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.
When we are in the fire, it’s easy to ask God, “Why?” It doesn’t hurt to ask that question, to examine our own hearts. If we can find no explanation for the trial, it’s possible that another drama is being played out behind the scenes.
Slightly Obsessed #216: Daddy Has You
As I sat at the red light, a pick-up pulled up beside me in the other lane. The window was rolled down, and the driver rested his arm lazily on the door ledge. A chihuahua fur baby sat perched in the crook of the driver’s arm, yapping with all its tiny might at the pickup in front of me.
Slightly Obsessed #215: Sunday School Had It Right
A Ugandan friend once told us that growing up in Sunday school, he quickly learned how to answer the Bible questions in class. “The right answer,” he said with a smile, “is always, ‘Jesus.’" As a child, no matter what question was posed in class, he always answered, “Jesus.”
Slightly Obsessed #214: Friendly Fire
In 1788, the Austrian army turned on itself and decimated its own ranks, allowing its enemy to walk in and take the city. Are we allowing the same thing to happen on the spiritual battlefield?
Slightly Obsessed #213: God of the Mountains
While life is so uncertain, one thing is: God loves us so much, and He will never abandon us. No matter what happens in the coming days, months, or years, God is in control. And He will give us the strength to overcome any trial that comes our way.
Jordan For Jesus #039: Find the GOLD in People
Find the GOLD in people. If you only see fault, error, wrongs, sins, and what is bad, in people, then you have no time to love them. You cannot judge people and love people, at the same time, which is why the Word of God instructs us to look for what is good in people. When we look for the good, in people, we are choosing to see people through the eyes of God.
