Like me, you have probably taken a few of those Facebook quizzes “What Color Are You?” or “Which Flower Are You?” I think I am blue and Daffodil. Recently, I took a quiz about what band from the 80’s I am. I came up with Siouxsie and the Banshees (I don’t even really remember them). I don’t know if there is a “Which Disciple Are You?” quiz. So, I thought I’d put one here. Think about the following:
1. Do you attend worship regularly?
2. What is your favorite flower?
3. Which do you prefer: Tea or Coffee?
4. What would you rather do on your day off? A) Bike B) Sleep C) Read
5. Which is your favorite book of the Bible?
Done? Okay, now I am going to analyze your results. . . .
You are yourself!! You don’t need to be anything or anyone other than who you are: God Loves YOU for exactly who you are. Follow Christ as best you are able. Be a part of a faith community if you can. Give to your neighbor. You be the best you can be. You don’t need me or anyone telling you which disciple you are. Just be yourself. God loves you in the Risen Christ.
