I’m With Jesus

I can’t imagine a greater complement than someone taking note that I’ve “been with Jesus”. Jesus has so radically transformed my life that those who knew me before I came to faith in Christ don’t recognize me. Not because of anything I’ve done but because of the grace, mercy, and transforming power of God.

 

What do people know about you? Do they know that you live a life of surrender to the God of creation? Do they sense His love, grace, and truth in what you do and say? If you were the only Christian someone ever knew, would they know Jesus? Simply put: do people know you’ve been with Jesus?

 

If not… it’s time to make some prayerful, intentional, Holy Spirit inspired changes.

Jesus is Greater

† > everything else.

 

If you didn’t understand from that simple statement let me put it this way: nothing is more important than knowing Jesus Christ as Lord of your life. Think of it this way… the world is a dark place. Jesus is the light. When the Light comes in, the darkness fades away and you can see, live and love the way you were created to.

 

If you don’t know the love of Jesus tonight, you are only seeing and experiencing a small fraction of what you should be. Tonight you can be forgiven and free… in God’s love through faith alone in Christ alone, plus nothing.

Mercy and Grace

Because Jesus, God incarnate, was fully human and experienced all the temptations, pain, and struggles of life we know He understands our struggle. Although fully human Jesus was also fully God so He was totally without sin so He could pay the price for our sin. Today it is this God who is calling you into His presence to find mercy and grace to help in your deepest times of need.

For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
