Jesus At The Bottom of The Ocean

X

Christ of the Abyss is a bronze statue of Jesus placed in 1954 at the bottom of the sea off the coast of Italy. This may be my favorite piece of art depicting Jesus.

This statue reminds me that Jesus came down into the pressurized abyss of our lives, that he moved towards the deepest, darkest, neediest places. I don’t know the unique make up of your story, sin, and mess, but whatever is down there know that Jesus’ passion is to deal with your abyss. He came to know you and love you in the deep dark sea of your struggle.

What is your abyss? Jesus goes deeper. He meets you there. He loves you there. He’s with you there. He saves you there. A deep, dark abyss is no problem for Jesus.
