Jeremiah 11:18-20, Ps 7, John 7:40-52

Befriending Christ

I know Jesus is more than a prophet. He shares the prophet’s pain of isolation, mis- understanding and people plotting behind his back. I must share that pain if I want to accompany Jesus to Calvary. Jesus Christ needs me to be so much more than ‘Christ-like’ on this journey. He needs me as a friend, a real person who is capable of suffering with him and loving him in his darkest hours. A real person is a holy person at heart, not just ‘like’ a holy person acting out a role.
