Lyrics for Jesus Is The Answer

Why Jesus is the answer

Jesus is the answer … a familiar phrase for many Christians. A clique which I didn’t understand for many years. How can one person be the answer to life’s many questions and challenges?

After listening to Pastor Joseph Prince explains Why Jesus Is the Answer, I am beginning to appreciate the power of the phrase. The short clip above captures is an excerpt of the sermon that makes all the difference to me. If you are interested in the full message, buy the message at iTunes.

Jesus is the answer to EVERYTHING.

He said that He is the way, the truth and the life. He said that there is only one thing needful: sit at his feet.

It’s starting to make sense:

  1. When Jesus is the answer, then the answer is not me.

Recently I was vexed by circumstances in my life. I cannot change anything about the circumstances. It is beyond me. But instead of worrying and turning the situations around and around in my head, I realized I can cast my vexations to Jesus and go to Him. When I spend time with Him, the circumstances start to change.

  1. When Jesus is the answer, then the answer is not someone else.

When I trust and rely on family and friends, they can let me down. Not all the time but there are times they are not there for me. I can’t blame them, they are busy with their own lives too. But, Jesus’ name is Immanuel, which means God with me. When I realized that, I no longer feel alone and helpless to face my challenges. Jesus is there with me.

  1. When Jesus is the answer, then the answer is not in man-made systems.

I used to read a lot of self-development books. I thought that if only I can practice what they write, I’ll be a better person. But I always fail to keep practising. I last about 2 weeks, that’s it. Now I understand that I cannot make myself better on my own or rely on man-made systems. God sees me perfect in Jesus Christ. And with Christ in me, I have the peace and power to become a better person.

After receiving the revelation, I began to appreciate this old song – Jesus is the answer by Andrae Crouch. It is an old rendition but so good.

[Chorus]
Jesus is the answer for the world today
Above Him there’s no other, Jesus is the way
Jesus is the answer for the world today
Above Him there’s no other, Jesus is the way
Jesus is the answer for the world today
Above Him there’s no other, Jesus is the way
Jesus is the answer for the world today
Above Him there’s no other, Jesus is the way

[Verse 1]
If you have some questions
In the corners of your mind
And traces of discouragement
And peace you can not find
Reflections of the old past
They seem to face you every day
There’s one thing I know for sure
That Jesus is the way

[Chorus]
Jesus is the answer for the world today
Above Him there’s no other, Jesus is the way
Jesus is the answer for the world today
Above Him there’s no other, Jesus is the way
