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)
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.
