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 #228: The God of the Grateful
My world had just fallen into a pit. We had a young daughter, four other children, and no insurance. I was so sick that I didn’t even know if I could get to the doctor for tests. Despair rolled over us in waves.
Then God spoke.
Slightly Obsessed #227: Release the Beautiful
As we smiled at the people we met on our walk I wondered at the social custom that requires face-to-face congeniality on a bike path among strangers who would soon be in our respective cars fighting over a lane change. It’s easier to be mad at people when we can’t see their faces.
Slightly Obsessed #226: Triune
In its most basic element, our very existence mirrors His Godhead in trinity. Each person enters time and space as three: body, soul, and spirit.
Slightly Obsessed #225: Why Lightning Doesn't Strike the Wicked
The popular radio host was on a rampage, vehemently damning God. He crowned the diatribe by flinging a challenge at God to strike him down at that very moment. He smugly interpreted heaven's silence as proof that there is no God. But what was really happening?
