It is a question I struggle with often. What do I stand for? I know I want to stand for Jesus, but is that really the part of my life that speaks to the people I encounter everyday? Do they feel his love and grace flow through me, or am I just another "Christian," wearing the name but not the bearing the cross. And the truth is most days, I don't know. I am so weak, so often tempted and so often selfish. I should be amazed that anyone can ever see Jesus in me. But that is the miracle of faith. We don't have to be perfect, because Jesus is. He uses us and shines through us even when we falter and fail. If we stand for him, he will stand with us through the hard times and the dark nights. I may doubt myself, but he never doubts me. He loves me, cares for me and lifts me up when everything else may be putting me down.
So what do I stand for? I stand for a Savior who loves me even when I don't know exactly what I stand for, because it's not about me. It's all about Jesus. How cool is that?
Because of Jesus,
