Jesus is on the other side of the wall

Wednesday January 9th, Ephesians 3: 9 God, who created everything, wanted me to help everyone understand the mysterious plan that had always been hidden in his mind. 10 Then God would use the church to show the powers and authorities in the spiritual world that he has many different kinds of wisdom. This mystery, this good news that seems to be hidden is this: the good news is given to the Gentiles as well as the Jews, in other words, to all people. What this means is that every time we draw a line, build a wall or fence, dream up some sort of axis of evil, start a war or kill someone, we are doing it to God. I heard of a seminary professor who one day as the class entered the room handed everyone a piece of paper. On that paper he had them draw a caricature of someone they disliked intensely or perhaps even hated. When they were done he had them tape the pictures to bulletin board covered with white paper. Everyone was given a chance to throw three darts at the bulletin board with the pictures on it. Some in the beginning threw softly, but as time went on it almost became a game to see who could throw the hardest and inflict the most damage. When everyone was done, the professor removed the darts, and tore off the white paper from the bulletin board. Underneath was a large picture of Christ, ripped and torn with the violence of the thrown darts.
