Discover a God Who Cares!

Tony Vis

READ : Luke 4:38-44

Multitudes of people living around us are confused about who God really is. They have severe misconceptions concerning the nature of God. They think of God as distant, if they think of Him at all. They have no sense of God’s involvement in human affairs. They are spiritually handicapped and unable to experience a personal relationship with a loving God. There’s nothing really new in that. That’s the way it was in Jesus’ day and is part of the reason Jesus came to this earth. Jesus came to draw back the curtain and show us who God really is.

That’s what all these miracles are about. Jesus wasn’t trying to grab the headlines. Many times, after performing a particular miracle, Jesus would instruct those who had witnessed it to tell no one. Jesus didn’t heal the sick, raise the dead, and cast out demons to attractattention. He did those things because He cared. He acted because He was moved to compassion by the plight of the suffering. Remember, friends, Jesus was God in human form. Do you want to know about God? Look to Jesus. Do you want to know God? Get to know Jesus. For in looking to Jesus you will discover a God who cares about you…and your life will never be the same again.
