What Have You Done For Me Lately?

I recently turned 33. I joke that I want a big party in a couple of months when I can celebrate that I'm a third of a century old. A friend of mine teased me by asking, "Jesus saved the world when he was 33. What have you done?" Ouch.

Yesterday I also celebrated my ninth "spiritual birthday," the anniversary of my rebirth in baptism. In the same way, Jesus saved the world in his third year of ministry.

Looks like I have my work cut out for me.

"spirthdays" are more special to me than my real birthday. on my birthdays I usually tend to feel sad to see another year slip by. But on my spiritual birthday, I am in a totally different mood which is very positve and grateful.

@Greg
Interesting thought. Our physical birthdays mark the passing of another year while our spiritual birthdays bring us one year closer to heaven.
