Take these hands

Take these hands
Teach them what to carry

Take these hands
Don’t make a fist
Take this mouth
So quick to criticise
Take this mouth
Give it a kiss
– U2 “Yaweh”

Becoming like Jesus.
It is about surrender but not about legalism.
It is about repentance but not good works.
It is about faith but not easy believing.

Becoming like Jesus requires a mix of surrender, repentance and faith. Some surrender but don’t give into His lordship. Instead, they subsititute ritual for Lordship. Some repent but never wash themselves with the new attitude, the new mind of Jesus. Some cover themselves with faith but never show any change in their actions and live faith without deed.

The mix of the three is a recipe. When all parts are added equally, mixed well and then baked by the temperatures of life, they yield a follower of Jesus; a man or woman who is becoming more and more like Jesus in action and attitude.

I want to be more like Jesus.
