Jesus Is for Me

Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me, because I live, you also will live. On that day, you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.  John 14:19–20 NIV

Jesus is for meWhen my sister and I were quite young, my grandma gathered us and our cousins around her pipe organ. There, we gazed at Grandma’s loving hands, teaching us hymns to worship Jesus. “Yes, Jesus is for me,” I thought as I marched home in my Sunday best to be a little Christian soldier.

Now, in my later years, I reflect on Jesus with me. I read His words in John’s gospel. In my heart, this teaching gives perfect advice for me or anyone experiencing tough times. Jesus is with me and for me.

The world does not revolve around any individual or our striving. Anyone can face uncertainty. But God will show each of us a path, sometimes unexpectedly, just as He did for Jesus two thousand years ago.

We are all born to be healed by Jesus’ loving hands as we heed His lessons. In our daily prayers, we can hope to follow His light and share in His grace.

I intend to pray for the inner peace of everyone. I hope you will do the same. As my grandma taught her young Christian soldiers, Jesus is for us.  

What are some ways you can show others that Jesus is for them?
