Have you ever noticed how often Jesus partied? I mean seriously, this guy was a party animal! He goes to a wedding and supplies the wine, he hangs out with fisherman, tax-collectors, prostitutes, Samaritans… (even Samaritan women *gasp*) the list goes on and on.

Now, this in and of itself doesn’t really surprise me, it makes sense. I mean, He was lovely, so it makes sense that he would be lovely to everyone.

What does surprise me a little though, is the fact that all these people were comfortable with him around. I mean… this is Jesus. He was perfect. He was holy. Yet, the non-religious were comfortable with having him over for meals, and parties and just to hang out with.

The next thing that surprises me is how often people aren’t comfortable around Jesus’ followers.

Surely we’re doing something wrong?
