John 21:25 (KJV) 25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.
We are filled with hope; we live by faith; we know we have our Lord’s continuous companionship. He never ever leaves us, forsakes us, or abandons us; He never walks away from us. He’s very much “hands-on” involved in our lives. There are those who believe in God’s existence, in God’s past works, but not in present divine involvements and intervention. They face life’s challenges believing that they’re struggling through them alone.
I pray that the eyes of their hearts and their spirits may open to the truth that our Lord Jesus loves us. He is an ever-present lover. Love’s expressions are loving actions. Our Lord has acted so much because of love; He’s still doing much, and will do so ‘til forever. How much? People ask. Well, to start with, He created everything; He put the stars in place; He keeps the planets in their course; He stretches out the heavens.
He gave us the power to pro-create; He broke-open mighty waters; He subdued kingdoms; He’s the “glue” that keeps everything together so that we don’t disintegrate; He opens blind eyes, makes the lame walk, the mute speak, the deaf hear, the demon-possessed delivered, the captives free. While we were still sinners, He offered His body to “cat-o-nine-tails”-whippings and beatings from super-strong Roman soldiers, and finally to three nails and a cross. And there’s so much more. You may say, “You didn’t mention this and that, and this and that…” That’s so true. All the libraries in the world—in fact, the whole world can’t contain all the books that would be written about Him. That’s our Jesus.
