How do we know Christ cares? Let's examine some recorded facts of Christ caring for all creation. First, He shed Himself of His glory to suffer human humiliation and limitations even to the point of death. Second, Christ came to earth for the sole purpose of providing salvation for mankind. Salvation is made possible through His shed blood on Calvary's cross, reconciling humanity back to God, the Father. The way to God is through Christ our Savior. Humanity must accept Christ as their personal Savior and believing that He is God's Son. Third, while on earth, Christ healed the sick, raised the dead, cast out demons, fed five thousand, and where there was a need He fulfilled that need without asking what pedigree. Christ displayed His love and compassion for all.
Our scripture verse, tells of Christ speaking to the raging sea "Peace be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm." Christ cares enough to calm the natural forces of nature; He will calm the raging storms of our lives. It is His desire that no soul be lost, so cast all your cares upon Him; He is able and willing; standing ready to calm all your fears, doubts, and anxieties. We must decisively give our entire problems to Christ; do we trust Christ enough to take our problems to Him in faith? I Peter 5:7 states, "Casting all your cares on Him; for he careth for you." Consider how Christ cares for the lilies of the fields, and the birds of the air; they worry not about their well being; would He care for plants and animals and not man? I think not! Remember what He done for us.
