What if Jesus Lived in Your House?
Imagine that Jesus lived at your house. What would he do?
Would he wash up?
If you have a lawn, would he mow the lawn?
Of course he would.
If you're a follower of Jesus, would you do those things with him?
Yes you would. You'd follow him around doing everything you could with him.
Following Jesus is easy when you think about it. We only have to think, "What would Jesus be doing if he was here in bodily form?" Then once you have the answer, join him in spirit by doing what you know he would do. (If you don't know anything about Jesus, you can find out all about him in the New Testament.)
The following poem was written by a Scott in the 1800's. It's about true greatness. The father in the poem also talks about hearing God's voice. It's simple, yet profound.
A note about the poem
Ambition to be something (e.g. a doctor) in order to help others is a good thing. The ambition he's talking about in the poem is the ambition to be better than others.
