About Jesus

Jesus came to me in a dream last night. He said I should tell people about him. Those weren't his exact words. Give me a break I was half asleep, I wasn't taking notes. So far, I haven't done a good job.

I told my niece and nephew. I hope they listened. I drove past some people with car troubles, but I didn't stop. I should have stopped, because by the time I turned around they had left their car. I drove past a guy who was washing himself in a puddle on the sidewalk under the overpass. I thought to myself, "I'll get him a cold drink." But he wasn't there when I got back. You guys, I'm pretty bad at this.

Let's talk about Jesus. Why did he appear to me in a dream? I'm probably the worst person for this job. When I talk I confuse people. As I write this I am praying I don't confuse people. You should pray that you understand me as you read this. If we all do that, then the Holy Spirit will help us understand.

It is important we understand Jesus. He is the best. We are rather stinky and lame. But he is awesome and good. If we understand him, we can be more like him. That will make us better. Eventually, he will make us perfect like himself. But only if we ask him to. He won't do it if we think we are fine just the way we are. He won't do it if we don't think he has shown us how to be. The Bible says

Ask, and it will be given to you.
Search, and you will find.
Knock, and the door will be opened to you.
Everyone who asks will receive.
The one who searches will find.
The door will be opened to the one who knocks.
Matthew 7:7-8 NIRV

This is a promise from Jesus. If we believe in his promises, that means we have faith. If you want to find out about Jesus and his promises, you should read the Bible. This is also how you will find out if I'm telling the truth. Believe the Bible, because it is true. If you don't understand the Bible, hopefully I can explain it to you. It is better if you ask Jesus to explain it to you. It can be easy to ignore Jesus, since he hasn't come back yet. Maybe it's easy to ignore me, but I hope you will listen.
