The Savior Is Calling


1 Peter 5:6-7 (KJV) “Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: {7} Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you.”

Why am I a Christian, a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, someone who has accepted Him as not just as my Savior, but also as my Lord? I am a Christian because of the last four words in our text: He careth for you. I, like you, have had many “mountaintop” experiences in life, but I have also had many “valley” experiences. We all love the mountaintop experiences and hate the valleys, yet in truth if you are in Christ the valleys are much more precious. While on the mountaintop the air is clear, the view is beautiful, the day is bright – yet, dear ones, rarely does anything live beyond a certain point on the mountaintop. Beautiful snow covered peaks are many times devoid of green trees and living creatures. The air that is clearest on the mountaintop has the least oxygen. A slight exertion on the mountaintop brings with it panting lungs and a rapidly beating heart. Whether we like it or not life is fullest in the valley – especially when you realize that He careth for you. The Savior is willing to walk by your side no matter where you travel,

“a very present help in trouble” (Psalm 46:1)

Some people use Christ like they use an ointment. While on the mountaintop they banish Christ to the medicine cabinet, but when aches and pains come they desperately seek His face. How foolish to use the “Dayspring from on High” in such a frivolous way (Luke 1:78)! The Savior careth for you. His love is greater and richer than any love found among mere mortals. He does not want to be quick relief when trials come – if you will let Him He will be a “a friend that sticketh closer than a brother” (Proverbs 18:24). Jesus wants to share His presence with you from your first waking moment till the end of day. He careth for you, waiting patiently for you to run toward His open arms. His embrace is not just for mere moments, but for all time and eternity. Jesus is tenderly calling you home, dear ones – will you not hear His call? Our text promises exaltation in due time, but you will never see exaltation if you do not draw near to Him in humility. The One Who created the heavens and earth can only bless you, making your life heaven on earth when you surrender to Him. Someone once wrote that those whom God would clothe He first must unclothe. If you expect to see the power of God revealed in your life you must first believe that He is, but second you must understand that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6). A half hearted faith is only about halfway useful when your life moves into the valleys. I would rather drive a nail with a loaf of bread, than live my life apart from a daily growing walk by faith in Christ. Come fully to Christ and be blessed, dear ones. The Savior is calling. Will you answer?

About bibleteacherorg

A searching pastor, I am looking for a people who love the Lord and love one another. I am looking for the Church. Most of what I see today is not the Church, but clubs, where members sit in padded pews and drink deeply of self. I am looking for a people willing to be righteous not self righteous, serving not served, In short, I am looking and praying for a people who want to change the world by willingly and willfully following Jesus Christ. I hope I find this people before it's too late.
