Appreciating Jesus. Or not.

 
A while back I was reading a devotional that prompted me to “Tell Jesus three things you appreciate about Him.”

And while intellectually there was a LOT I could appreciate, I just WASN’T having it.
I just was in a bad mood, and sad mood, and I wasn’t going to be all

JESUS THANK YOU FOR YOUR GREAT SACRIFICE!!!!!! I HAVE VICTORY OVER DEATH BECAUSE OF YOU!!!!! YOU ARE SOOOOOOO AWESOME I LOOOOOOOOVEEEEEE YOU SOOOOO MUCH!!! <3 <3:):)!!!!!!!:)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Could.
Not.
Do it.

So you know what came to mind?

"Tell Jesus three things you appreciate about Him."

...

That he was angry.

That he withdrew.

That he wept.

Man, that is the kind of guy I can appreciate. That’s the kind of guy I can RELATE to.

Thank you Jesus.
