Jesus cares about the littlest need…

It was the mid-1980’s.  I was a brand new Christian.  I had been invited to go to a bible study group of those in their late teens and early twentys.  The study was being led by two Bible college students.  I felt very insecure,  I would not measure up to these knowledgeable and experienced Christians.  I desperately wanted them to know that I too, really was a Christian.

In the Bible Study a question came up, and the answer someone said was: “because David didn’t know Jesus.”  I said he did know Jesus and referenced this verse:

Jesus asked the crowd who’s son the Messiah was.  They said, the son of David.  Jesus said, Why then did David call him Lord? For he says, The LORD said to my Lord, sit at my right hand until I have made your enemies your footstool.  Jesus asked, If David calls him Lord, how can he be his son?
Matthew 22: 41-46

Jesus cared about a brand new Christian and gave me what I needed to feel as though I measured up in the eyes of others.

Several years later I was at the Willow Creek Global Leadership Summit Satellite Site lunch at our church.  I was being constantly, strongly attacked by satan.  He was saying, that I did not belong there, I wasn’t a leader, etc.  God helped me formulate a defense that I was a leader of my family and how the principles taught at the GLS applied to me in leading my family.  Immediately after I had formulated this in my mind, a young 20’s Pastor challenged me. Why was I there and how did the GLS apply to me, since I wasn’t leading anyone?

And I was able to answer him.

Jesus cared about even me, to give me an answer to share with the “real” leaders.
