Jesus is a ninja…

Reading the Gospel today, I couldn’t help but think that Jesus was showing his ninja skills when he evaded the stoning they aimed at him after His proclamation that “I AM”.  I led the communion service this morning and I have to say it was weird saying those words from Jesus this morning.  Not just because they are so important for us to hear that Jesus said them, but because when you read them in the Gospel of John, it is as if you are saying them.

Knowing my sinfulness, I expected that I would be stoned and run out of the service this morning, but thanks to His mercy, I was allowed to stay and offered a simple reflection based on th

e video reflection that I watched from the USCCB website.  I don’t understand the sig

nificance of the ninja theme that has been

the focus of my last few posts, but I have the pro

mise from  the Word of God, that God will work it together for good for those that love Him

and are called according to His purpose.  (Romans 8:28)

I am leaning on the Holy Spirit to lead my whole life and I hope that Jesus is taking the things that I struggle with in my life and preparing to reveal to me how I will be converted and continue to repent from my past sins and look to the future that is planned for me in heaven.

 I pray that my words on this post and this prayer can bring light to someone’s darkness and allow them to lean on the mercy that is promised to all those who strive to obey His Word…Amen!

One thought on “Jesus is a ninja…

  1. Enjoyed the article. The “I Am” statement is powerful. It reminds me of the burning bush scene in Exodus when Moses asks God, “Who should I say sent me?” and the voice says, “Tell them, I Am has sent you.” These words just demonstrate to me the divinity of Jesus and how it angered the Pharisees that He was making Himself equal to God.

    As you mentioned, God works together for good to those who are called according to His purposes. We are to be a light on top of a city so that others can see our good works and give glory to God. Keep praying for the lost and writing blogs to magnify the Lord Jesus so that others can lean on the mercy that is promised to those who follow the Christ.
