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!
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.
