The speaker in the opening session today asked this question:
"What about your youth ministry is an embarrassment to Jesus?"
That single question has raised a bunch of other questions in my mind. A few are...
- Can God ever really be embarrassed by his Children? Does his total love for us make it impossible to be embarrassed by us? I don't know.
- If we can embarrass him, is he more embarrassed by junk in my heart or visible junk that mis-represents him to others? Maybe both?
- Certainly a poorly delivered message or a half-hearted video doesn't embarrass him, does it?
I'm sure that if God is capable of being embarrassed by me or my ministry, then I've given him plenty to be embarrassed about.
