Who do you look like?

I saw a cute commercial on television tonight. A little boy and his family come into a car dealership and the boy looks at the salesman and says, "Aren't you Derek Jeter?" The man says, "I get that all the time."

The announcer then goes on to talk about the new Toyotas and as the camera comes back to the family the little boy says, "You sure look like a shortstop!"

Now we know it was a commercial and that New York Yankee Shortstop was playing the part but it got me thinking. Wouldn't it be nice if when people looked at us they asked, "Aren't you Jesus?" That would would indicate that we looked like the Lord, that people saw us as being in the image of Christ.

The truth is that this is what it means to be a Christian. It is a nice feeling when it happens. Let's just hope it happens more and more.
