You Represent Him

If you’re wondering why I’m spending so much time talking and writing about this Unglued book, and why I think it’s so important to make wise choices in the midst of raw emotions.  Here’s why:  It’s about PR.  

In college, I was in a sorority. One of the things that was expected of us if we were wearing our “letters,” we needed to look good.  We were supposed to be a good representation for “the brand.”

If you believe in God, then you represent a brand.  Maybe you wear a cross necklace, or have a bumper sticker on your car, same thing.  It’s not necessarily about looking good on the outside, but acting in a loving non-judgmental way.  Treat others the way Jesus would.  Don’t come “Unglued”.  You represent Him.

I had a pastor that once said, “God has a PR problem, we’re all walking around misrepresenting Him.”  

I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to be as Lysa says, “a plastic version of Godliness,” or an Exploder, or a Stuffer, or someone that points out what is wrong with everyone all the time. I don't want to be a PR problem.  I want to be a real, loving, and forgiving, example for God.  

“So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.” –John 13:34-35

The thing that really makes me come unglued is having people tell me how I should be and not listening when I am trying to tell them why I did what I did.  I'm usually just trying to help get things done but I get told by my husband, sister and grown son that I should be a certain way.  If I am in God and he is in me why can't people accept me for who I am and stop trying to change me.  I just want the same unconditional love I give them.
