Jordan For Jesus #006 "Unstoppable" (Thursday Series) by Jordan Elizabeth on 2014-03-27 07:21:19
Jesus so willingly gave everything for us, including His life, on the cross. Because Jesus has so willingly given us everything, even though we are so undeserving, I believe that Jesus is more than worthy and more than deserving of everything. He deserves everything we can give Him and more. He doesn't deserve it only because He gave us everything, even though we were so undeserving, but just because He is God.
Jesus doesn't need what we have, but because He knew that He was sufficient for our every need, He gave Himself to us. God isn't needy, but we are a very needy people, and God is more than all we need. Although anything that we could ever give to Him would never ever be enough, to Jesus it is enough. Jesus is more than everything, and He gave Himself to us because He loves us.
That is true love! God isn't deserving of half of our life! He is more than worthy and more than deserving of one hundred percent of us! He is more than worthy and more than deserving of our life, heart, and who we are completely. He deserves our all!
Slightly Obsessed #224: When the Pressure Feels Too Great
The fig I found in a local big box store had already been trimmed into a lovely miniature tree with an unusual trunk. Little did I understand what it takes to train a plant into a bonsai, and what that process would teach me about God.
Slightly Obsessed #223: Right Clothes, Wrong Spirit
Satan seeks to deceive us, divide us, and destroy us. His bag of tricks and sleight of hand are impressive but imaginary trapdoors to disillusionment. He constantly roams the earth in an insatiable search for humans to devour.
Slightly Obsessed #222: The Rain
Like the grass, the human heart has shallow roots and fades quickly in the dry season. But those shallow roots also are the first to taste the rain.
Slightly Obsessed #221: Are You Green and Sappy?
Being described as either green or sappy is not usually considered to be a compliment. But Irma lay claim to both, and it was her secret to a bountiful life.
Slightly Obsessed #220: We Only Have One Job
The Martha in us makes everything so hard, when the Lord is calling us to be Mary, running toward the sound of His voice; sitting in stillness at His feet; not wasting a moment of our time with Him in distracted busyness. Simply clinging to His every word.
Slightly Obsessed #219: When the Hedge Comes Down, Part 3
Job's soul had been stripped completely down to the dirt. His friends accused him; he defended himself vigorously. Lost in the cacophony was the voice of God. No one seemed to notice.
Except for one.
