Recently my husband experienced a bad case of the flu. He had fever for several days and at one point couldn't even leave the bed for over twenty-four hours straight. We actually "quarantined" him for a few days in our bedroom. No one could go in and he rarely came out. If so, he had his hand over his mouth the whole time so not to spread his germs. When you looked at his face it was like you couldn't recognize him..he was sick! It just had "flu" written all over it. He was infected! An infection is described in the dictionary as "a condition resulting from an invasion". This is what we must allow Jesus to do within us. When we take HIM into our lives there is an invasion that should happen. HE should invade our thoughts, our words, our motives, our feelings, our wants, and all of our needs. Just like I could see the flu taking over my husbands body, people should be able to see Jesus taking over ours. People should be able to look at us and say that they can see Jesus in our face. By the way we act, speak and love we should have him written all over us. Our life should be infected by the love of Jesus to the point that we infect those around us. John 3:30 "He must become greater, I must become less." Be infectious!
