my parents desperate need of date night!

The greatest compliment I have ever received was during one of the most trying times in my life. My best friend Cheri was dying of cancer.  As I was showing compassion to her fiances mother, acknowledging how hard it must be for her to have to stand by and watch her son go through such a thing, she acknowledged my compassion and patience to the divided family.  It’s crazy, she said, with tears filling her eyes, looking at me astounded, it’s like I see Him in you, I see Jesus in you!  Never before had I been so honored.  Of course, Jesus was there with us, but she could see Him in me because I had been spending most of my time with Him.


It is important who we choose to spend our valuable time with.  And it is especially important to spend time with Jesus, so you can see your life’s circumstances through His eyes and people can see Him through yours.
