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)
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 as 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.
Slightly Obsessed #218: When the Hedge Comes Down, Part 2
The book of Job is one of the few glimpses given mankind behind the veil into the interaction between God and his created beings. And the revelation is an astounding one. Not only is Satan not in hell, he has access to both heaven and earth.
Slightly Obsessed #217: When the Hedge Comes Down
When we are in the fire, it’s easy to ask God, “Why?” It doesn’t hurt to ask that question, to examine our own hearts. If we can find no explanation for the trial, it’s possible that another drama is being played out behind the scenes.
Slightly Obsessed #216: Daddy Has You
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.
