"Too Much Jesus"

"When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory".  Colossians 3:4
One of my young customers and her mother were looking at some bracelets at the store yesterday.  Her mother picked up a bracelet that was made up of crosses.  She asked her daughter if she liked that one.  Her daughter replied, "It is too much Jesus".  What?!  The mother almost came unglued and immediately, along with others who were standing by, said "you can never have too much Jesus".
I am not sure what the girl meant by that but I can't help but think that that is exactly what is wrong with the world.  People in the world, even people in the church and even some professing Christians think you can have too much Jesus-- or that you don't need that much Jesus.  They have the mentality that a "little Jesus will do you".  Wrong!
You can't have a little bit of Jesus-- that is an impossibility.  Why?  Because that is the same thing as being lukewarm.  You can't have just enough Jesus to get by.  You can't have some of Jesus and think you are going to enter into heaven.  It doesn't work that way.  He has to be ALL.  He has to dwell in you-- all of Him.  
Don't believe the lie that says you don't have to have all that Jesus, you are being fanatical, a Jesus freak and going overboard.  No, according to Him you do have to have a lot of Him-- all of Him and He has to have all of you.  He has to become your life, your breath, your movement, your wisdom, your thoughts, your guidance, your everything and in all areas of your life. 

Have a great day.  You can never have too much Jesus.
