J is for Jesus
I debated with myself about doing this post because I don't want to offend anyone, but I have been through ABC Wednesday at least three times and tried to stay away from being 'religious' or controversial. But I think it's time, this week.
I hope you won't write me off as a fanatic and I hope I don't turn you off. I don't want to lose the friendship and communication I have with so many of you, my blogging friends, some of you who do not believe as I do -- and that is your privilege.
But here are three things about JESUS that are a part of me and that mean everything to me :
1. Jesus said, "I am the way the TRUTH and the life, no man comes to the Father except through me. " I love the fact that in this troubled and misguided world where we no longer know if what we read and hear is the TRUTH, Jesus says He is the TRUTH. That is my rock of stability. I may not know the truth but He does.
2. Jesus said, "I am the resurrection and the life." I have been a born again Christian for 55 years now and the closer I get to the end of my life, I find strength, comfort and joy in knowing that this life is not the end. JESUS has spent my 73 years preparing me for the BEGINNING, -- the new life I will have in heaven.
3. Jesus Christ is "the same yesterday, today and forever." It is such a blessing to me to know that God does not change. I can rely on Him. He doesn't have whims and fancies. He is Who He is, to use a modern expression. I can rely on Him to treat me righteously and fairly, to give me all that I need and more. His love for me does not change. He ALWAYS loves me even though He may not like some of the things that I do. What a joy to be loved unceasingly and unconditionally, forever.
SO THIS IS WHO JESUS IS TO ME -- IN MY OWN WORDS, THAT DON'T EVEN SCRATCH THE SURFACE OF WHAT 'BEING A CHRISTIAN' MEANS TO ME.
