It’s CRAZY

how we can sometimes mistake serving Jesus for worshipping Jesus.  There is a huge difference and we need to take note of it.  NOTE to self: Jesus looks for worshippers before He does servants.  We need to constantly remind ourselves, not just mentally, but practically as well, of just how much He loves us/what He did for us/what He now freely offers us.  

I took a walk tonight.  4 laps around the lake to be exact.  And I felt it was the LORD telling me, “I need you to spend time with ME.  I WANT to spend time with you.”  It was insane.  I told Britt that I needed to go take a walk and although it was crazy cold outside, I bundled up and headed out.  As I walked, He began ministering to me with encouragement and reminders of blessings.  He began putting people on my heart and situations that needed prayer.  I was listening to some old hymns and the lyrics were just more fuel to the fire.  It was an amazing experience and one that I won’t quickly forget.  

Somewhere along the way, I’m not sure where it occurred, I wandered away from just sitting and enjoying my Savior.  Something so basic, yet so powerful.  

I was refreshed tonight.  And things were placed in perspective and priority.  If you ever feel the LORD tugging at your heart to go do something - go do it.  

Thank You LORD, for tonight.  It was a blessing beyond words.

Thoughts about Christ’s sacrifice.

How does it even make any sense at all?  The Righteous for the Unrighteous?  Perfection for the Imperfect?  You got to be kidding me!  

To reject what Christ has done for YOU is nothing short of idiocy.  

He took YOUR punishment.  He bore YOUR sin.  His blood was spilled to make YOU clean.

—->  All for what?  

-      For you to live your life the way you think you should?  

-      For you to insist that you know what’s better for yourself?  

-NO.

——->  But to give you access to Himself.  For you to be able to inherit His everlasting life.  To share in all the riches of His goodness.  To lavish His love on YOU.  

   Let’s get over ourselves.  

   Let’s get right with Him.   

   Let’s worship Him and live a life that reflects what He came to do.




  Thank You, Lord for being an awesome Savior!  Thank You for completeing what You came to do.  Thank You for doing what I could not.  Thank You for your LOVE.

"Spiritual Leadership is not defined by the passion to rule, but by the passion to SERVE"
- J. Oswald Sanders
[Mark 10:45] - For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and give His life a ransom for many.

May we who desire complete conformity to Christ learn from His example and choose to be slave of all!

"The Earth is Yours" - Gungor

Your voice it thunders
The oaks start twisting
The forest sounds with cedars breaking
The waters see You and start their writhing
From the depths a song is rising

Now it’s rising from the ground

Holy, Holy
Holy, Holy Lord
The earth is Yours and singing
Holy, Holy
Holy, Holy Lord
The earth is Yours
The earth is Yours

Your voice it thunders
The ground is shaking
The mighty mountains now are trembling
Creation sees You
And starts composing
The fields and trees they start rejoicing.

Now it’s rising from the ground
It’s rising from the ground
Hear us crying out
Hear us crying out

Holy, Holy
Holy, Holy Lord
The earth is Yours and singing
Holy, Holy
Holy, Holy Lord
The earth is Yours
The earth is Yours
