"Your task is to be true, not popular." ~~Jesus

I’m in a very busy season and reblogging the excellent thoughts of men and women I follow is a good thing for me this week. Here is a helpful reminder that truth and faithfulness to Christ, who gave His life for us will win the last day. Thanks to Michael Wilson for this helpful reminder.

Quotes, thoughts and musings

Being true to Jesus runs counter to our culture. Of course, being true is exactly how Jesus lived. Jesus calls for a radical commitment. He is truth.

Jesus knows that there’s trouble ahead when you live only for the approval of others, saying what flatters them, doing what indulges them. Popularity contests are not truth contests.

Jesus challenges me to live and say the truth. He does not demand I be popular.

May I win the truth contest.

Your task is to be true, not popular.” ~~Jesus (Luke 6:26 The Message)
