Is Jesus Like Me?

A personality test is given where people are asked to answer questions about Jesus then the same questions, modified slightly, about themselves. The results, everyone thinks Jesus is like him or her. The results show although we think we are becoming more like Jesus, the reverse is true we are making Jesus more like us. We project onto Jesus our own image.- "The Blue Parakeet" Pg 49 para 1

I agree with that test, I think many people have formed Jesus in their image.

We must be careful when we think:
1. Isn't it amazing Jesus listens to the same music as me.

2. Isn't it amazing Jesus votes the way I do.

3. Isn't it amazing Jesus dislikes the same people I do.

4. Isn't it amazing how wrong all those other denominations are about Jesus.

We should think:
1. God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble, so I better be humble.

2. I am not Jesus.

3. I, by God's grace, am a Jesus follower.

4. I have not arrived.

5. I hunger for the world to be right and I abundantly give mercy. It's not either, or.

What would you add to the list of "should not think"?
