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!
The Long Range Weather Forecast published by The Old Farmer’s Almanac 2017 accurately predicted a bitter winter last year, which dumped so much snow on the country that it inspired the Snowpocalypse festival in Milwaukee, Snowpocalypse survivor badges in Boise, and its own Twitter hashtag #snowmageddon. In keeping with our national compulsion to turn every personal victory or trial into a meme, we can now add -mageddon or -pocalypse to a catastrophe for an over-the-top event to post on our favorite social media outlet.
Slightly Obsessed #194 Heaven Is Calling: More than an Angel
The question is rhetorical, with God assuming the reader will understand that the answer is, “There is no angel whom the Lord has called His Son.” This passage is one meant to address the dilemma posed to the first century Christians, but it is one whom every person must answer in his own heart:
Slightly Obsessed #193: The Day America Looked Up
They came from around the world, filling motels, jamming the highways, and staking their claim on a piece of history as a rare total solar eclipse turned millions of people heavenward in the United States, a nation transfixed by the spectacle.
Slightly Obsessed #192: Heaven Is Calling: Consider Jesus
Some days we can barely hear it. Other days it drives us to our knees. But it’s always there; that persistent tug in our souls. Whether we trudge through our days or chase the stars of fame and fortune, we can’t drown out the cry that sounds silently in the pit of our being, jarring us with its urgency and moving us with its tears.
No matter what you may be going through in life, I want you to know that God's grace is sufficient for you. You may have messed up, you may have failed, you may have gone the wrong direction, you may have gossiped, or much worse, but God wants you to know that it does not define who you are. He does. He and His grace is much more powerful than anything you might have said or done. Grace always shocks. It always amazes, and it always stuns. Grace is what we all need. It's what everyone groping around lost in the darkness needs to know.
Slightly Obsessed #191: You Can Give Others the Gift of Courage
My father lay propped up in the hospital bed, his face ashen against the white sheets. My step-mother and I huddled around him in the cramped space of the progressive care unit in which he was recuperating. He had suffered three heart attacks in the space of one month. None of us had gotten much sleep in the last few days. So far, we had seen little of either the hospitalist in charge of his care or the cardiologist on staff.
