Jesus said, “I am the answer.”
The answer is not found in the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
The answer is found in the tree of life. The answer is found in God.
The answer is Jesus.
God is life, eternal life.
Jesus is the tree that leads to eternal life.
Jesus is the tree that leads to God.
Jesus is the way to God.
When I look all around, I find myself overwhelmed with more questions than I can keep up with.
Before I had any types of question, Jesus was already my answer.
It’s hard to face the questions. But the more I face them, the more the answer makes sense. The more I see my situation, the more Jesus makes sense.
Jesus is that constant in the equation that goes nowhere even when you multiply him by zero, zero faith that is. Because, even before I knew Him, He knew me. Before I love Him, He loved me. Before I was, He is. And because of Him, not because of my situation, but because of Him, I will always be. Because Jesus Christ lives forever, I will always be.
““Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?
“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” (Matthew 6:25-34)
