There are no situations or circumstances in the world right now that wouldn’t be helped by a whole lot of Jesus. I don’t mean we need more church or more worship music. I don’t mean we need a revival or more religion or evangelism or fundamentalism. I don’t mean the Jesus invoked by some or rejected by others.
Who we need is the man who is the Son of God. The Jesus we need is the Prince of Peace. He didn’t come to judge the world, but to save the world. He warned us not to condemn so that we would not be condemned. The Jesus I’m talking about encourages us to love God and to love each other; to treat each other in the way that we would like to be treated. He told us to forgive, so that we would receive forgiveness. He blessed the merciful and exemplifies justice and mercy and faithfulness.
This Man is a raconteur and asks more questions than He gives answers. He is a true, righteous, faithful friend. Jesus is the Light of the World and in Him there is no darkness. He is the Rock that we can stand on when there’s shifting sand all around. And Jesus is our Shelter from the storm. He is our Help and our Salvation.
What the world needs now is Love, Sweet Love. And that is exactly what Jesus is: Love. We who know Him need to represent Him well right now, by exhibiting all of His qualities to our fullest. After all, He is our Good Shepherd and we should follow Him and His voice. Peace unto you.
