You can say “God”. You can say “the Lord”. You can say “God bless you.” Just don’t say “Jesus”. Did you ever notice what happens when someone mentions Jesus? A tension fills the room. It’s true. I wonder why that is.
I guess we don’t want to offend anyone. I suppose we don’t want to step on anyone’s toes. Maybe we want to be politically correct. Whatever the reason, I think we need to think again.
The problems of the world seem hopeless. Watching the news is depressing. Crazy people kill the innocent. Gangs rule neighborhoods. Children are abused and neglected, starving for food and love.
Jesus is the answer to the problems of the world. He is Love. He is the Healer of the brokenhearted and gives hope to the hopeless. He is rest for the weary, and peace for the anxious.
Imagine what the world would be like if everyone were a Christ-follower – If the whole world loved the Lord with all their heart and their neighbor as themselves?
Imagine a world that loves Jesus.
“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.'” Luke 10:27
