Let's Be Real

What is your life saying? What is my life saying? Is it about me or about others? I don't want to be a part of the ME generation. I want my heart to be broken for others. I want my life to make a difference. 
Years ago I saw a bumper sticker that read, "Is your life a message or a mess?" It asked me if I had an anchored purpose or if I was like flotsam- floating around with no anchor. I would like to challenge each one of us to examine our lives. To examine our moments. Our thoughts. Our actions. To really see if Jesus is our reason for existence. If He is our first love, we need to live it. James was explicit when he penned that "faith without works in dead". Likewise, he let us know that works without faith has little meaning. If we love Jesus, we should not be a ME generation. We should be living faith in action for others. We should be on the front lines for Jesus.
So where are you now? Where am I? Jesus knows where we are. Are we ready to be truthful with Him? Are we really ready to examine our hearts? Are we ready to be a message for Him instead of a mess with no purpose? Let's be real with Him so we can be real with others.
