“Jesus Loves Me”

A devotion from Pastor Ralph J. Mineo….

Charlie Brown, the well-known comic strip character, always seems to get the short end of the stick. Life is often unfair for poor Charlie Brown.

One day, he and Peppermint Patty were having a conversation. Patty was lamenting: “I need to talk to someone who knows what it’s like to feel like a fool, someone who knows what it’s like to be humiliated, someone who’s been disgraced, and degraded, someone who’s been there.”

In the final panel of the comic strip, there are no words. Charlie Brown simply had his arm around Patty’s shoulder. He’s been there. He understands.

The New Testament letter to the Hebrews teaches: “Jesus can help us in our sufferings, because of what he suffered.” Many religious leaders and average people of his day considered Jesus to be a complete fool, a blasphemer. Eventually, he was humiliated, disgraced, degraded, and crucified as a common criminal.

Jesus was always connected to the Father, even in suffering (especially in suffering). In the letter to the Hebrews, Jesus is called “the pioneer of our faith.” Not only did he endure the worst for us, he paved the way for us in dealing with suffering, by holding fast to faith.

In comparison to our sufferings, we can, with certainty, say about Jesus: he’s been there! Jesus understands.

We need never be alone in our suffering. Jesus offers a loving arm around our shoulder, no matter how bad life gets. Jesus offers grace, healing, forgiveness, love for our heart, body, mind, soul.

Do you need some comfort today? Do you someone to lean on? Do you need someone who’s been there?

If so, turn to Jesus Christ, the one who is already turning to you! You can always count on him to be there. Nothing can separate you from his love. Jesus is there right now for you!

Let us proclaim this truth every day: Jesus loves me! Jesus loves me! Jesus loves me!
