photo 17This is an interesting question; again it opens our mind to think deeply.  There are so many things we can’t do without God’s help.  Jesus said,’ nothing is impossible with God’. However, He does things according to his will.  God is aware of our wants and needs.  But sometimes we don’t get because our motives are not right.  James 4:3.

Jesus did something impossible for any other human being on earth to do, i.e. to save us, when our sins are forgiven through him and to judge other human beings in the end. The scripture says, ‘when the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his throne in heavenly glory. All nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats’. Mth. 25:31-33  God gave His Son the same power he himself possesses. That’s why what God says Jesus says the same.  When we ask Jesus to open our eyes or our minds to understand, the message goes straight to God.  That’s why He asked us to pray to the Father in his name.

We have needs from time to time.  There are times when we need to ask for God’s help.  We get his attention, when we ask through Jesus.  If any one wants to get God’s full attention they need to go through Jesus.  I love all the questions; here is another one, ‘why are you crying?’ And then he says, ‘don’t cry’.  This shows, God is willing to comfort us when we turn to him.  He desires to help us when we reach out to him, for He knows without him we are helpless.  Without God’s order of things, none of us would survive.  Imagine if He decides to stop the plants or trees’ production, that would be catastrophic to all of us.

And then Jesus asked, ‘are you in error because you don’t read the scriptures?’ – is directed at those who are a bit religious, but don’t read, examine and follow the scriptures.  To the persecutor, he asks, why are you persecuting me? – is directed at those who tell lies about him, or speak negatively about him.  He knew those who follow him in truth will be persecuted. Jesus never persecuted any one, and when he preached to draw people to God, he did it with love and kindness without any violence.

Why would anyone be persecuted just because they’re trying to be good?  Very often we hear people who are beaten up or put in prison in some countries just because they follow Jesus.  When someone follows Jesus’ teachings and acts upon them, they turn into a good person.  For Jesus says, don’t hate but show love instead. His teachings are of kindness and forgiveness.  When a blind man got Jesus’ attention, he asked him’ what do you want me to do for you?’  The man answered, ‘I want to see’. Mark 10:46-52  He was not only healed physically but spiritually as well.  This encouraging  question applies to everyone of us.  We have to come to a point in our lives when we have to say, ‘Jesus I want to see’, which means – help me to understand, I want to be saved.  For Jesus said, anyone who doesn’t understand the things of God and Jesus is spiritually blind. We learn from the blind man that using a strong faith in God is crucial in getting us where we want to be, for He has the power to turn any situation around.



This is a question God or Jesus asks any one of us.  God knows, as human beings we have a capacity to search deeper into the universe, and are always looking for something and fascinated by something bigger and stronger than us.  We long for protection because we get scared easily sometimes.  Many of us would seek God at one point in our lives, especially when things get tough, that’s why we end up praying.  For, it is in our human nature to ask for help.

Sometimes, as you know, some of us would get to a point when we start searching for some kind of inspiration, e.g. someone would look up to a celebrity, a political leader or a religious leader to follow. But when we examine them we find imperfections and we get disappointed.

And on other occasions,  we end up trusting those who are closer to us  and we get even more disappointed when they let us down.  However, if we want to get it right with God, we have to be careful about whom we follow and trust.  If a person preaches the right message according to the scriptures, Jesus is pleased.  So when he asks, who are you looking for?  He also warns us to be careful. Mathew 7:15-23

It is also in our human nature as you know, to hunger for a good leader, someone who can motivate us , hence giving us assurance that things will be fine.  Jesus had perfect qualities of a good leader. He listened to peoples’ concerns, fed the hungry, healed the sick, opened the eyes of the blind, etc.  He was the kindest person who has ever stepped on planet earth, with a purpose to save us.

He knew there would be people with a different message from his, and he said, ‘such things must happen’ Mathew 24.  He also said, ‘No one can come to the Father except through me’. John 14:6

Who is it you’re looking for? – is also applied when we start searching for who to worship.  (He knew people will be seeking God in various ways, and some will be searching for wrong gods).  The scripture says; seek God, the creator of the whole world with all your heart and you’ll find him. Jeremiah 29:11-13.  Jesus said, ‘when a man believes in me, he does not believe in me only, but in the one who sent me, and when he looks at me he sees the one who sent me’. John 12:46.  We learn from here that Jesus represented God perfectly, just as his  Father in heaven wanted.

God created Christianity through Jesus.  The scripture says, Jesus is the word of God, John 1:1-5. His teachings came straight from God.  Jesus’ teachings transforms a human being from inside out.  It touches the core of a human heart, and touches every area of our thinking.

Jesus said, ‘follow me’Math. 4:19, for he knew about God and life more than we do.  Babies are closer to God than adults, because they haven’t exercised their sin.  However, as we start our journey of life, we somehow lose our way by wrong thinking and decisions.  In Christianity Jesus is like a perfect kind hearted, loving, big brother, who’s like saying to us, hold my hand and I’ll show you the way.

So when we walk with him, we look up to him and listen. To the thief he says, don’t steal. If you hate someone he says, don’t hate, be good to them instead.  And then he says’ forgive or you will not be forgiven…Mathew 6:14-15

For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I’ll raise him/her up at the last day. John 6:40
