Reason Why Jesus is Savior

Simply because the world needs saving. Jesus came to save and we need saving more so than ever. Look around the world. Yes, it’s pretty dark out there but hope springs eternal. That’s the promise and hope—always amazingly bright beyond imagination—of Jesus. Just turn to His light.

So many in this day and age think Jesus is some religious mumbo-jumbo fictitious figure. He’s not. He’s real and is your personal savior. You simply have to turn to Him. It’s that simple. Remember—life is simple. We are the ones who complicate it.

Come to me, all of you that are weary and are carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.
Matthew 11:28

Don’t ever forget that. Need rest? Need saving? Need anything? Turn to Jesus.

And have a FANTASTIC day!!!

Faith: Use It or Lose It

Faith is like vacation time at most companies: use it or lose it. If you don’t put your faith into action—real action, not just hollow words—you will lose it. And the Christian faith is built on one thing—following Christ. Not just in word but in action. Following Jesus is pretty simple since He told us what we need to do:

This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. John 15:12

Once again, pretty simply stuff. Life all comes down to that four letter word—LOVE. LOVE and you are living your faith. Everything else is just cheap talk.

Use it or lose it. LOVE!!!

Love Jesus, Love Others

When we love Jesus and we love people, we are going to make a difference and make an impact. Tim Tebow

Sorry for the Tim Tebow overdose, but he has a lot of good insight. This quote is from a recent talk he gave on unity.

God gave us one simple command in life: LOVE! The question is how well do we follow that command? Good question to evaluate your life.

Have a great rest of the weekend. Try living it in LOVE. That’s a key Secret to Life.

If You Won’t Listen to Me, Listen to Tim Tebow!

Christian athlete Tim Tebow has challenged Christians to change the world by loving Jesus and every single person they come in contact with. Read it here.

As I write all the time—LOVE!!! It’s what God commands us to do. The only thing He commands us to do.

Want to change the world? Try Love. If you won’t listen to God, or just me, listen to Tim Tebow. Great message!!!

Are You a Disciple?

If you are a true disciple following Jesus, the test is pretty simple. Do you love? That’s it. Do you love everyone around you? And this is not me talking. It’s Jesus…

By this all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another. John 13:35

Love. As the song goes, it makes the world go around. And if you are a true disciple of Jesus (it’s called being a “Christian”) you have to love. Hate and you follow someone else (hint: look down). Love and you follow Jesus.

Have a great day. And don’t forget to love!

Jesus’ Last Moments: Lifetime of Emotions

There is a lifetime of emotions in Jesus’ last 24 hours or so on this earth. He agonized in the garden about bearing the weight of the world. He felt intense physical pain as he was beaten. He was mocked and humiliated. He needed help carrying His cross. And he died. Torment, pain, humiliation, helplessness, and death. We may not feel all these emotions in our lives but I bet that most of us do at some time or another. Certainly, it’s a 100% lock that we will all eventually face death. What Jesus gives us is that hope that we can fight through emotions because he took them all on His shoulders to death. Continue reading

Less God, More Chaos

It’s pretty simple: The less God there is in this world the more chaos we see around us. As we push God out of our lives bad things happen. The world gets darker and we get lost. Wars, shootings, and downright hatred on the streets. That’s defining our world today because we choose to push God away. When you extinguish a light you are left with darkness. Simple. Continue reading

What Jesus Said About Guns

“Put your sword back into its place. For all who take the sword will perish by the sword.” Matthew 26:52

Substitute the word “sword” with “gun.” Jesus was pretty clear in what He said. And he’s speaking to us as we are perishing from guns.

Once again, pretty simple. Then again, God made life to be so very simple. We are the ones who complicate it.

God is Love—Which is Why There is Little Love in This World.

John said it best and very simply—God is love. (1 John 4:8). It could not be simpler. God is pure love—the essence of what love is. There is a reason why we find so little love in the world today. We have shut God out of our lives. Continue reading
