The Fixer

“Jesus answered, “I am the Way and the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

John 14:6/NIV

Many years ago, a blockbuster movie was released: “The Ghostbusters.” At that time, the movie was loaded with top-performing actors and actresses well suited for their roles. The gist of the storyline involved supernatural beings with ghost-like qualities wreaking havoc in New York City. When these ghostly beings were scaring humanity, the Ghostbusters were called. I recall memorable scenes from the movie where “who you gonna call” was uttered, and the Ghostbusters came running and took care of business!

The Ghostbusters had a reputation for fixing messes that no one else could. I suppose their nickname could have been the “fixers,” where they fixed messes that others could not. There have been many seasons in my life where I, too, felt like a “fixer.” While serving in the US Navy for many years, I was stationed at a command where I was the leader of departments where much “fine-tuning” needed to occur. I recall repeated instances where I was coming in as the new “boss” and inherited messes that needed “fixing.” I recall a very tense meeting I attended, and one of the command leaders told me: “you are the ‘fixer’ – we know you’ll figure out what to do.” When my tour ended at that duty station, my parting evaluation reflected recognition of my “fixing” many messes.

As I focused on ghostly and work-related matters that needed “fixing,” I shifted the attention to a Heavenly “fixer.” The Bible tells us mankind has a sin problem with no conceivable human remedy. All have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of God, and no one has righteousness (Romans 3:23). The wages of sin are death, but God’s gift is eternal life through Jesus Christ, our Lord (Romans 6:23). Those who repent from their sins and call upon the name of the Lord (Jesus) and believe in Him will be saved (Romans 10:13; John 3:16). If we profess with our mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord and believe in our heart God raised Him from the dead, we will be saved and have eternal life in Heaven (Romans 10:9)!

As mankind has a sin problem with no possible means of achieving righteousness, a remedy is needed. God knows that humanity is broken and in need of “fixing.” Jesus Christ told us (John 14:6) that He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and there is no way to the Father (God) and eternity in Heaven than through Him! We could view Jesus Christ as the “fixer” of our sinful mess when we repent from our sins and ask Him to be our Lord and Savior. Thank you, Father God, for your love, mercy, and kindness! Thank you, Christ Jesus, for being the Way, Truth, and Life for sinful humanity!

Many blessings to you!
