Is Jesus Cold?

Is Jesus Cold?

We were driving down the road, just the two of us, when my four-year-old said out of the blue, “I hope I don’t have bad dreams tonight.”

Her statement surprised me as she hadn’t mentioned any bad dreams that morning. Before I could respond, she said, “Can you tell me all the bad things that could be in my room and then tell me how they won’t be there?”

I kept a chuckle to myself and decided her suggestion wouldn’t be very productive. Instead I told her, “Grace, Jesus is with you all the time. You know, you can pray out loud or in your head to Him anytime. If you are scared or worried, tell it to Jesus and ask Him to give you good sleep.”

She thought about that a moment and asked, “Where IS Jesus anyway?”

“He is everywhere,” I told her.

“Is He is in our car?”


“Is He in the grocery store?”


“Is He at church?”

“Yep, He’s definitely at church.”

“Is He in our house?”

“Of course He is.”

“Is He in my room when I go to sleep at night?”

“He sure is, Grace!”

“Well, good. I’m going to ask Him if He wants to get in my covers because it’s really cold tonight. I don’t want Jesus to be cold.”

I did laugh out loud that time and then told her, “I think that would be nice, Grace. I’m sure that would make Jesus happy.”

Perhaps, Jesus doesn’t need to share your electric blanket tonight, but I bet there is someone who does.

Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me. Matthew 25:40 NIV
