Sometimes, when we’re confronted by unexpected trouble or a deep evil in the world, we’ll say out loud, “When I get to heaven, I’m going to ask Jesus about that.” For some reason, most of us seem to think that we have to die to have a conversation with Jesus.
But the unique teaching of Christianity is our founder is alive. Yes, Jesus was crucified, but He was raised from the dead, and through His Spirit, He is present with His people.
He is present to lead.
He is present to comfort.
He is present to forgive.
He is present to listen.
And He is present to speak. He teaches. He corrects. He confronts. He explains. He’s there.
The radical teaching of Christianity is our Rabbi is alive, and He has promised that if we’ll stop long enough to give Him time in our lives, He’ll meet us and teach us to be His disciples.
So, what do you want to talk to Jesus about? Your dreams? Your hurts and disappointments? Your purpose and calling? Questions about evil? The mysteries of being? What would you talk about?
You don’t have to wait until you die to talk to Jesus. You can do it today. Right where you are. The next move is yours.
