One of the television shows I enjoy watching is Undercover Boss. My favorite thing is finding the gold in people, so when these bosses of major corporations go undercover in order to learn more about their company and changes they need to make for more profit, what they find is people. For an owner of a company, profit/loss margins are always on their mind, but when these bosses go undercover they discover real people with real needs. Then at the end of the show, they reveal themselves to the employees they engaged with during the show and end up giving those employees promotions, education, money, something the boss learned they needed. I love the reaction of the employees when they learn it was their boss they were working with unbeknownst to them and how shocked they are that their boss blessed them in the way they did. It’s a great show if you have never seen it.
This morning in prayer, the Lord showed me that He is an undercover boss. Jesus Christ, king of all creation, Lord of the earth, who was, who is and who forever will be God, became an undercover boss. Jesus Christ, God, put on flesh, but He never took off His divinity. He went undercover and came to earth to see what He could do to make life on earth better for us. He walked this earth as a man, He talked to people, He sat in synagogues, He went to weddings and funerals all as an undercover boss. But He didn’t stop there, He even died on a cross as an undercover boss. This is still a mystery to the Jews and is packed with truth we do not fully comprehed. He never ceased being God, in all of it. Then He rose from the dead and was taken up in a cloud, still as God.
Our undercover boss, Jesus Christ, didn’t come to earth to find out everything we are doing wrong, He came to interact with us as people. Hebrews 4:15 says, “For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin.” He came, He saw and when He left He gave us gifts to bless us (Ephesians 4:8-12). To many Jesus is still not recognizable as God who came in the flesh, to others He is still not treated as boss, but He is still speaking, still moving, still revealing that He is God, for He is still an undercover boss, but now He is manifesting Himself as such.
