Jesus is the Same

Cuba always inspires me, in many ways. Today I thought I would share something I wrote as I was flying home from my last trip:

Jesus is the same whether you make $12 per hour in the USA or $12 a month in Cuba. Jesus is the same if you are communist, socialist, or capitalist. Jesus is the same if your skin color is chalk or chocolate.

Jesus is the same whether your health is excellent, poor, or somewhere in-between. He is the same regardless of your gender or your nationality. He is the same whether you look attractive at the beach or not, whether you have a college degree or not, whether you have a loving family or not.

Jesus is the same if you are coasting along or if you are hanging on for dear life. Your heritage and credentials do not impress Him and your addictions and imperfections do not deter Him.

He does not care where you were born, just that you be born again. Regardless of your success, failure, confidence, or fear, you are on the earth because of Jesus, by Jesus, and for Jesus. Jesus is the same for everyone, but if you give your life to him you will never be.

“your Father who is in heaven . . . causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.” (Matthew 5:45, NASB)
