Imagine yourself going to a computer store and asking to see the latest MacBook Pro. The salesman shows you the computer and points out all the specs, gigabytes, RAM, and other impressive tech facts. At this point, you’re so excited to see it in action that you excitedly ask the salesman to turn it on and let you “give it a spin.” To your horror, the salesman explains that the MacBook Pro is not meant to be used; it’s merely meant to be admired. “What a joke!” you would think to yourself. Shouldn’t it be reasonable that the latest computer not only be built to look good, but also to function? We are no better representations of Christ if all we do is try to look good with no functionality of true righteousness going on in the inside. Both are important, but perhaps the onlooking world exclaims, “What a joke!” to us.
