Ever since Melissa changed jobs last July, we’ve had Fridays off together. Fridays have been kinda deemed by the two of us as our ‘date day.’ That’s the day we spend out shopping, going to movies, eating out, and whatever else we want to do.
We often kinda take turns picking out what we’re gonna do on our Friday date day (although, she’s really good with the ‘it doesn’t matter to me’ thing). For the last few weeks, I had been wanting to go to Chipotle for lunch… it’s just one of those places that I get the craving for at times. Friday morning, Melissa and I woke up and and she woke up just as excited about Chipotle as I was…. it wasn’t even her pick of restaurant, but she was excited about it.
That made me even more excited.
You see, deep down, I want her to like what I like. I want her to want to do what I want to do. When she does, it gets me even more excited about what’s going on.When Melissa gets excited about what I’m excited about, it makes me happy.
Jesus is the same way with us.
- When we get excited about what he gets excited about.
- When we love the way he loves.
- When we care about what he cares about.
- When we act like he would act.
I hope and pray that Jesus gets excited because I’m excited about the same things that he is.
Is Jesus Excited because you are?
