Jordan For Jesus #025 "No Holding Back (All I Need Is Jesus)" (Thursday Series) by Jordan Elizabeth on 2014-09-11 15:02:57
As Christ-followers, it is so important that we share Jesus with the world. This is what God has called His people to do, in the Bible, in Mark 16:15 which says, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation."
By sharing Jesus with the world, we are sharing His love with others no holding back. People want to know that they are loved before the truth is shared with them.
In order to lead people to Christ, they must be shown God's infinite and eternal love. This message is the gospel, the good news. Love Himself willingly gave up His life, on the cross, to save the entire world from sin, death, destruction, hell, and darkness. I honestly believe that God wants the world to continue to reach out for Him because He wants to pour out His love on the world no holding back.
The love of God is much different than the world's kind of love. The world's kind of love is lust and lust is not love. God is love, and how Jesus so willingly gave up His life, on the cross, for the entire world is true, honest, genuine and sincere love.
No one will ever love you more than Jesus Christ and what He did, on the cross, to save the world is the proof of His love. Do not be deceived! If it is not God, it is not love. The difference between the world's love and God, who is love, is the world's love runs out. The world's love comes to an end. Therefore, the world's love is not genuine, true, sincere, or honest.
God, who is love, loves eternally. God's love never runs out, stops, or comes to an end. God's love is constant, unending, and steadfast. This is one of the many reasons why falling in love with God is one of the best things I have ever done.
Music, about God's love, is more than just a love song, it is the powerful message of the good news of Jesus Christ. It brings the message of Jesus to the lost. Because it is Jesus, we are sharing through music, its impact brings salvation, hope, life and heart change into a person's life that may not know Christ as their Lord and Savior. It revives the dead and brings healing to a person's heart. Jesus is in our music which makes it more than just music and a song. It's the heart of God. It's Jesus no holding back!
"Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love." (1 John 4:8,NIV)
"For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16)
"This is how we know what real/true love is: Jesus Christ laid down His life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters." (1 John 3:16)
"Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are My disciples." (John 13:35)
He answered, "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind'; and, 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'" (Luke 10:27)
"For the LORD is good and His love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations." (Psalm 100:5)
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.
