Don’t call me baby
...or homeboy, or Cyborg Pirate Ninja, or....
Your view of Jesus will shape your response to Jesus.
If Jesus is just your homeboy (check the t-shirt); then you’ll treat him like you treat any other buddy or mate.
If you view Jesus as a Cyborg Pirate Ninja (check this); then you’ll probably live in constant fear that he is going to sneak up on you and break your neck!
If you “like the Christmas Jesus best” (check this vid); then you’ll keep him wrapped up as a cute little baby in a manger, packed away with the Christmas decorations for the rest of the year.
Here’s the deal. Just like you and me, Jesus was once just a little baby. He cried. He crawled. He crapped. His birthday party, Christmas, is coming up soon. Two questions:
1. Why do we celebrate the birth of a baby from 2000 years ago?
2. What will cause you to think about Jesus more than just at Christmas?
