If Jesus was walking the earth today, I bet He would love to engage in the “photobombing” craze. In case you’re not familiar with photobombing, it describes the practice of unexpectedly inserting yourself into someone else’s photo.
Of course, Jesus didn’t have to wait until any modern fad to start photobombing people. He has been inserting Himself unexpectedly into people’s stories and pictures for millennia. And He does so with great delight.
I’m not sure why we’re so surprised when Jesus photobombs us. After all, He promised to do so (Deuteronomy 31:6, Joshua 1:5, Matthew 28:20, Hebrews 13:5-6).
Jesus was the original photobomber. When people throughout history least expected, He inserted Himself into the frame of their picture.
No matter what you may be going through today, remember that you are not alone. Whether you’re dealing with an illness, the loss of a loved one, a financial setback, a broken relationship, or a bout of depression, you can count on Jesus to insert Himself into your picture.
Although the pain may be great, you might as well smile as the picture is taken. Your photo could even go viral as people around you see that Jesus was there all along.
But don’t let Him just remain in the background. He wants to embrace you, celebrate with you, and wipe away every tear from your eyes. When you invite Him to the forefront of your picture, your story is bound to change.
