What are you struggling with right now?
A little boy sits staring at a framed picture of his father, who has been away on military duty for some time now. The boy begins to cry, and his mother, seeing that he is upset, asks, “What’s wrong?" "I want daddy to come out of the frame," he says.
Have you ever felt like that in your relationship with God, like He’s disconnected from the situations of your life and you want Him to come out of the frame?
Well in the Lord Jesus Christ, that’s exactly what God has done. When Jesus took on human flesh, God stepped out of the frame and dwelled among us. In The Difference Jesus Makes, Pastor H.B. Charles Jr. walks us through stories found in the Gospel of Mark to highlight the truth that Jesus is present in all things and Lord over all things, including the details of our lives.
No matter what we are facing, we can trust Jesus to care for us, even if he doesn’t fix our every problem. The Difference Jesus Makes shows us who Jesus is, why we can trust Him, and what that looks like day to day.
