Jordan For Jesus #018 "Everything (All I Need Is Jesus)" (Thursday Series) by Jordan Elizabeth on 2014-07-10 14:10:40
Ultimately, Jesus is the indescribable God, but Christ is also many different things to us which makes Him our everything. Jesus is our Savior, our Lord, our King and so much more!
Still, Jesus isn't just everything, He is more than everything to us. There is nothing in this world that can be everything and more than everything, at the same time, to us.
Only Jesus can do that! Only God can do that, because only the Creator can be more than everything to the things He creates. Nothing in this world can satisfy the human heart like God can.
Why? Because God, who is our Creator, created our human heart.
God put His spirit inside of Jesus and He came to this earth to save the world. Why? The world was lost in darkness and in sin. The world was desperately in need of a Savior! God knew this, and that is why He sent Jesus.
Because of what Jesus has done in my life, I want to unashamedly and undeniably proclaim to the world that Jesus is my Savior, and that He can save anyone who accepts Him as Savior also. Because I have been saved and redeemed by Jesus Christ, it is no longer I that lives but Christ lives in me. I have died to myself, the world, and my old ways.
Now God lives in and through me. Because God lives in me, instead of me, I now do things God's way instead of my way and the world's way. I have surrendered my life in humble obedience and submission to God to play a part in His story as a servant of His kingdom.
Apart from God, we have nothing, can do nothing, and we are nothing. This is the truth! In Christ, He is everything in us, and in Him, we can do all things!
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.
Slightly Obsessed #212: Believe
Sometimes it feels like just getting out of bed sets us up for defeat. But we shouldn’t be surprised. God clued us in thousands of years ago in the book of Job when He warned us that we are born for trouble as surely as sparks from a fire will fly up into the sky.
Slightly Obsessed #211: Can a Worm Fly?
Darkness is God’s secret place, where He fashions a new creation away from the prying eyes of His enemies. In the chrysalis of the closet, He plans and weaves and forms His beloved into something that will burst forth with joy at the proper season.
Slightly Obsessed #210: Arise
A few short moments taken to restore a woman to health had kept Jesus from the bedside of a girl who lay dying. Messengers arrived with the news that Jairus’ little daughter was dead, striking fear in his heart as they destroyed the hope to which he clung.
Slightly Obsessed #209: Look Up
An ancient king faced certain destruction as enemy warriors amassed before him in a surprise attack. His response is our answer for the trials that threaten to destroy us today.
