Jesus The Great Comforter! When Life is not fair!

By Greg Ryan
We see it all the time in people's lives some 
unwanted circumstance enters and life is turned 
upside down. A loss of a job, an unexpected bill, 
sickness you name it. I think we have all said at 
one time or another, "gosh, life just doesn't seem 
to be fair. It does not suppose to be this way; it 
wasn't what I had planned."

We hear about it all the time in people's lives 
someone leaves a marriage, a friend disappoints 
you when you need them the most, or someone is not 
the person you expected them to be. Our 
expectations in others sometimes just never seems 
to be met.

We experience it at times in our own lives when 
life and love come together and all we come up 
with is the absence of logic. We rack our brains 
to find some reasons or rationales for events or 
peoples behaviors only to find ourselves left with 
more confusion and frustrations.

Was life fair to Jesus? Absolutely not! Did people 
disappoint him? You bet! Did events in his life 
not make sense to him at times? Probably so! But 
through it all even up until the time of his death 
Jesus had a passion for giving people comfort in 
the midst of events, unmet expectations and times 
of no rhyme nor reason. One of the Passions Jesus 
had was he is the great comforter.
 "Come to me all 
who are heavy laden and I will give you rest." 
the bible says. Yet nowhere in the bible does he 
say that our lives will be perfect. Nowhere does 
he say others will always live up to our 
expectations, and nowhere does he say that we will 
understand it all. But what he does say all 
through out the bible is when; life, love and 
logic disappoints come to the cross and lay our 
burdens down. 

There is no other place than on our 
knees that Jesus would rather us be. It is in our 
questions of life, our disappointments of others, 
and our times of confusion where we find the most 
comforter in Jesus.

If we wait until life is 100 percent, loved ones 
are totally to our liking, and we try to 
understand everything about them both, life may 
never be lived, love may never be found and we may 
miss out on the true meaning of why Jesus died on 
the cross for us. Romans 8:28 does say, "And we 
know that all things work together for good to 
them that loves God, to them who are called 
according to his purpose." Jesus wants us to love 
life, love others and love him that is the true 
meaning of life.

This week when life isn't fair, disappoints arise 
and things don't seem to make any sense remember 
Jesus is our comforter and it's at the cross where 
he died that we can lay our burdens down.
