We assume that the divine Savior is eager to save every human being, but a recent Onion interview reveals his that he finds annoying people as annoying as the rest of us:
“It usually brings me great joy to share my love and forgiveness with all God’s children, but when Derek sought the holy power of my redemption, I have to admit that I really wanted no part of it,” said Christ, explaining His unease over building a spiritual communion with a man He described as “all in all, pretty annoying.” “I would have been perfectly happy with never cleansing Derek of his sins and transgressions, but, unfortunately, when a believer reaches out to me with faith in their hearts, I kind of have to reach back, even if it’s Derek.”
The entire interview is eye-opening. It certainly gave me a new perspective on Christ’s work of salvation. I guess it really is work for him.
I certainly hope that I’m not one of those annoying people that even Jesus finds difficult to love.
