One morning I was enjoying taking a walk. It had been a good week. Far from perfect, but I felt that the week had gone well. I was enjoying the morning and time by myself. Then the question came to my mind, “Did Jesus enjoy being here?”
The question came in response to really enjoying the morning. I was enjoying the richness of life that I am experiencing. I was thankful for where I was and what I was doing. I was thankful for those who God had surrounded me with at this time.
That led me to think about Christ time on earth. Not the time recorded for us in scripture “¦ but the moments in between. Was He frustrated waiting to “wrap up God’s plan?” Did He feel like we do in the doctor’s office as we just have to sit and wait and grow more frustrated? Did He want to be somewhere else?
I don’t think it was that way at all. I think Jesus had the ability to recognize the damage of sin but enjoy and embrace what was still good in this world. I believe He saw the moments of joy as true times of worship. I believe He embraced life and what it meant to be human even in the midst of a deeply scarred creation.
I think He enjoyed being here”¦
