Stuck on Jesus

 

Look at us over the last week and a half. Go to our website and scroll down through the recent Catches and you’ll find they are all about Jesus.

Jesus is the answer” 8/28/20

“The truth about Jesus never gets old” 8/27/20

“It’s still all about Jesus” 8/24/20

“In the presence of the Lord” 8/21/20

Jesus unscathed” 8/20/20

“Do you know Jesus?” 8/18/20

“Looking unto Jesus” 8/17/20

We are stuck on Jesus. What a wonderful, glorious place to be! We just can’t get enough of Jesus. And why should we? What else is there we could talk about? A pandemic? An election? A tanking economy? Racism? Street protests? A fractured country? A divided House? Who’s going to buy TikTok? Yes, we can and should talk about all these things, but at the end of the day — at the end of the week, for that matter — where will we be? Will we be any closer to where we want to be? Will we be any closer to solving anything? Will we be further down the road? Or will we be stuck?

Might as well be stuck on Jesus.

Jesus is the Alpha and the Omega — the beginning and the end, and everything in between. “Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made” (John 1:3). Of course, there is His power, His omnipresence, His central place in the creation of all things, but the most overwhelming thing about Him is His love for us — His personal love for each one of us. It’s intimate, all-encompassing, unconditional, individual, irrevocable, incomprehensible, and unmistakable. He carried the cross for us; He was beaten for us; He bore our sins; He took our place of punishment; all because He loves us. He did all that, and all along He was thinking about you. He didn’t do this for some vague, general concept of the human race; He did this for each of us individually. How could He do that? How could He die for each one of us and all of us at the same time? I don’t know, but He is God; ask Him.

Believe it. Bask in it. Marvel at it. And then try … just try … to get enough of Jesus. You never will.

More about Jesus would I know,

More of His grace to others show;

More of his saving fullness see,

More of His love who died for me.

More, more about Jesus,

More, more about Jesus;

More of His saving fullness see,

More of His love who died for me.

            Eliza E. Hewitt, 1887

    Being stuck on Jesus insures peace in these troubled times.

    “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
    John 16:33

    John-I appreciate that you identified current chaotic conditions are not unlike when you did street concerts in San Jose. There is that hope, perhaps youth today will discover Jesus is the answer like the flower power generation of long ago. Thank You.
