Useless God

I had heard or read the a brief comment from someone that Jesus appeared to be useless. This person wasn't a Christian and for him Jesus is pretty much useless. This morning I had a sense that many Christians think Jesus is pretty much useless in real life.

There are Professing Christians who say many of the right things. Good people. Religious people.

God saved them from their sins. That's all good. BUT, other than that he is useless. He is useless to do anything else for them.

  • Healing
  • Finance
  • Protection from Evil
  • Wisdom
  • Miracles
  • Provision
  • Peace
  • Freedom from fear
  • Understanding
  • Discernment
  • Memory of Scripture
  • Courage
  • Protection from Enemies

And a hundred other things we need in our lives that many professing Christians never look to Jesus for. They look to the world, to doctors, professionals, Psychiatrists, Professors and well you see the list. Who do you look to?

Is your God useless? Mine isn't. By the way, I challenge anyone who reads this to take the list and see if in fact the Word of God promises each and every one of these things to those who ask.

It does.

Now, how about making your Jesus a little more useful. He is Able.
