Jesus did it all....just right. His was of the ideal, yea perfect, temperament. Watch in marvel. Let your jaw drop. Jesus knew how to do every moment in such perfection one could swear it was God walking. Ah, He was.
Jesus did what we can't do well. He could handle the needy with compassion while dealing with the critics head-on without hesitation. Jesus never mis-stepped. One might say Jesus could step through the sewers without stepping in it. One of our greatest flaws is we can't do criticism well. We are short-fused and get miffed and then distracted in our mif-fortune. Jesus didn't.
Jesus could see one in need while feeling immediate threats of disapproval. He would not hesitate to do the right thing; yet would not spend much time fretting the hatefuls. We reverse the order: we dabble in compassion and flail in the cesspool of gawking accusers. Yes our mouths speak loudly that something ought to be done for the poor among us; but our spirits of contempt for others leaps out in front of our words and shoots down our original good intentions.
Truly, we must continue to grow in the nature and the spirit of Jesus' perfect and full disposition. The world has never seen anything like him since.....or has it? Yes, it should. And by the grace of God we will work to see that it sees his style again and again and again. We will not let the haters of the Jesus walk cause us to stop from becoming just like him. No, we will step up our pace. We will become more compassionate and much less miffed. And if we find people don't like us? We'll try to not let it bother us anymore than it did him. His was a mission to win the world. Ours shall be nothing less!
