“Then Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.” Matt. 28:18

 We who believe in Jesus have received the greatest treasure that exist.  There is no one like Jesus.  His love and power transcend human understanding.  He came as a servant, not to be served.  He took our punishment and rose from the dead.  Today Jesus has all authority in heaven and on earth.

 Jesus Himself walked the earth.  He knows what it’s like to be and live here.  He knows about all the darkness, all the evil, all the perversity, all the strife, all the misery, all the hopelessness and the captivity.  Jesus is not fragile or sensitive at all.  He is the solution to the problems that people struggle with.  Jesus is professional in healing, delivering, encouraging, restoring and reconciling.

 As believers, we are not meant to keep Jesus and our faith only to ourselves, deep in our hearts.  Nor are we meant to keep Jesus to ourselves only inside the church.  As if Jesus needs to be hidden because He is too fragile and sensitive to what is going on in the world.  Jesus does not bother with all the swearing and unclean language circulating.  For He sees the hearts of men, that they cry out for a Savior and meaning of life.

 Let us go out into the world with Jesus.  Let hope and light spread, straight into the hopelessness and darkness.  Jesus is mighty to deliver and save and He loves to help people.  Jesus is the most durable of all, He is gentleness and strength united in the same person.

 God bless you.
