Jordan For Jesus #007 "Unstoppable - Part 2" (Thursday Series) by Jordan Elizabeth on 2014-04-03 07:50:20
Giving Jesus your all (meaning 100%) doesn't end when you get saved. It is a lifestyle that is constantly lived out through obedience before God. It is a choice to choose Jesus each day by completely and totally surrendering to Him. This is having a relationship with Jesus Christ. Jesus said, in the Bible, that "If you truly love Me you will keep my commandments." (John 14:15).
Satan makes sin seem so right and so fun, but it isn't, and the end result is that it ultimately leads to destruction. Walking in obedience before God is hard but it is worth it because it leads to life. Although we could give everything we have and it would never be enough, God honors and rewards obedience. When we walk in obedience before God we experience His blessings and favor and we do not endure the pain of sin. Although, we shouldn't walk in obedience before God just to be rewarded. We should walk in obedience before God because we love Him.
When you are truly saved by Jesus Christ it becomes your greatest heart's desire to obey God above all else. We should give God 100%, our all, because He is our God! This life is not our own, it was given to us by God, in heaven, therefore we should honor Him with it twenty-four seven.
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?
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.
