The Biblical Remix – Without U
John 6:35-69 – http://bit.ly/biblicalremixwithoutu
Jesus had just fed 5000 peeps with fish and bread the day before. You know how people are. They came back the next day looking for Him. He blew up their spot by telling them about themselves. How they didn’t care about who He was, they were just hungry and wanted more food. Dag!
Jesus then threw on his professor hat and started schooling everyone on life, on who God was, and also about who Jesus Himself was.
The peoples couldn’t take it all in. Most of them actually bounced.
Then Jesus looked at his main crew of 12 and asked them if they wanted to bounce too. The hoodrat of the crew, Peter, was like ” Yo, you got the words of real life. This is ride or die for us. We know you the one God sent to us.”
In the background this David Guetta/Usher song played:
“I am lost, I am vain, I will never be the same without you, Without you, I won’t run, I won’t fly, I will never make it by without you, Without you…”
A friend of mine shared how this song describes her relationship with God. The connection didn’t dawn on me until she said it.
The truth is I know without God my life would be in shambles. The past fourteen years has been a wonderful adventure of getting to know who God is and also getting to know who I am. Trust me, I have not arrived on either of these two. I am still walking the journey.
However I can say my life is way healthier, more enjoyable and definitely blessed. Like Peter, I have traveled this journey so far that I have come to understand no one or nothing else has the words of life like Jesus.
This Christmas is the reminder God gave mankind the gift of His Son. That Jesus, being all God, also became all man by taking on our human form and by dwelling amongst us. Eventually He would sacrifice His own life by being crucified to save us from our sin.
Do you know Jesus has a daily concern for you? Could you live without that sacrificial love being a part of your daily reality. I can only tell you his love, from my personal experience, surpasses anything the mind can try to understand. Do you really want to live without Him?
