That’s the title of this site and it’s the motto that I try to live my life by.
It’s more than a title or a motto to me.
It’s a calling to live up to.
It’s a calling to walk out.
But what does it mean?
It means what it says.
I believe that we should be so filled with the love of Jesus, so filled with the grace of Jesus, so filled with the mercy of Jesus, so filled with, well, Jesus, that we literally Drip Jesus everywhere we go.
I believe that if we cross paths with someone, then they should leave the encounter sopping wet.
Because they’ve encountered the radical love, grace, and mercy of Jesus, Who is living within us.
And when people have been with people who are Dripping Jesus, they are changed in a way that only Jesus can change them.
Dripping Jesus is more than something we do.
Dripping Jesus is who we are.
I can microwave hot-dogs, but that doesn’t make me a cook.
I can write a blog, but that doesn’t make me a writer.
I can drive a car, but that doesn’t make me a professional driver.
I can balance a check book, but that doesn’t make me an accountant.
I can go to church, give my tithe, teach Sunday School, volunteer at a nursing home, feed the homeless, post bible verses to Facebook, go to seminary, attend conferences, read the latest books, speak Christianese, listen to Christian music, or whatever else good Christians are supposed to do.
And still not Drip Jesus.
Because all that stuff can be done without Jesus.
Just because we do something in the Name of Jesus doesn’t mean we are doing it with Jesus.
I’m sorry but it’s true.
Without Jesus all of that stuff is empty and shallow. And empty and shallow does not change lives.
In fact, I believe empty and shallow does more harm than good because it leads to legalism and surface-level faith.
We need to be filled.
Filled with His love.
Filled with His grace.
Filled with His mercy.
Filled with Him.
Because if we are, if we are truly filled with Jesus to the point that we are Dripping Jesus, others will want to be filled with what we are.
And isn’t that what we want?
