After a dear sister on the forum posted this image at the end of this post, it really HIT me.
Do I do EVERYTHING as to Jesus?
If Jesus came to my house for dinner or just a cup of tea, would I, even if I had had a lousy day and a headache and just wanted to put my feet up and moan…would I just slap something together just because I HAD to?
I would clean the house till it shone, take out the best crockery and cutlery and all this with the GREATEST love.
Do I do this in LOVE for everyone in my household?
Do I do this when I go to work in LOVE for all my clients?
Even pick up an oopsie from my Yorkie dog with LOVE ?
Made me think deeply
So…with Jesus in mind let us do everything as to Jesus. Be Holy as He is Holy…we cannot be Holy by ourselves. But the Holy Spirit indwells us and we are part of His body so we are Holy.
So let us make that cup of tea for our friend/husband/wife/child as to Jesus.
Such a wonderful reflection and excellent reminder. I fail greatly, though I DID do something very unprompted and hopefully uplifting for my spouse, yesterday. It has me being on the lookout to keep doing, as to the Lord.
Thank you for the encouragement, dear sister!
These are the lyrics to a record I used to have by Red Sovine that fit in nicely with this thread.
If Jesus came to your House.
If Jesus came to your house, To spend a day or two.
If he came without warning, I wonder what you’d do.
Yes if Jesus came to your house, To spend a day or two.
If he came unexpected, Just dropped in on you.
Ahh I know you’d give you nicest room, To such an honored guest.
And all the food you’d serve to him, Would be your the best.
And you would keep reassuring him, That you’re glad to have him there.
That serving him in your home, Is joy beyond compare.
But when you saw him coming, Would you meet him at the door,
With arms out stretched in welcome, To your heavenly visitor.
Or would you have to change you clothes, Before you’d let him in.
Or hide some magazines, And put the Bible where they had been.
Would you turn off the radio, And hope he hadn’t heard.
And wish you hadn’t uttered, That last loud hasty word.
Would you hide your worldly music, And put some hymn books out.
Could you just let Jesus walk right in, Or would you rush about.
And I wonder, If the savior spent a day or two with you.
Would you go right on doing, The things you always do.
Would you go right on saying, The things you always say.
Would life for you continue, As it does from day to day.
Would your family conversations, Keep up its normal pace.
And would you find it hard each meal to say a table grace.
Would you sing the songs you always sing,
And read the books you read.
And let him know the things on which you mind and spirit feed.
Would you take Jesus with you everywhere you planned to go.
Or maybe would you change your plans, For just a day or so.
Would you be glad for him meet your very closest friends.
Or hope that they’d stay away, Until his visit ends.
Would you be glad to have him stay forever on and on.
Or would you sigh with great relief, When he at last was gone.
It might be interesting to know the things that you would do,
If Jesus came in person, to spend some time with you.
If Jesus came to your house, I wonder what you’d do.
You are a shining light dearest Merrilee!!
Wow @DallasT …this is so awesome!!!
I love that spoken song. It had a great impact on me years ago. I love all Red Sovine’s songs. So many of them used to bring me to tears. Thanks for finding it.
