You may be surprised to hear me say this… but I don’t have an original bone in my body. Yes, it’s true, I may have a “way with words,” that makes something look and sound “original,” but NO… NO… not me. I’m a copy-cat. I’ve always been a pretty decent artist… but to do something original…No, again. Can’t do it. I can COPY someone else’s drawing, and add to it…some of my own skill…but it’s still not originally mine.
So it is with everything I do… or say. Somewhere…sometime, and someone… has said it all before me. Nothing, it seems, is original. Ok…maybe the I-phone.
So, with all of that said…who do I want to COPY? Humans? Far and few between. No… I want to be more…like.… Jesus Christ. If I’m to be a “copy-cat.” Why not copy the very best…and who can get better than… Jesus?
We’ve already got a head start…when God created us in His Image. Why not follow suit? Why not copy God? When I CONFESS my sins… it gives me an “overwhelming” sense of relief… of comfort, of peace, of being CLEAN… of happiness, and rest. Why not seek that feeling for all of time. I can copy Jesus…. And I can, then, be more acceptable to the God of Joy, peace, and eternal Happiness.
John 13:34 – “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.
1 Corinthians 11:1 – Be imitators of me, just as I also am of Christ.
One of…if not the only… greatest compliments one can give, or receive… is for someone to say: I want to be like you.
