Does Jesus Matter?
Have you ever found yourself in a situation and asked yourself, “how can Jesus help me?” How does Jesus matter in the moment?
I mean, faith in God is great, but how does that help when you’re trying to make ends meet? How can Jesus help when you find yourself in jail? Does Jesus really impact our everyday lives?
My answer to that last question is a resounding YES!
Jesus can help us in any situation we find ourselves in.
He always matters and is never a pat answer, even if it first sounds like one.
When Paul was in prison in Rome, he wasn’t scared of death because of Jesus.
Last year when I was in isolation because of COVID-19, I wasn’t lonely or afraid because of Jesus.
When Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were thrown into the fire-y furnace, they got their strength from Jesus.

What do I mean by that?
I mean that when the thief was on the cross and asked Jesus to remember him, he didn’t need to be miraculously set free. He didn’t need Jesus and a pardon; he just needed the good news of the Gospel. He needed Christ and Christ alone. In that moment, Jesus was the only thing that could save him. Literally.
But the same is true for us when we’re simply having a bad day. I remember one day when everything seemed to be falling apart, and God reminded me that none of it surprised Him. He was in control and could use it for good. What I needed in that moment wasn’t for things to start going my way, it was a good dose of the gospel. I needed Jesus to remind me I was His beloved child.
I don’t know what you’re going through today, but I want you to know that not only does Jesus matter, but He is enough.
