Irresistible Christianity

Our age seeks authenticity but is so easily fooled by its own senses. Perhaps a poignant illustration is a photograph of a battered and bloody Jim Caviezel, dressed like Jesus, sitting with a crew member and smoking a cigarette on the set of The Passion of the Christ. Every visual representation of Jesus is inevitably false. The only wise God went to great lengths not to leave us with any physical description of the physical appearance of His Son lest we fall into the sin of image making. We create an image of Jesus that says more about the Jesus we want than the Jesus whom God sent. A movie or a play is not intended by God to represent Jesus to a lost and dying world. YOU ARE. True Christians demonstrate true Christian faith! "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another." (John 13:34) Irresistible Christianity is marked by holy love! Putting on the armor of light or putting on Christ are not instructions to become a Christian all over again. Paul is calling us to be what we are in Christ. When you wallow in sin, you play the hypocrite. "Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil; cling to what is good." (Rom. 12:9) You are children of the light, children of the day. As John Piper says, "Dress like it, live like it, fight like it!" Amen!
