Do you personally know Jesus? Do you have a relationship with Him?
Right now, we are in the most uncertain times of our lives. None of us have ever experienced anything like this.
We are all in unfamiliar territory.
If there was ever a time to seek God, this is it.
What is keeping you from Him? Is it the idea that God is unrelatable to how you are feeling, what you are thinking, or what you are going through?
This thought is very untrue. God is genuinely relatable to each of us.
God had a plan to send His Son, Jesus, to re-create a bridge from humankind to Himself.
Like us, God plans.
God loves like us, except His love is indescribable, limitless, unfathomable, unstoppable, unyielding, and all-encompassing.
God loved each of us so much that He gave His only son, Jesus, to come and take your place on the cross.
He gave Jesus to defeat death and the grave for each of us.
God sent Jesus to live His life as a human. God wanted first-hand knowledge of our struggles, our pain, our lives, and our experiences as humans.
The knowledge Jesus gained an as human was also shared with God.
God knows and understands all that we face.
What other God gave His only Son so that He could have a better understanding of you and your life?
Jesus has experienced everything you are facing now as He lived as a human man.
Jesus Himself faced fear. While He had the knowledge He was going to be crucified and tortured, He feared.
Jesus asked God to let this path pass some other way. He sought another way out, but there was no other way.
No other human, saint, or false god could have taken the place of Jesus on that cross.
If someone other than Jesus would have tried to take His place, it would not have carried the same effect.
No one but Jesus could have died for us! He was the lamb who was sacrificed for each one of us. He was the sacrifice to save the whole world and to cleanse all our sins.
Today, as you may be facing fear, panic, uncertainty, and doubts about how tomorrow will play out, know that you can trust in God.
He is always faithful!
Today, as we are celebrating Good Friday, take this time to seek God out.
On Sunday, we celebrate the resurrection of our one true living God, Jesus.
You may be watching at home in secret as Easter Sunday services play out.
You may be ashamed to admit that you need God, but don’t let shame hold you back from the one most important step you can make in your lifetime.
You may be embarrassed because your friends will mock you for admitting you need God.
Don’t let anyone or anything steal your free gift of salvation and everlasting life.
Today, you may be a closeted Christian, accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior in the secret of your own home. This closeted pursuit of God is fine for now, but know that there will be a point in time when God expects you to proclaim Jesus as your Lord and Savior boldly.
