I’m A Wannabe

I’m a wannabe basketball player. Having watched the NCAA men’s basketball championship last night, I’m all the more convinced that I’m a mere wannabe when it comes to playing basketball.

I also wannabe other things, but nothing more than a genuine follower of Jesus, full stop. And for this goal, I have endless hope for the sole reason that Jesus has given me the Holy Spirit, as my Helper, in this supreme goal. Indeed, the closer I draw to the Holy Spirit:

  • the more I make choices that reflect Jesus,
  • my conversations are filled with truth & love,
  • my perspective changes to a divine outlook rather than filtered by my flesh.

Would you join me in this adventure to be a Jesus wannabe?
Gal 4:19, ” . . . until Christ be formed in you.”

metamorphosis

When I was in college, I read a German book about metamorphosis – some guy turning into a giant insect.  It was a really creepy book & there’s a good possibility that I’ve had a few nightmares from this book.  It seems to me that without God’s involvement, human attempts to transform & change can result in nightmares and yucky results.

In contrast, whatever I ask God to be involved with in my life, there’s always an improvement.  For some food for thought, please consider Titus 3:5-6 🙂
