the shame of it all
This txt took me off guard. Why do we only see this in the Gospel of Mark? Who could this young man be and how did he end up where he was? Too many questions. But the longer I meditate on it I think to myself this CAN be found somewhere else. I began to recall the shame and nakedness that Adam and Eve experienced when they betrayed their creator. They betrayed their Father. The shame of betrayal can ROCK someone to their core that the physical appearance of nakedness falls upon us. As if we have been exposed to the ugly truth of our lack of faithfulness to the ONE we say we love.
But this time it was not the Father being betrayed but the Son. I wonder does it truly matter if we can determine who this young man is, or if there is a deeper meaning to this two simple but riveting verses? Are these verses trying to reveal the truth about our lack of faithfulness to Jesus who we Christians proclaim to be our Savior and Lord? We proclaim to be followers of the WAY but our nation plummets deeper and deeper into a gapping hole of moral disasters. We cant even stand together and proclaim truth to a dying nation. The shame of it all!
But I thank God, for His mercies are new everyday. And everyday of new life He gives us is a chance to repent and stand for truth. Choose to remain faithful and in all things show the supreme Love of Jesus to all.
