Author: Erin Bunting
Contributor: Pat Sage
Published: Unknown

Shopping in the store recently I saw a bottle of juice with the following description on its label:  "Blueberry Pomegranate, 100 percent juice, all natural."

[The label featured a picture of a ripe pomegranate and mounds of fat, perfect blueberries]

"And then I read the ingredients list: 'Filtered water, pear juice concentrate, apple juice concentrate, grape juice concentrate." Where was the blueberry? Where was the pomegranate? Finally I found them, fifth and seventh on a list of nine ingredients, after mysteriously unspecified 'natural flavors.'

By law, food ingredients are listed in descending order of weight. That means a product contains the greatest proportion of the first ingredient on the list and successively less of those farther down. So according to this list, the jug in my hand held mostly water and other juices, with just enough blueberry and pomegranate for flavor and color.

In the bottom corner of the front label, in small, easy-to-miss type, were the tell-tale words: 'Flavored juice blend with other natural ingredients.' The enticing pictures and clever labeling were decoys to sell a diluted, blueberry-pomegranate flavored product, convincingly disguised to look like something it wasn't. I put the juice back on the shelf."


Application:

Erin Bunting adds, "I left the store empty-handed and wondering, What if I had an ingredients list printed on me? Would Jesus be the main ingredient? If not, how far down the list would he be? Would my 'label' accurately represent my contents? Or would I falsely project a misleading outward appearance that cleverly masked diluted ingredients? My packaging may be convincing. I may look and sound like the real thing. But what if someone came to me looking for Jesus beneath my "Christian" label and found something else? Something Jesus-flavored, but not Jesus-filled?"

Scripture: 2 Corinthians 3:6-18, Genesis 1:26-27
Published: Live Science
"While you may be familiar with the old saying, 'opposites attract,' in reality, what the heart wants is someone who resembles its owner – and that resemblance increases, the longer two lovebirds stay together.
 
"University of Michigan psychologist Robert Zajonc conducted an experiment to test this phenomenon. He analyzed photographs of couples taken when they were newlyweds and photographs of the same couples taken 25 years later.
 
"The results showed that the couples had grown to look more like each other over time. And, the happier that the couple said they were, the more likely they were to have increased in their physical similarity."
 
—Excerpt from "Why Do Couples Start to Look Like Each Other?" by Amber Angelle

Application:

The same principle is at work in our relationship with Jesus. Having been created in God's image, we are supposed to "resemble" Him. Yet sin has distorted that image. Thankfully, God sent Jesus to restore what has been distorted.

Just like couples in a happy, loving relationship—the longer we walk with Him, the more we begin to look like Him.

Are you happily wed to Jesus? Does it show?

"And you should imitate me, just as I imitate Christ" (1 Corinthians 11:1, NLT).

"You can tell whether you are becoming a servant by how you act when people treat you like one."

[Gordon McDonald, Christian author, speaker, educator]


Application:

We don't mind the idea of service so long as we have control over how and where we serve and feel that our efforts are recognized and appreciated. Good thing Jesus didn't serve with these stipulations. He served in humiliation and affliction. He served while being rejected, despised and abused for His efforts. He served because it met our needs, not because it met His.

"For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many" (Mark 10:45).
