"In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus." Phil 2:5

"Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is-his good, pleasing and perfect will. " 
Romans 12:2

How many times have you seen a commercial, billboard, or ad on your social media that grabbed your attention? The commercials of the big and juicy burger that immediately makes your mouth water. Those darn shopping sites make that certain outfit look so bomb that you break out your debit/credit card right then because you now have to have it. They advertise them so well to grab our attention and entice us to buy their product. How clever! It is sad to say that most of the time you drive through to order that burger you saw on the commercial that was so juicy and delightful ends up being about 1/4 of the size and "juicy" is pretty far from the description. And that outfit that you HAD TO HAVE is awful on and now just hangs in your closet and hasn't seen the outside of it. What if there was a product that was the best product this world has known. You would want to advertise it in the best way possible right?! A product that you are so proud of, you would want to show it off the best way you could. A product that has changed your life in every way. Yes! I would promote the heck out of it! What if this product I'm speaking of is Jesus? How is your life and every day walk advertising how great He is? Are you the best ad for Him? When people experience you from day to day does it make them want to run to Him or away from Him? People aren't turning down Jesus, they are turning down your advertisement. Because if they truly experience Jesus, they wouldn't want anything else. We need to live in such a way that when people see us they see Him. Our lives matter so much and our every day walk and display of Christ is so very important to this world. You are sitting there thinking "God what is my purpose? " ..well that is a huge purpose! We are living billboards for Jesus! The way we live matters and could change so many souls. Our lives won't be perfect, but it should point to someone who is. God is not asking you to be perfect, he's just asking you to make a new commercial. Today, take time to think about your life and every area of it. What are things in your life that aren't the best representation of Him? Are you portraying Him in the best way to everyone you encounter? Let's make it a priority to make it known how truly amazing our God is. Challenge yourself to set a standard of your "billboard" for Jesus and make a new one!
