Ever tried to log into your favourite site and get booted out just because you can’t remember your password? Oh, yes.
Apparently, many computer users actually use the name Jesus as their password. Friends, the name Jesus is all-powerful, but in this case, it’s an easy one for hackers. Many of us are required to change our passwords frequently for work. Now that is a test of the old brain, isn’t it!
Lately, I let my computer system offer up strong passwords. I get some kind of Jibberish. I have to trust the machine to remember it because I don’t have a chance.
Remember when Jesus used a password to get access to what he needed?
Jesus sent two disciples with instructions: “Go to the village across from you. You’ll find a donkey tethered there, her colt with her. Untie her and bring them to me. If anyone asks what you’re doing, say, ‘The Master needs them!’ ” (Matthew 21:1-3, NIV)
The password was ‘The Master needs them.
It seems we have our passwords wrong on many counts. The master needs THEM! The colt came along. All our Easter pictures are incorrect. It is obvious that separating the two would create a couple of donkeys with bad attitude.
