This past Sabbath marked the conclusion of one of the most spiritually uplifting weeks of my life.  The setting: Brisbane Campmeeting’s Young Adult Tent.

On Saturday afternoon I was asked to share a few closing remarks and then have a word of prayer.  For my closing remarks I shared a video that I have seen several times before and found it quite funny.  I was debating on whether or not to show the video as the mood was relatively solemn throughout the service but then one of the tent leaders asked me, “If Jesus were sitting here would he enjoy it?” After a moment of serious consideration, my response was a resounding YES!  The Jesus that I’ve come to deeply love and admire strikes me as the type of guy who loves to laugh and have a good time, while at the same time He is deeply concerned about the internal pain of everyone He comes into contact with.

Before showing the video I stated that this video depicts how many people both in and outside of the church view Jesus.  After the video was played I challenged the audience to get to know the Jesus of the Bible and not what everyone else says about him.

If the Jesus that I’ve come to know were to have been sitting there that afternoon just outside of downtown Brisbane, Australia I believe that He would have laughed hard.  Then He would have gotten up and set the record straight!  What do you think?
