When life starts to squeeze you, what comes out? Are you dripping Jesus on all around you?
When lemons get squeezed, sour lemon juice comes out. In the same way, if our hearts aren’t right with the Lord, our reaction to the tough trials of life only serves to release the bitterness of our hearts.
But what happens when a Christian, who is accepting God’s grace, gets squeezed? They drip Jesus.
You’ve seen people like that. In fact, they’re all around us.
Like your friend with cancer who encourages your heart every time you visit her in the hospital.
Or the family with 10 children and a dad unemployed that gives everything they have left over to the homeless.
How about a loved one who takes Christ’s command to “count it ALL joy” seriously, even when faced with the toughest days of her life?
Yes, we’re surrounded by them. Heavenly sponges, who when squeezed, drip Christ’s love onto all they encounter.
What about you? Are you dripping Jesus, too?
