When I initially saw this I thought it was hilarious…
Especially the served verse. [that link is for those of you less used to slang and scared of Urban Dictionary dot com] Then I thought it was awful…
Then I thought it was amazing…
Then I thought it was sacrilegious…
Then I thought…
I wonder what JESUS thinks?

After reading John Eldridge’s “Beautiful Outlaw” I landed here…
I think Jesus thinks it’s hilarious.
I’ve learned a few things about the personality of Jesus.
He was a whimsical man with an amazing sense of humor.
He wasn’t this boring, serious, drab man.
No group of obnoxious and loud fisherman would have dropped their nets and followed that man.
I think He laughs at playful teasing of Himself and dished it out as well.

Just as He messed with His 2 disciples on the Road to Emmaus.
Talk about the ultimate of jokes…
Disguise yourself the day of your resurrection, walk with 2 of your boys and not let them know who you are, walk for hours, act like you are “continuing on”, have dinner, when they finally recognize you…poof, you disappear.

I think that reverencey must not be mistaken with stiffness.
We must never lose sight of Jesus’ ultimate sacrifice and the honor we pay Him…
But nobody can fall in love with a Hallmark card.
They will fall in love with Jesus who is full of playfulness, intensity, focus, and radical grace.
So here is what I think Jesus thought about this picture…
I think He saw it and said…
“Now that’s funny…So anyways, about this election thing happening in the states…”

What do you think about the image above and what do you think Jesus thinks about it?
