Don't Panic

All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life and the life was the light of men.
John 1:3-4

It's comforting to know that there is a plan.

Jesus the Creator.

Jesus the Light of the World.

He stepped into His own creation and became more than a creator. He became part of the Creation. He is the axis of all of creation. Not only that, Jesus shed light on the Ultimate Question of why we exist. Contrary to Douglas Adam's answer to the Ultimate Question in the sci-fi comedy "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy", the answer is NOT   '42'.

The answer is Jesus.

We are here because of Jesus. We are here for Jesus. We were created and exist to live lives that implement and carry out His plan.

We are living, breathing, thinking entities and were created to ask the big questions of Who am I? Why am I here?

There is something inside each of us that seeks those answers.

We were MADE through Jesus. He is the Ultimate Answer to our big questions.

In Acts 17, Paul makes the statement that " we are here in this time and in this place so that we will seek the Lord and in seeking Him find Him.... For in Him we live and move and have our being."

Our express purpose in life is to find Him. He's not far... so you don't have to search too long or too hard. He's not playing "Hide and Seek" with us. He wants us to find Him. He longs for us to reach out to Him. He's waiting with open arms.

Douglas Adams did have one good piece of advice: "DON'T PANIC!"

My advice is "Don't panic, but trust in the Lord with all your heart". The road might be a little bumpy and difficult, but the Light is always on.

Father, help me to always remember that I am here because of You and to always look to you for answers to my questions. Thank you for sending Jesus into my life. Amen.
