1 John 2:1-11

The God-gifted, 20-something-year-old worship leader, Kari Jobe, inspired me saying, “My generation is attracted to what’s real.” It inspires me because I am a 50-something-year-old and I am also “attracted to what’s real.”

Jesus was the most real person to ever inhale and exhale on planet earth. People were attracted to Him then, and if He lives in us, people are still attracted to Him. Was real ever more real than when Jesus surrendered to His Father’s will and became our willing substitute on the cross? No. Because of His shed blood we have pardon for our acts of sinning and purity for attitudes of sin. It’s a real double-blessing.

There are many reasons we should want to be like Jesus, but one right reason is the way He proved His real love by laying down His life so He could lift up ours. We love Him so much because He first loved us too much. To live in Him is to allow the love of God to flow through us.

Please love Jesus passionately!
