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)
A musty odor had been coming from the vicinity of my husband’s man-cave for months. I chalked it up to his old collection of books and memorabilia, but the real cause will force us to tear things up to get to the root of the problem and fix it.
Slightly Obsessed #232: Beyond the Veil of Tears
When trials fall upon us, our human response is to find an escape. The bigger the emotional storm, the more frantically we search for something or someone to rescue us.
Slightly Obsessed #231: Suddenly
When we feel the most lost may be the very moment we discover that someone is searching for us.
Slightly Obsessed #197: Are We Spiritual Darwinists?
Two secular scientists recently stumbled upon evidence challenging their evolutionary assumptions. Do we subconsciously doubt God's power and quietly live a similar Darwinian existence? Are we ready to be challenged to believe in His power to intervene in our lives?
Slightly Obsessed #229: When Pain Is a Good Thing
The pain takes us down and drives us to our knees. We long for relief, for a way out. But in the secret place of suffering, we discover that pain is our friend.
Slightly Obsessed #228: The God of the Grateful
My world had just fallen into a pit. We had a young daughter, four other children, and no insurance. I was so sick that I didn’t even know if I could get to the doctor for tests. Despair rolled over us in waves.
Then God spoke.
