Your One Job  

The moment he said it, you knew you’d remember it.

We had just finished recording a Moody Radio special with Attorney David Gibbs, Jr. His ministry, the Christian Law Association, assists Christians under fire as they live out their biblical faith.

Though the list of those opposing Christians is long—and getting longer—Attorney Gibbs stressed our need as Christ-followers to be kind and gracious, even as we stand up for our legal rights. That's when he declared, "I have one job in life: to make Jesus look good."

I felt my conscience rumble as I pondered a recent phone conversation about a computer problem. My demeanor toward the tech was less than gracious—and I surely did not make Jesus look good.

What about you?

  • When the grocery cashier is slow (and almost seems to revel in their slowness)—do you still choose to make Jesus look good?
  • When you vehemently disagree with the penalty call at your kid's soccer game, does your response make Jesus look good?
  • When coworkers or relatives make snarky comments about "Bible thumpers like you,"—do you make Jesus look good?

We can quote Bible verses with the best of them and know every line from every worship chorus. But our reactions speak louder than our memorized Scriptures or our songs.

Best we focus on that one job: make Jesus look good.
