Jesus would not center His mission in an economic crusade. He would not live merely for time or forsake the cross for bread. Jesus saw that mankind had a deeper need. Men and women’s deepest need is spiritual. We need forgiveness, we need to be justified, we need to be reconciled to God. That is what Jesus Christ came to do.
We are to have concern for our neighbors. Jesus said, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:39). Jesus is interested in social justice. But mankind’s deeper need could be met only by His death and resurrection. It would have been so simple for Jesus to avoid the cross, but then you and I would have been lost. We would be separated from God, because the only way we can be reconciled to God is through the cross. Jesus said, “Man shall not live by bread alone” (Matthew 4:4).
It is difficult for me to understand how intelligent people can spend all of their time building for this world and have no time for the future world. After this life there is eternity. This life is a preparation for eternity. You are to come to the Lord Jesus Christ, Amen!
