What would Jesus do? #2

What would Jesus do after hearing about this shooting in Texas? First of all, I think He would pray for all of the people involved. There was one scene in the media where three people were praying together. We don’t know who they were or what they were praying for but it is the epitome of Christianity, and the first thing we should do when some crisis or tragedy comes into our lives. In Matthew 17 Jesus prayed that the Father would help his followers experience perfect unity and the world will know He sent Jesus.

Second, He would and comforted everyone there with hugs, a pat on the back, or a word of encouragement. Then Jesus would have served the people in practical ways by making phone calls, making meals, driving people places who are in no condition to drive because of emotions or physical problems, visiting the victims in the hospital and many other things I can’t think of, I’m sure.

In addition, Jesus would be helping the law enforcement officers, nurses, and doctors do their jobs. And He would have been compassionate and filled with love and kindness doing all of it.

Life will never be perfect

My seventeen year old daughter was in an accident two days ago. As a parent your first reaction is always panic when you get that phone call. To make matters worse, we had driven to the coast, which is an hour away so we weren’t near the scene and had to find out what was going on only via telephone (praise God for technology right?!) We finally arrived at the hospital and were relieved to see that she only had a few cuts from broken glass and bruises on her arm from the impact. God was watching over her because it could have been much worse.

A friend and I were just commenting the other day that life is never calm and easy. We just have to keep relying on God to get us through things that come our way. “In this world you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

So life may not be perfect, (after all, if it were, then we would already be in Heaven) but we have a loving God who has a plan that will show us a way to have a joyful and fulfilling life. Pray and ask Him what He wants you to do.
