Stealing Jesus - A
Soul Snack 9/195 ... Stealing Jesus - A
Mercilessly nailed under the malevolent will of brothers and the spineless rule of Rome, this living metaphor witnessed innocence to the world and blessed the ignorant. All this happened while He was being robbed of life.
To those who would wish to understand, He had demonstrated the soul awakening call in the upper room only hours previously. 'Do for others as I have done for you' was the upper room imperative to all who would have their feet washed from heaven.
The mettle of Calvary and example of the upper room, to this day continues to test those who would claim allegiance to the only risen God.
Christ's undeniable appeal is for a most robust devotion.
This devotion will 'out-bully' my own bullying self-will. It will be uneasy with compromise and unsettled by indulgence.
It is my relentless self-will that strives to steal Jesus from me.
In the same way, any of you who does not give up everything he has cannot be my disciple. Lk 14:33
