Today I had an interesting exchange with a dear friend of mine. It went like this:
I’m not sure exactly how the name error occurred. (Auto-correct can be really terrible. I disabled it on my phone.) I did send back a reply saying that I was glad to finally know my alter-ego’s name. As I went about my preparations for the day, I continued to chuckle about “Joelene” and was just silly enough to wonder which was the “good” me—Jennifer or Joelene?
And then I remembered these verses:
10 As it is written:
“There is no one righteous, not even one;
11 there is no one who understands;
there is no one who seeks God.
12 All have turned away,
they have together become worthless;
there is no one who does good,
not even one.”
Romans 3:10-12 (NIV, emphasis added)
Joelene, Jennifer, it doesn’t matter what the name is. If you see any good in me, it’s because of Jesus. Without the Baby in the manger, I’m nothing.
