Jesus is changing me. How about you?

What shall we say?

One of my favorite villains is Christopher Walken. His portrayal of evil is one in which the evil man does violence yet is detached from it. He is able to inflict pain and remain compassionate. His evil is only a tool to gain his agenda. Why I appreciate this is because it is a picture of our enemy. He was a holy angel in the face of God. He allowed himself to become evil. But he retains the same kind of “honor” he saw in his Father. After all, remember, he is a created being. Do not be deceived into believing satan is an evil being because he is evil in all his appearance. We are told he can masquerade as an angel of light. He still has the ability to mimic what is good. That means he knows what is good. But it is in his agenda that we find the evil God has sworn to destroy.

Look at Jesus and His agenda. What do we find? We find a love that searches after wicked men; that He might change them into men of righteousness. His agenda is a transformation from evil to good. Set this against what we see the world doing (for the world serves the evil one). While Jesus calls us with a whisper from the Spirit and the Holy word of God, the Bible, the world calls from the vantagepoint of the senses. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. The world keeps cranking up the call to sin. The evil one knows we will not turn to God if he keeps enticing us with ever increasing entertainment. God remains the same, however. Jesus calls from heaven. And it is through listening to the words written in the Bible, and the Spirit which calls us heavenward.

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart”. (Heb. 12)

We are who persues us.

By His Grace.
