Jesus as Dump Truck Driver

Jesus as Dump Truck Driver

People often ask me what I do. I usually give a weak answer instead of being gutsy and saying, “I’m trying to imitate Jesus.” So what does Jesus do? Jesus is a carpenter and “the savior of the world” (Jn 4:42). He saves the world through love.

Saving the world with love is different than saving the world with science or with stuff. Jesus could have arrived with a heavenly dump truck full of things. Instead, He arrived as an infant, and He left us still wanting and working on our problems.
