All About JESUS??? A Word from THE WORD!!! #48
Today I would simply like to set our focus on our soon-returning King Jesus! It’s all about Jesus–for HE is the beginning and the end, and HE gave HIS life for you and for me! It’s not just at Thanksgiving, or Christmas, or Resurrection time, or even prayer time; it’s about Jesus “ALL” the time, in every moment of every day.
“I am Alpha and Omega,
the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord,
and which was,
and which is to come,
….17 And when I saw him,
I fell at his feet as dead.
And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me,
I am the first and the last:
18 I am he that liveth,
and was dead;
and, behold, I am alive for evermore,
and have the keys
of hell and of death.” Revelation 1:8 & 17-18
Paul so powerfully told the Athenians that our God–Father, Son, and Holy Ghost–IS THE GOD!
“For in him
and have our being…” Acts 17:28a
Much like the reminder that Jesus gave the disciples just before He went to the cross.
“Abide in me,
and I in you.
As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself,
except it abide in the vine;
no more can ye,
except ye abide in me.
5 I am the vine,
ye are the branches:
He that abideth in me,
and I in him,
the same bringeth forth
for without me ye can do nothing.” John 15:4-5
Did you catch that? Jesus said clearly, “without me ye can do nothing”; yet we so often (Probably most often for some of us!) run off on our own tangents thinking “I’ve got this!”, then when we fall flat, we wonder why! Well, my dear friends, Jesus told us “why” beforehand, “without me ye can do nothing”! Oh, that we would walk in this truth–how peaceful our lives would be–not without trials and troubles, but we would know HIS peace in the midst of every storm!
“I can do all things
which strengtheneth me.” Philippians 4:13
We quote this verse so often, yet we regularly forget to walk in its powerful truth. Paul gave us another reminder which is one of my favorites–I quote it often to myself!
“Giving thanks unto the Father,
which hath made us meet
to be partakers
of the inheritance of the saints
13 Who hath delivered us
from the power of darkness,
and hath translated us
into the kingdom of his dear Son:
14 In whom we have redemption
through his blood,
even the forgiveness of sins:” Colossians 1:12-14
You see, my friends, we have been redeemed and given the power to walk victoriously over sin, and to live a life pleasing to our Lord Jesus, who is the only way to live this victorious life. For HE IS the only way to God The Father, heaven, and eternal life.
“Jesus saith unto him,
I am the way,
and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father,
but by me.” John 14:6
I pray that this brief reminder of “whom” we ought to be thankful for, and how we can walk in HIS victorious power will encourage you today! For:
“And he saith unto them,
Be not affrighted:
Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth,
which was crucified:
he is risen;
he is not here:
behold the place
where they laid him.” Mark 16:6
Praise God JESUS LIVES today! Walk in resurrection power, my friend, remembering that it’s all about JESUS!! We win!
Amen and Amen!!!
