The wild Christ

I'm going to try to post this week but I may not manage to get a lot written online. This thought did, however, occur to me. I've been pondering how hard we work, those of us who profess Christ, to domesticate Him--and God in general...

The empty tomb was not just surprising. It was shocking, and even terrifying. It appears the Roman watchers assigned to guard the tomb mentioned in the Gospel thought so--or why would they have fled?

May the untamed, wild, subversive Christ confront you this week--however He chooses to do it.

Are you scared? I am, a little bit. But for those who claim to follow Him, a domesticated, house cat, marginal Jesus really isn't an option.

More on this theme later.
