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.

Trust is a gift we give someone who has earned the right to ask for it. It’s the bond between two people who have a history between them. Trust is hard-won and easily lost.
Slightly Obsessed #204: A Portrait of Faith: An Obedient Heart
Is it really so important to know and obey God's Word if we're already saved? Isn't worrying about obedience just a form of legalism? Don't we live in the age of grace?
Slightly Obsessed #203: God Doesn’t Need Our Thanks
If we were to walk through an open door to heaven as the apostle John did in a vision during his imprisonment on Patmos, we would not find a forlorn father awaiting a phone call from his children, but a royal residence filled with glory.
Slightly Obsessed #202: A Portrait of Faith: Living to Please God
The Scriptures tell us that it is impossible to please God without faith. But how does pleasing God present evidence of our faith to a dying world?
Slightly Obsessed #201: A Portrait of Faith: Thirsty
The Bible assures us that our faith is the evidence of an unseen world and its promises. But faith is not just belief. It is the expression of our belief before God and man.
So then, what does faith look like?
