It was written in 1840, and I read it this week.  It was true then, and it’s true now, almost 180 years later.  It was an excerpt from a letter written to a friend by a young Scottish minister, Robert Murray M’Cheyne, and says, “It is not great talents God blesses so much as great likeness to Jesus.”  Take a second and think about it.  We often compare ourselves with others and say, “Well, if I had his talent/money/personality/opportunities/etc. I could do more.”  Wait a minute.  Doesn’t the Bible say, “they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise” (2 Corinthians 10:12)?  There is no doubt that we believers are all different and have varied strengths and weaknesses.  But there is one thing we definitely have in common: our Savior.  And there is a common exhortation we are all to follow, and this truth is what God is looking for in us.  I was contemplating this a couple of days ago in Romans 13:14.  “But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ….”  That is what God wants to see in us!  Jesus!  Living our lives with Jesus’ purpose to always do the Father’s will.  Evaluating all things from His eternal point of view.  Walking, as John tells us in His first epistle, “even as He walked.”  Committing fully to reflect Him and share His gospel everywhere we go.  Bearing, as Mr. M’Cheyne wrote, “great likeness to Jesus.”  We can all do that.  No, we must all do that.  Today’s world needs to see this in us more than anything else.  Will you be like Jesus today?
