Sizzle Reel of Life

May 30, 2012

“You are judging by appearances. If anyone is confident that they belong to Christ, they should consider again that we belong to Christ just as much as they do.” –2 Corinthians 10:7

Read: 2 Corinthians 10

Yesterday I was blessed to spend the day in some incredible circles and meetings. In fact, this entry was written during one of them. Sitting with the amazing creative group at Bagg Street Productions, we brainstormed and discussed how we were going to package PrayFit to send to churches and groups across the country. We took material of past speaking engagements, headlines and some of our quotes, all in an effort to distill the PrayFit message down to a three-minute reel. Only three minutes? Better choose only my best.

I sat excited. They’ll omit my mistakes, delete my stutters and polish my presentation. After all, they don’t call it a sizzle reel for nothin’. But it was at that moment that I gave a noticeable pause to mentally write this entry (the team there no doubt noticed).

Isn’t that what we do in life? We want the world to see only the good stuff. Put on the good face and step with the right foot. Nothing wrong with me (smile)! Accept me, follow me, love me. But God really knows us, doesn’t He? And He accepts us, follows us and loves us despite ourselves. He sees the best of us, but He wants the rest of us. And when it comes to our minds, our jobs and our health, let’s do just that. In the end, when our lives are distilled down, it’s only Jesus we want others to see.

    Wow…great words to ponder. Just this morning, I sent an email to a friend, accidentally hit the wrong button, and sent a jumbled mess that I had not edited first. How embarrassing. Prayfit reminded me…my life is “unedited and uncorrected” before an all-knowing God and He loves me anyway.

    Like you said, Jimmy, when it is all said and done…only what’s done for Christ matters, anyway!

    Jimmy, what a righteous, true and humbling enlightened you’ve declared! It is an awesome feeling when we stop and re-edify ourselves of the Lord’s love. He unconditionally accepts us just the way we are in all our magnificence as the Father’s children and in our total humanity which He well understands!
