These Are Written

I have cried my way through this video so many times. The message. The music and lyrics. The artwork. Wow! Although I don’t have cancer as the character in the video does, I can relate to the losses and fears that come with physical illness and disability.

This video starts by pointing out that Jesus comes to us while we are dirty and supposedly beyond the reach of Someone so perfect. However, in His love, Jesus ate with sinners and washed the dirty feet of the disciples after they had walked dusty roads. He had mercy on the lame and blind, healing them to show His miraculous power. These things are documented in the Bible for the purpose of helping us to believe that He is powerful, wise, and loving enough to die to pay for our sins.

Having accepted the gift of His sacrifice for my sins, I know that I can turn to Him for help in this life. When I have sufferings that I am afraid to face, He speaks peace to me as He does for the video character.

Although I do not yet see that final tidal wave approaching, I know that when it does, He will hold me and calm the crashing waves. In Christ, death is dead.

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies.” John 11:25

Therefore many other signs Jesus also performed in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; but these have been written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name.
John 20:30-31
