Anyone who has walked with Jesus for any period of time knows this journey will be sprinkled with joys and struggles. There will be times of peace along with times of turbulence. That is the way of this world. But Jesus remains in happiness and in grief. When we have Him, we can get through anything. There are times when we are on top of the world jumping for joy over His blessings. And there will be times when we cling to Him for dear life because every ounce of hope has been stripped away. Through it all Jesus is right there with us.
“He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life.” ~ 1 John 5:12
Jesus came that we may have “the life”, eternal life. His motivation was a love stronger than any other love. And His desire is for a relationship with us. He cares and wants to rejoice with us when life is good. He wants to walk with us through the deepest valleys of our journey. Sometimes, He gently lifts us into His arms when we are too weak. He never leaves because He loves us.
I don’t know where you are in your walk. I don’t know if life is gliding along with ease, or if this is the most difficult time in your life. What I do know, is that Jesus came to walk with you in this life. He will never forsake you. He will never withhold His love from you. There is no sin greater than His grace. He wants to know you, love you and care for you. He wants you to have “the life”.
Have a blessed day in the presence of the Lord.
