What is insurance?
Insurance helps you protect yourself against risks like a house fire, car accident or burglary. You can also get insurance that pays you money if you get too ill to work or to provide for your family if you die.
The only thing about insurance is that you only ever bring it out, in the case that something unforeseeable has happened.
Many People feel like they do not need Jesus anymore. As a matter of fact, in the not so distant past we shared qualitative results from a questionnaire we carried out on faith. The results were astonishing, showing high statistics of the many that felt, Jesus was irrelevant in the 21st century. Many of the participants however, said they would gladly pray in the case of an emergency.
When many were asked why they felt that way, the answer sadly enough was not shocking. Many felt the church had become a circus and therefore lost a whole generation along the show.
The sad thing about many of today’s churches is that the true gospel of the cross has left the building. Many people are taught to believe in their inner selves (New Age) teachings, forsaking Christ and only ever remembering Him in case of an emergency.
Yes, Jesus has now become Insurance. Many “Pastors” are doing a disservice to the Kingdom by being excellent sales men of the Jesus Insurance.
When we forsake the Cross and the one who died on it, unfortunately we cultivate the insurance mentality “I will only need Jesus if i’m in trouble”.
Jesus is and should be our firm foundation daily, not just when we have a need. Many of us, including “seasoned” believers have unfortunately fallen for this trap and we too have now kept this Insurance (Jesus) Card (Paperwork) in a filing cabinet and have forsaken relation with him except in that moment when we have an emergency.
Jesus should not be a missing jigsaw puzzle in our life. He should be the complete puzzle and very driving force. Stop treating Jesus like insurance and filing Him away until you are in trouble, let him be your firm foundation daily.
I pray that we will not be moved by every wind of doctrine and may our connection with Jesus Christ, be so firmly established that it truly becomes the cornerstone of our foundation and not just Insurance, in the event of an emergency.
As we approach Easter, let us reflect on why we fell in love with Jesus in the first place. Feel free to share with us, your testimony’s in the comment section.
Remember: John 3:16 New International Version (NIV)
16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
