I was reminded of this commercial, this morning. It was for a series of toys that I used to buy, one package at a time, every other paycheck, until I had acquired the first 13 sets.
They were called MicroMachines.
“If it doesn’t say Micro Machines, it’s not the Real Thing.” was the slogan for them.
We need to be “the Real Thing.”
The enemy has shoved his version, more like his perversion, of Christianity down the world’s throat, while real believers muddle through his muck to show people, no matter their current state, Jesus’ love.
“Later, as Jesus was having dinner at Levi’s house, many tax collectors and “sinners” were eating there with Jesus and his followers.
Many people like this followed Jesus.
When the teachers of the law who were Pharisees saw Jesus eating with the tax collectors and “sinners,” they asked his followers, “Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?”
Jesus heard this and said to them, “It is not the healthy people who need a doctor, but the sick. I did not come to invite good people but to invite sinners.” – Mark 2:15-17
If anyone is “healthy” or “good” in their own eyes, Jesus didn’t come for them.
It is when a person determines they are “sick” that they “need” a physician, right?
I wonder… …will such a one seek me out for my recommendation, then, if while they think they are “healthy” and “good”, I love them?
Be the “Real Thing.”
