Jordan For Jesus #037 "My Delight - Joy of My Heart (All I Need Is Jesus)" by Jordan Elizabeth on 2015-02-26 10:59:41
The Bible tells us to love the Lord with all of our heart, soul, strength and mind. To love the Lord is not a feeling but rather it is a choice. It is a choice to choose Jesus instead of sin, self, and the ways of the world 24/7. It is a choice to totally and completely surrender to the Lord daily rather than anything else.
This is a choice a person should make for the Lord. To please, honor, obey, and glorify the Lord alone. It is not a choice that should be made based on people or anything else. This choice should be made based on the Lord. In the end, what a person chooses is between God and that person and no one else. So does anything else really matter anyway? The answer is no. It’s better to choose eternal joy beyond all joy over joy that runs out.
“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'…” (Luke 10:27)
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” (Mark 12:30)
As we smiled at the people we met on our walk I wondered at the social custom that requires face-to-face congeniality on a bike path among strangers who would soon be in our respective cars fighting over a lane change. It’s easier to be mad at people when we can’t see their faces.
Slightly Obsessed #226: Triune
In its most basic element, our very existence mirrors His Godhead in trinity. Each person enters time and space as three: body, soul, and spirit.
Slightly Obsessed #225: Why Lightning Doesn't Strike the Wicked
The popular radio host was on a rampage, vehemently damning God. He crowned the diatribe by flinging a challenge at God to strike him down at that very moment. He smugly interpreted heaven's silence as proof that there is no God. But what was really happening?
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.
