I hope that means I’m not overstepping when I say I want ochocinco to be a glimpse of God’s character. Are you familiar with this ochocinco character? I LOVE HIM!
“God must love all of you, he must be proud of himself, he broke the mold with each one of you since none of us are the same. I love you”- Chad Ochocinco
His twitter account cracks me up. He refers to people as grasshopper, kind sir, bruh and so on. He starts a lot of mornings at IHOP and says he matches the total of the bill for a tip. He’s constantly telling people he loves them. When someone tweets anything to the effect of “I wish I could be friends with ochocinco in real life” he replies assuring them twitter is real life and they are friends. He challenges people to video games. He lived with fans when he first switched to the Patriots. He drives a Prius and readily explains why. He eats cheap and frequents McDonalds. He gives fun advice and tries to hook up his followers with each other.
Someone asked him his religious views on twitter and he said “Well i won’t b 1st n line 2 enter the gates of heaven but i’m going” and then another twitterer asked him who would be first. “Tebow duh” was his response.
I know ochocinco is a human. I know he’s not God anymore than Tebow is Christ. But think about it…
Wouldn’t it be cool if ochocinco was a reflection of God? I’d wanna meet God for pancakes as the rest of the world was waking up. I’d be down for video games and generosity towards waiters and letting everyone know they’re loved and reminding people that no matter what they have in their wallet, they’re not too good to eat at normal restaurants. And does it get more incarnational than moving in with fans?
