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.
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.
Slightly Obsessed #218: When the Hedge Comes Down, Part 2
The book of Job is one of the few glimpses given mankind behind the veil into the interaction between God and his created beings. And the revelation is an astounding one. Not only is Satan not in hell, he has access to both heaven and earth.
