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)
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.
Slightly Obsessed #190: A Warbird’s Lesson
On a recent hot July day, we took in an air show in our town. Vintage planes, including a couple of impressive old warbirds, sat majestically on the tarmac for inspection as we darted from wing to wing to find relief from the withering heat.
These planes are still operable, so although some of them were open for people to walk through, the cockpits were off-limits for obvious reasons. No one wanted a tragedy to happen because an unauthorized person tampered with the controls. People who don’t know what they’re doing shouldn’t be in control.
Slightly Obsessed #189: The Calling
The sound must have been a maddening echo that haunted him at first, tormented by the rooster’s crow that mocked his empty proclamation of loyalty. For three days, his faith lay in the grave with the Savior’s body, darkened by the memory of his public desertion.
Slightly Obsessed #188: Freedom
He was shouting “Freedom” as he plowed his car at twenty-one miles an hour into the granite monument engraved with the Ten Commandments.
A video posted on the suspect’s Facebook page depicted the man in his car facing the monument as a women’s voice, presumably on a car radio, asked, “Where do you go when you’re faced with adversity and trials and challenges?”
