When our lives are rocked by disappointment and loss, we may wonder if Jesus is still here with us. The Bible’s answer is a resounding Yes! “Neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come . . . shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Rom. 8:38-39).
When Ted Robertson was allowed to return and sift through the ash and rubble of his home, he searched the charred remains hoping to find a precious family heirloom made by his wife — a tiny ceramic figurine of Baby Jesus. As he searched the remnants of their home, he kept wondering, “Is the baby Jesus still here?” In a corner of what used to be his garage, Ted discovered the burned remnants of their Nativity scene. The Baby Jesus figurine was undamaged.
