Jesus Is The Answer – But What Is The Question? It’s All About Him Jesus
by Darrell Creswell
Questions can come in a variety of forms. Life is complex to the mortal observer, but it becomes simple in the eyes of the Divine.
Are there real questions to which the blood of Christ Jesus offers an answer and a solution?
Marriage, affliction, hope, sin, loss, depression, pain, stress, love, employment, troubles, fear and faith are but a few of the things we question God about looking for answers. Is Jesus the end all to be all for our solution? YES HE IS!
Let’s use the example of our car. In order to find answers and solutions to the things we encounter, we must let Jesus take the wheel and drive us in the journey before us. As long as we control the car, He cannot take us where we need to be; protect us from oncoming traffic, or keep us from making a wrong turn. If we are at the steering wheel, we are in control of our own fate; while leaving Jesus sitting in the back seat. We cannot reduce our Lord to a backseat driver looking at a map for directions; He must be in control of our destiny.
It does not matter if one has been a Christian for 5 minutes or 50 years, we never grow to the point that we can take control of our lives, thinking that we have all the answers. The answers and solutions to the journey before us remains in the Master’s care, and in our total submission to His will.
Many times in our quest for answers we turn to our friends and family looking for human approval and validation as we search for answers. We must tear away from our consciousness the need for human justification and let God reveal Himself to us. We receive our justification in His grace, and all the questions we need solutions for pale in comparison to Him. In his death and resurrection, Jesus Christ provided the answer to every question that we would ever have.
We must put our focus on Him and Him alone, saturating ourselves in His word for the answers to all the questions that clutter our minds and weigh us down. As we let His word come alive in us we will realize that the Bible is full of answers; not about the questions of the redeemed, but about the answers of our Redeemer. The focus in His word is not about us, even though the body of work in salvation by Christ was for us – it is all about Him.
The ability of God to give us answers and solutions for our life is far greater than our ability to mess things up, as we tend to make a tragedy of our own circumstances. Pursuit of answers outside God is foolishness; we must submit ourselves to His divine wisdom to relieve the weight and burden of the questions that invade our mind and soul. If we look to ourselves for the answers, we will suffer – we must look to Him, as He already suffered for us. The answers came at Calvary as God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him would not be lost but have eternal life. Don’t find yourself lost and off track looking for answers in life, let Jesus take the wheel to get you where you need to be going.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Mark 10:27 Jesus said, With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”
