Is Jesus still here?

Robertson finds Baby Jesus in ashes

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.
