    How Can You Resist Jesus?

    How Can You Resist Jesus?

    Have you ever wanted to have a friend who knows you completely, and loves you immensely? When you are at your worst, a friend who will not give up on you. In times of difficulty and despair, a friend who stays close and truly cares. This is Jesus.

    Although He created the heavens and the earth, He is interested in you. He always has time to listen. He is never bored with your endless conversations. Always willing to forgive, never impatient or condemning. And when you realized that you wanted to live forever and be forgiven for all your sins, He came to you and offered His life in exchange for yours. Two thousand years ago, He allowed evil men to brutalize Him and tear His body to pieces, all so that He could take the punishment for your sins, removing any chance that you would suffer judgement for them in the future.

    Just Love Him

    Just Love Him

    As a person grows in their relationship with Jesus Christ, they will increasingly desire to “do more for the Lord”. I have often heard men teach who are gifted in expounding on the Word of God and thought; “How I wish that I could have an effective ministry for Jesus like that man….”

    Then the Lord speaks to my heart and tells me; “Rob, what I want most from you is that you would just Love Me.”

    We forget that God does not need us to complete himself. He does not need our work, our money, or our sacrifices to make him happy. God is complete and lacking nothing, and has been so, always. He did not make man so that he could have someone to talk to or do his work. He is self sufficient and in need of no external help or support from any creature.

    The fellowship that the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit have enjoyed with each other forever, is all that God needs and will ever need.

    Just Sing It

    Just Sing It

    Psalms 95:1 Oh come, let us sing to the LORD!

    Today your circumstances in life may be less than you had hoped for. There might be tremendous problems, disappointments, setbacks and discouragement’s. Remember that if you have given your life to Jesus Christ, your life is not your own. You were bought at a price, ransomed from hell and death. Whatever song the Lord has given you to sing, just sing it.

    We are not responsible for what happens to us, but we are responsible for how we react to it. In the midst of difficulties and discouragement’s, we can still sing a song of praise and thanksgiving to the Lord for who He is. Being a Christian is not about what the Lord can give us, but what we can give back to Him because He has already given us His only Son.

    Isaiah 12:4 And in that day you will say: “Praise the LORD, call upon His name; Declare His deeds among the peoples, Make mention that His name is exalted.

    The Best Thing That Ever Happened To You

    The Best Thing That Ever Happened To You

    You don’t know it yet, but that hurt you feel deep down in your heart, that disappointment, the pain, the sorrow and the questions; “Why” will someday be, the best things that ever happened to you. For in those valley’s of pain and trial, we find our closest moments with the Lord. He draws us near when we hurt the most. He gives us the answers we search for when we search for him with all of our heart. Faint not, give no thought to when it will all change for the better, for those days are coming for you soon. Your great God loves you and He will bring you to a place of joy again… Just trust and love him in all your difficulties and know that he is good…

    Romans 8:18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

    To Behold The Face of Jesus

    To Behold The Face of Jesus

    It is my greatest and most fervent desire to behold the face of Jesus on that great and glorious day when I see Him face to face. Whether by death or Rapture, when at once I can see the one who died for me.

    John wrote that on the day that we see Jesus, we will be “like him”, for we will see him as he is…

    1 John 3:2 Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.

    Oh to be like Jesus and breath the words that he would speak and perform the deeds that he would do. But how to perform them? The constant and ongoing struggle of our life is to put off the old man and put on the new righteousness which comes from Jesus himself.

    Though our present struggles and inabilities prevent us from being all that Jesus designed us to be, we do not lose heart for we are confident that very soon we will finally put on that new man that comes from above that will never fade or falter again.

    Thinking About The Love of God

    Thinking About The Love of God

    Just sitting here looking out my window this morning on Bantayan Island and thinking about the love of God.

    The sun has risen about an hour ago in one of the most spectacular displays that I have ever seen. Every new morning I am reminded that His mercies are also new every morning.

    The shimmer from the new sunrise glistens across the water just a few steps from my front door. People are starting their day as they walk along the shore, perhaps wondering if anyone really loves them or cares. I pray a silent prayer for them that somehow through the noise and confusion that they can hear His voice; “I have loved you with an everlasting love…”
