The most interesting man in the world.
You know him. People hang on his every word, even the prepositions. His legend precedes him, like lightning precedes thunder. When in Rome, they do as he does. His friends don’t throw him going away parties, they just follow him. Even his enemies list him as their emergency contact. He’s been in all the most interesting circumstances in human history.
OK, it’s the guy from the beer commercials. But you know, you could say all that about Jesus too. There is one big difference. The guy in the beer commercial does it all himself. Jesus? He only does them with us.
On our own, we’re probably not all that interesting, I mean not like the guy in the beer commercial. But together in Jesus?
We are the Church. We are called to be … the most interesting people in the world.
“You are the light of the world. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” (Mt 5:14,16)
