Because the story of Jesus is so impressive- God among us! God speaking a language we can understand! God acting in ways that heal and help and save us!- there is a danger that we will be impressed, but only be impressed. As the spectacular dimensions of this slowly (or suddenly) dawn upon us, we could easily become enthusiastic spectators, and let it go at that- become admirers of Jesus, gererous with our oohs and ahs, and in our better moments inspired to imitate him.

Eugene Peterson, The Message

God, please help me imitate Him not only in my better moments but also in my weakest!

Love from above,
