Undercover Boss is a reality TV series Each episode depicts a person who has an upper-management position at a major business, deciding to go undercover as an entry-level employee to discover the faults in the company.
We have enjoyed watching how a CEO goes incognito, starts dialogues and develops relationships with rank and file employees. He learns about their life’s trials and sometimes deepest of thoughts. Sometimes, he learns of things he doesn’t want to know. At times there are employees who are not very good.
At the end of the program, the moment of truth arrives as he uncovers himself to the employee in a meeting with them. Surprise!! To those who are struggling with financial challenges or family problems that could be solved with education or other aid, he’s there to help them through. Emotional gratefulness is manifest and the story ends on a happy note.
On other occasions, a poor employee is exposed and corrected and sometimes, I believe, let go.
This series was very popular and millions watched it. The series has run eight seasons so far.
In my thoughts, I reflected on the greatest Undercover Boss of all. It was Jesus Christ.
In the first chapter of John He is identified as The Word. The Word WAS God and with God. The Word became flesh and dwelt with men. He was the ultimate Undercover Boss when He came to the earth as a human.
He mixed with mankind. He hurt for them. He healed them. He spoke to them. He truly experienced humanity that He had created. Now, He was one of them. And, He did it for a great purpose which was to redeem it from destruction and to save it.
He did finally reveal Himself to both the religious community as the I AM of the Old Testament. He revealed Himself to Pilate, the Roman authority as KING.
Jesus Christ continues to live with us in Spirit. We can relate to Him because He was human. His purpose was to connect us not only to Himself, but to God the Father.
Maybe I’ll develop this idea further….
