Jordan For Jesus #017 "Everyday (All I Need Is Jesus)" (Thursday Series) by Jordan Elizabeth on 2014-07-03 12:33:02
Most heroes wear capes, but my hero is extraordinary. He wore a cross, and what He did to save the world was beyond heroic. My hero will forever be my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Jesus is more than a hero. He is a Savior, Redeemer, Deliverer, and so much more. Jesus is more than everything, and He is all we need. He is sufficient for our every need. The world and all that it contains can never be everything to us the way that Jesus is. Without Jesus, we are nothing, and we can do nothing.
Everyone on earth was once lost in darkness and in sin in desperate need of a Savior. God knew this so He sent Jesus to save the world. Without salvation, through Jesus Christ, we cannot experience a relationship with Christ or spend eternity with God in heaven. Everyone needs Jesus. Everyone needs a Savior. We who have been saved, by Jesus, need to spread the gospel to reach those who do not know Him.
Jesus is the only answer, message, truth, declaration, and proclamation. He is the good news, the gospel. Jesus didn't so willingly and so freely give Himself to us so that we could keep Him to ourselves. He is not a secret to be kept. We are to share Him with the world. This is how the lost souls of this world are found and the Kingdom of God is advanced for God and His glory alone.
"And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4:19)
"For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whosoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16)
"This is how we know what real/true love is; Jesus gave up His life for us." (1 John 3:16)
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.
