Day 12: Spiritual Food in Quarantine
“Who do you say I am?”
Someone in our Bible study long ago asked whether a person in a coma who has no ability to speak can be saved, considering the verse, “if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord … you will be saved.” It was ridiculously dogmatic and stemmed from a familiar misunderstanding of the word “saved” as synonymous to “going to heaven” and the role of Jesus as the passport. The Bible uses the word “saved” to mean physical healing, rescue from a present danger, deliverance from the world’s perversion, coming to the knowledge of the truth, etc. Ultimately, though, it means renewal of life toward its fullness as God intended. Jesus is Savior in that He is and shows the way to that fullness.
Who do people say Jesus is? I pray you find Him to be the Way, the Truth, and the Life, Whom we apprehend not just intellectually with the mind but experientially with the heart. And that it manifests through you especially at this time when the world needs serious saving from anxiety and hopelessness.
