There’s only one role for God’s casting call — to be like Jesus. Take on the character of Christ - Daily Bible Reflections March 3,2015


DON’T PLAY THE PART
— LIVE IT
 
All their works are performed to be seen... – Matthew 23:5
 
       Any good actor knows that in order to play his part well, he would have to internalize the character — the traits, manner of speaking, mannerisms, etc. But after acting the part, when the lights, sounds and camera are turned off, and when the audience have applauded, he retires his roles like the costumes he wore. It was all for show.
       Sometimes, we live life the same way — saying the right words, doing the good deeds, being the right person — all for public portrayal and praise without the sincerity, virtue or integrity required. We do it for the photo op that we can post on Facebook. In truth, there’s a wide gap between who we are and how we want people to see us.
       Let’s close this gap by disregarding perceived public opinions of our person, and instead discover our approval in Christ who made the ultimate expression of affirmation by giving up His life for us. When we do, we realize that people-pleasing is pointless in the light of a God who is already well-pleased with us. Thus, whatever role God has entrusted you with, don’t play the part — live it.

Father, mold Me to authentically and totally be more like Your Son, Jesus.
 
St. Katharine Drexel, pray for us.
