Caeser the Footnote

In Soul by Caleb

Maybe the arrogant person abusing their power in your current story will end up as a footnote in the larger story God is inviting you to live.

In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (Luke 2:1)

Caesar liked to refer to himself as the king of king and lord of lords. Ironic, as he ended up a footnote in the story of Jesus. Jesus, born in a cave with some animals to inexperienced and insecure teenaged parents. Jesus, who ignored the fame and fortune his popularity warranted. Jesus, who quietly submitted to an unjust execution to show us the extent of God’s love.

Caesar “the Great” was the historical footnote that helped to validate the stories and documents about Jesus.

Maybe the abuser is a footnote.

Maybe the abrasive boss is a footnote.

Maybe the arrogant leader is a footnote.

Maybe their power trip that forced you into an inconvenient journey is a footnote, and the journey will become your freedom.
