Jesus Christ Superstar » Right Now Jesus Jones

My name is Smarty Jones -- Embracing Gods Glory

Our deepest fear us not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us…..We are born to manifest the glory of God that is within us….And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.

Nelson Mandela

Today more than ever we live in times of public murder via internet and the awareness of the dirty little secrets of wartime interrogation. Yet, this weekend we as a country got a breathe of fresh air by watching a little horse letting go of his inadequacy's and race around a dirt track looking for his one shot at Glory. If a nation is so hungry for winners by getting behind a horse named Smarty Jones, then who are we not to embrace the Glory of God and share it with others?

Not long ago I read a quote in the book, "Jesus - Life Coach" that read, "Are you living your life like you only have six healthy months to live? I answered NO! and then I asked myself, why? I didn't have an answer. Did I fear inadequacy? Or did I fear, what if God blessed me beyond measure? Could I handle being in the spot light? Could I live up to the world's expectations of me or my expectations of myself? I really don't think it's our place to decide what we can handle and not, it's God's. Yet, it is our desire to live by Faith. The bible says, "with God who can be against us." Our feelings of inadequacy is just another way of Satan trying to trick us into thinking we are not worthy of God's glory or even living a life full of happiness and love down here on earth.

Smarty Jones is similar to the legend Sea biscuit in which the only thing both horses needed was someone to believe in them. We have that to within us just waiting to be manifested. Jesus Christ lives in us just waiting to shine. I challenge you this week to not live your life in the dark, but embrace the Glory of God that glows within you. It's nothing to be frightened of. Who knows we may only have six healthy months to live, what are we going to do with them? Is your name Smarty Jones or just another running around in circles with no game plan in life? Who knows, by embracing God's Glory someone may get behind you and follow you around the track all the way to the cross.
