Undercover Boss


I know some of you are aware of the t.v. series “Undercover Boss.”  It’s a show on CBS where the boss or CEO of some company decides to go undercover and find out what it’s like to work at their company from someone else’s point of view.  The show has grown in popularity due to the idea that most corporate CEO’s have no idea what middle class workers have to do in their jobs everyday.  These company bigwigs finally find out the real struggles of the little people in their organization and end up rewarding them generously for their hard work.  It’s a feel good show that really makes you believe that dedication does eventually pay off.

Did you know we have a God who’s done that too?  When Jesus came to this earth as a man, he came not only to seek and save the lost (Luke 19:10), and not only to die to save us from sin (Romans 5:8), but he also came so that we could follow his example.  He “emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men” (Philippians 2:7).  Jesus became the definition of humility, giving up his place in heaven (Philippians 2:6) to be a servant to all (Matthew 20:28).

Let that sink in.  The Lord of all, the Creator of the universe, the Almighty God did all of that for us, his creation.

“For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin.”

(Hebrews 4:15)

Because God has walked in our shoes and been where we’ve been, he understands our every need and concern.  He sits on his throne in majesty but he’s felt the sting of temptation.  He is glorified for all eternity and yet was humiliated on the cross. Why?  Because he loves us.

While we were still sinners, he loved us.  While we focus on the world, he loves us.  Whether we proclaim him or deny him, he still loves us.  That’s the kind of Lord and Master I wasn’t to serve.  How about you?

      Thank you. I’ve been touched so much by Jesus’ style of preaching in parables that make things applicable to our life that when I write, I want to use parables and analogies so that maybe others will be able to make a connection to the word of God.

  1. I thank God everyday for giving his Son to die for me. It amazes me that most of the people on this earth never give God a single thought or a single moment of their time. God and Jesus certainly are more worthy of praise than Undercover Boss. Good post Joe.

      That’s right. And Satan just loves to keep our minds focused on other things in life so we have no time left to meditate on God and his love.

      It’s a feel good show. It’s nice to see when the bigwigs at a company actually recognize the little people who make the place run.
