What if?

What if, for one day, Jesus were to become you?
- Max Lucado

What if, for twenty-four hours, Jesus wakes up in your bed,
walks in your shoes, lives in your house, assumes your
schedule? Your boss becomes his boss, your mother
becomes his mother, your pains become his pains? With
one exception, nothing about your life changes. Your health
doesn't change. Your circumstances don't change. Your
schedule isn't altered. Your problems aren't solved. Only one
change occurs.

What if, for one day and one night, Jesus lives your life with
his heart? Your heart gets the day off, and your life is led by
the heart of Christ. His priorities govern your actions. His
passions drive your decisions. His love directs your behavior.

What would you be like? Would people notice a change?
Your family -- would they see something new? Your
coworkers -- would they sense a difference? What about the
less fortunate? Would you treat them the same? And your
friends? Would they detect more joy? How about your
enemies? Would they receive more mercy from Christ's
heart than from yours?

And you? How would you feel? What alterations would this
transplant have on your stress level? Your mood swings?
Your temper? Would you sleep better? Would you see
sunsets differently? Death differently? Taxes differently?
Any chance you'll need fewer aspirin or sedatives? How
about your reaction to traffic delays? (Ouch, that touched
a nerve.) Would you still dread what you are dreading?
Better yet, would still do what you are doing?

Would you still do what you had planned to do for the next
twenty-four hours? Pause and think about your
schedule. Obligations. Engagements. Outings. Appointments.
With Jesus taking over your heart, would anything change?

Keep working on this for a moment. Adjust the lens of your
imagination until you have a clear picture of Jesus leading
your life, then snap the shutter and frame the image. What
you see is what God wants. He wants you to "think and
act like Christ Jesus" (Phil 2:5).
