Jordan For Jesus #014 "Jesus Cares" (Thursday Series) by Jordan Elizabeth on 2014-06-12 11:19:01
Jesus is the change and the difference this world desperately needs. He came to save the world because He cares. If Jesus didn't care, He wouldn't have come to the earth to give up His one and only life for the world although the world was so undeserving. Jesus cares to understand and know every feeling you've ever felt, every thought you have ever thought and everything you have ever been through. Jesus cared to give up His life for you. When you think no one else understands your pain, just remember all of Jesus' suffering. I don't know about everyone else, but I'm not afraid to care about others, because I want to be like Jesus.
I want to care for others and especially those who don't care for me. Those who don't care the most are the ones who need someone to show they care for them the most. We need to be showing Jesus in every way. It's so much better to choose to see the good in others rather than only seeing the bad. It's better to focus on Jesus! I don't care what people think about me, but I do care about how Jesus is seen in and through me, and I definitely care what Jesus thinks.
You should too! Why? The reason is because God created you.We wouldn't be on this earth if it weren't for God. You Exist because God cares. It isn't the other way around. God cared to create you, give you life, a heart beat, air to breathe, and so many other things. God truly cares about us. Isn't it great that in a world so cold and uncaring, we have a God who cares. If you ever feel like no one cares for you, cast your cares upon the Lord for He cares for you. Run into the arms of the one who loves, adores and accepts you.
He is the answer, the truth and the Redeemer. He is everything and all that you need. He handles our lives with great care. God cares so much He knows the very number of hairs on your head, He knows the thoughts you think, the motives of your heart, and He is already standing in the future of your life. God cares so much He sent His one and only Son to give His only life as a ransom for many. He is your advocate even when you don't care. He is always caring for us in one way or another and He loves to show us that in many ways through our relationship with Him.
In the book of Revelations, the Bible talks about how in the last days the hearts of people would grow cold and they would become hardened. The darker the world becomes, the brighter those who truly follow Jesus Christ will shine. Jesus is the difference, and He is the light inside of us that we shine. Because of Christ, we have been set apart. We care, because Jesus cares. We are fearless, because we fear God. Our God is greater than anything and everything.
He has overcome and conquered fear. Fear belongs to the night, and it is not who we are. We are children of the light. We belong to Jesus the light of the world. We are children of God. The difference is Jesus!
