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)
Slightly Obsessed #224: When the Pressure Feels Too Great
The fig I found in a local big box store had already been trimmed into a lovely miniature tree with an unusual trunk. Little did I understand what it takes to train a plant into a bonsai, and what that process would teach me about God.
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.
