What’s the big deal about Jesus? This is a question I often asked myself when I was a kid and attended Church with my parents. If Jesus is so great why do I get bullied at school and he is not there to stop it? Why don’t I receive immediate answers when I pray to him? Many have asked similar questions through time.
In the Christian faith, when we have questions, we search the Bible diligently for answers; and for close to 30 years now I have been searching for answers to the question: what is the big deal about Jesus – why celebrate him?
The Bible provides this answer in Isaiah 9:6-7 (New Living Translation) –
“For a child is born to us… The government will rest on his shoulders… His government and its peace will never end. He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of his ancestor David for all eternity. The passionate commitment of the LORD of Heaven’s Armies will make this happen!”
Observing the actions of governments of the world today, it is clear that to rule with fairness and justice for all is difficult. A leader who will rule with fairness and justice for all is the biggest need of every society on earth.
The Bible teaches that Jesus will set up his own worldwide government on earth, and he will rule with fairness and justice for all, and that the “passionate commitment of the LORD of Heaven’s Armies will make this happen!”
This is a big deal about Jesus – read the Bible to learn more about this coming world government of fairness and justice; thy will be done O Lord, Amen!
