Make Jesus your star


Jesus Star

Frankly, I don’t get the allure of Hollywood — and I don’t get the stars on the sidewalk. I host foreign students who learn English. They ALL want to see Hollywood. Little do they know that Hollywood is ghetto, with abundance of drugs and grimy streets.

But those foreign students, invariably, like to get a selfie with the star of their favorite performer.

Why anyone would want people to walk all over their name, I’ll never know. It seems like a dishonor, not an honor. But Hollywood is full of such contradictions that go totally unnoticed by people infatuated with this world.

This I know: the darker this world gets — and it IS growing darker — the brighter the light of Jesus. The more that sin becomes “acceptable,” the more people are going to suffer its ravages. They will need a Savior more and more desperately.

Hey, I’m tempted, and I sin, but the attraction of God is greater. I always come back. I keep following God. Because there’s nothing better, nothing like Him. His love is amazing. Freedom is incredible.

Make Jesus your star.

  2. Thank you so much for the “Likes” at our new site today! We hope you will return and tell your friends and readers about us!

  3. Oh my gosh I so needed this today. I feel so weighed down by my sin and it just goes to show that God has taken the backseat in my life as life goes.

  4. LOL! I love that Hollywood star. Amen 😉

  5. Yes. I make Jesus my Star!

  6. My favorite quote from the BB of A.A.,
    “to live a life that is happy, joyous and FREE.”
    Free from guilt, shame and remorse,
    yes, freedom is incredible.
    The only stars that one need worship are the stars in the sky.
    Love, hugs and blessings … ME

  7. Your post reminds of Philippians where is says we are to “shine like stars in a wicked generation.” Quite the contrast. I’m slightly encouraged by the stats on the Christian and “traditional values” type movies of recent years. Hollywood is beginning to recognize the monetary value of such big screen offerings.
