On a friend’s facebook status, she wrote something about being Friended by Jesus (based on John 15), which spawned this snarky comment from me:
Being “friended” means I can now see Jesus’ profile and am now vulnerable to him seeing mine.
And this snarky twitter update from me.
Jesus: “No longer do I call you servants…but I have called you friend.” Great, Jesus friended me…now he can see my profile.
Oh ho…so clever, young pastor…but oddly enough, check out my inbox not 3 minutes later!!
I’m not sure of the theological statement of “Jesus is following ME” but it was a humorous occurrence not three minutes after yucking it up about “friending” Jesus.
Oh, the internets. You amuse me.
[[UPDATE 1: Uh oh, look out. It’s spreading. A message from a twitterer:
Jesus saw your profile and in spite of it friended you…just like he did me….AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!
I guess if I can come up with pithy theological statements like this in a trendy medium, I really am cut out for youth ministry.]]
