Today’s light bulb moment came at work

I wished I weren’t at work this morning, and this is no Monday blues.  I have never hated to be at a place this much before.  Ever.  I thought to myself, “if only I don’t need to be here, how wonderful would it be?  God, please give me another job?”

I then started to wonder, bet Jesus didn’t need to work, or face the crap that I do on a daily basis.  I mean, Jesus would have a more understanding boss than I do, right?  There’d be no pressure at work for him, would there?  People would listen to him, pay attention to what he said?  There’s definitely more satisfaction with what he’s achieved, you know, the moment he sighed, “it’s finished!”

Well, let’s see.  No doubt God is a loving God.  But I’m not sure what went thru Jesus’ mind in the garden of Gathsemene, when he asked God to remove the cup.  Don’t forget the Pharisees, they were at every corner trying to trick him, waiting for the perfect moment to pounce.

Don’t think for a moment Jesus had it good.  He went around, performing miracles, feeding the thousands, teaching and sharing.  When it came to the crunch though, no on really cared when he was on the cross dying.  

I don’t think God will have me around corners sharing the gospel or evangelising just yet.  I mean, I can’t stand my fellow colleagues giving me the cold shoulder.  How would I be able to withstand the scorn people give me when I’m on the street?  Still plenty to learn for me.  It’s only the first day at God’s school….
