I Can Fix That

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
Colossians 2:6, 7

Plop, plop fell the rain from the ceiling of the one-room schoolhouse to the waiting bucket below. The exasperated teacher, Kate, sighed as she surveyed the ceiling.

“I can fix that.”

Kate turned to see Sam, a local man who sold his home-grown onions and peaches to the townspeople.

True to his word, Sam promptly repaired the leaking roof. “Is there anything else?’’ Sam asked.

Glancing across the room, Kate replied that the window sometimes sticks.

“I can fix that,” Sam answered.

As Kate taught the school children and Sam sanded the window frame, their eyes met and they exchanged friendly smiles.

Sam continued mending whatever was broken in the schoolhouse.

One day while storms raged outside - as well as inside - of Kate, her tears dropped upon the open book beneath.

“I can fix that,” Sam gently said as he curled his strong fingers around Kate’s hand. She looked into Sam’s waiting eyes. She knew she had found true love.

This storyline from the movie Holes parallels our relationship with Jesus.

Our journey begins as we hear of Christ’s love and forgiveness. Once we received Christ Jesus as Lord, we no longer just know about him. We now have a living, personal relationship with him.

As we continue to live [our] lives in him, he starts fixing the broken areas of our lives.

Much like a plant, we become rooted and built up in him when he proves his faithfulness to us again and again.
We continue to be strengthened in the faith as we let Jesus heal us of our deepest and longest hidden hurts.

I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ (Ephesians 3:17, 18).
