Kim Jong-un is dead!

In his sins, that is.  Kim Jong-un is dead in his sins, just like all of us are until renewed by the Holy Spirit and washed in the blood of Christ.  He is a sinner in need of the same grace as us.

Have you ever stopped to consider how much we truly have in common with Kim Jong-un?  We have selfish wants.  We force our own will on our situations rather than Kim Jong-un is dead - 4-8-13 - 1pursue God’s will.  We are enemies of God until we have been reconciled through the cross.  Whether you are a dictator or a dork, we are all on equal footing at the cross.

(Kim Jong-un just has a wee bit more access to nuclear weapons than we do.  Major difference.)

Jesus teaches to pray for our enemies.  Let’s do that this week.  Take a minute to pray for Kim Jong-un.  I’m pretty sure Jesus would want us to pray for Kim Jong-un’s welfare, rather than for smiting.  Right?

Pray that he comes to his senses.  Pray that he begins to desire peace.  Pray for that big ego of his to realize how much good he could do, if only he used his leadership position to make a difference in the world rather than to scare it.

Kim Jong-un is dead - 4-8-13 - 2

Also, he’s a good dancer.
