Sometimes Christians say things that sound super holy, but don’t have the ring of authenticity and wind up not even being all that Biblical. For instance, I always hear Christians say things like this: “Don’t go to Jesus just because you need something and He can solve your problems. Go to Jesus because He’s worthy of worship. You should want to love Him only for His glory, not to sort out your messes.” I have to be honest here and admit that this kind of statement trips my ‘whatever’ meter. Nobody worships Jesus purely for the magnification of His praise. We need Him! We need forgiveness and grace and peace and help! Jesus Himself said, “Come to me all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest.” The Apostle Peter said, “Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.” When Jesus rose from the dead, it wasn’t all about the exaltation of His glorious name. It was also about you and your little, everyday problems. Mark 16 says that women were on their way to the tomb early on Sunday morning to visit the body of Jesus and remembered on the way that there was a massive stone covering the entrance to the tomb. Bad planning on their part. How in the world were those few women supposed to move that thing? Check this: When they arrived, the stone had been moved. Who moved it? The resurrected Christ. Jesus solved the problem they didn’t even know they would have. Jesus is worthy of all your praise, but He’s also the Good Shepherd who watches over you and cares for you. Taking your problems to Jesus is Biblical, holy and good.
