Love Does Everything Well!

For the Advent/Christmas season, each Monday’s post will look at the love that came down at Christmas. We will explore what Jesus’ love offers us and asks of us.

They were astounded beyond measure, saying, “He has done everything well; he even makes the deaf to hear and the mute to speak.” Mark7:37 NRSV

MP900399542[1]No one ever said that Jesus did the best he could. That’s because Jesus didn’t just try his best. He did everything well! That’s what is so astounding about his ministry. When faced with seemingly insurmountable problems and overwhelming odds, he delivered.

Jesus does everything well!

Just think about it. During his earthly ministry, Jesus didn’t have a 75% success rate. He healed every disease. He fixed every deaf, dumb and blind person seeking his help. He delivered those bound by spirits. He even brought back from the dead those who had died. There was no problem he shied away from, or need he left unmet.

But our needs today go beyond sick bodies and broken spirits. We need much more than a Great Physician or Strong Deliverer. We need a Savior who frees us from sin’s curse.Faith

Again, Jesus did exactly what had to be done. He didn’t just show us the way, he  made the way. He gave his own life. His broken body and spilled blood purchased our redemption. Then his resurrection paved the way for us to enjoy eternal life. He did everything well!

We don’t really need someone who tries their best. We need Jesus. He is God’s answer to every dilemma we face, every sickness we suffer, and every need we have. He is the way, the truth and the life. He does everything well!

Prayer:

Fairest Lord Jesus, you have the answers I need. You have the love I want. You give the life I long for. Let your healing, renewing and redeeming love be born anew in me today!

Amen.
