What is a "Jesus Nut"?
No… a "Jesus nut" is not that guy in the end zone with the rainbow colored hair holding a John 3:16 sign.
The "Jesus nut" is the huge bolt that holds the main rotor to the top of helicopters.It is a slang term first coined by American soldiers in Vietnam to communicate the idea that, if the Jesus nut were to fail in flight, the helicopter would fall to the ground and the only thing left for the crew to do would be to pray to Jesus!
The real ‘nut’ is the man who thinks he can keep flying without Christ being central to his life!
I have met with many men whose lives, marriages, families, and businesses are crashing because Jesus does not have first place.
The Apostle Paul may never have flown a helicopter, but he did understand the central truth that, “Christ is before all things, and in Him all things hold together…so that He Himself will come to have first place in everything.” (Col 1:17-18).
