Jordan For Jesus #019 "Eternity (All I Need Is Jesus)" (Thursday Series) by Jordan Elizabeth on 2014-07-24 13:51:09
This world and everything in it is fading more each day. Soon it will all pass away because nothing lasts but Jesus. He is the only one who will be standing in the end because He is eternal which means without beginning or end.
Jesus is all that matters. The temporary trophies of this life may seem wonderful for a season but they will fade just like the world.
Jesus is the only eternal treasure. Nothing can truly satisfy the human heart but the one who created it. People are searching for something to fill the empty void within their soul.
They try to fill that empty void with many things of the world that may satisfy for a time but their satisfaction runs out because everything in the world does not last.
What people do not realize is that only Jesus can fill that empty void inside their soul. People were created by God for God alone. People were not created, destined or designed for the world.
We are live in the world but we are not of it. All of this world and everything that it contains is not worth your soul. You cannot put a price on your soul. Your soul is priceless. Only Jesus can afford the cost because He alone is more than worthy and more than deserving of all of us, everything and so much more than we can ever begin give Him.
We can't outgive God but He has outgiven us in so many ways. The least we can do is give Him our soul. You should value your soul too much to let the world destroy it. God values it above the death of His Son Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ values it above His life.
Why throw something away that is worth more than the world? It makes sense! Why gain the world and lose your soul? Is wisdom not more precious than silver and gold.
"For what does it profit you if you should gain the whole world and in return lose your soul." (Mark 8:36)
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.
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.
