“Jesus se tout bagay for me”
What do people mean when they sing “I’d rather have Jesus more than everything” (I love how it sounds in Creole: “mwen pito gen Jezi pase tout bagay”)?
Do they mean any of the following ideas:
A) Jesus is more valuable than earthly treasures, fame, and goods.
B) Nothing on this earth is comparable to Jesus.
C) Jesus owns everything both in the heavens and on the earth and that what he has is also mine; therefore, Jesus is “all” sufficient and more adequate than “everything.”
D) The supremacy of Jesus Christ over “everything,” and that Jesus satisfies all earthly treasures and joys.
E) While one may posess a great deal of wealth and fame in this world, life in this world without Jesus is not that cool; it is dangerous, hopeless, and meaningless.
