If you’re a child of God, this verse offers a warm fuzzy feeling and you feel loved and protected. If you’re not His child, it could possibly scare the hooey out of you – and for good reason. It’s one more reminder that sitting on the proverbial fence is not an option. You’re either God’s kid – or you’re not. There’s no in-between.
Jesus loves you! He does… and there’s not a thing you can do about it.
God is love, but don’t be deceived. Our God is all-powerful and is in control of everything. He is not a senile old man who puts up with sin and laughs it off. He’s not going to give anyone a pass when it comes to transgression of His law! Your earthly grandfather may do that, but the God of the universe will not.
When Jesus told the sea to be still… it obeyed! As I write this, I’m reminded of a song we sang in our youth group called “SEA WALKER”. Some of you younger folk are gonna laugh, but hey… I’m old. LOL!
Who is Jesus? He’s the only begotten Son of God. He was sent by God to earth as a baby and was raised in a Jewish family. Is there more to it? Of course – so much more! Without His teachings about His Father and our Heavenly Father, we would be clueless. Without His ultimate sacrifice on Calvary… wow – we’d be in such big trouble in eternity! Many people have the idea that Christ HAD to die for our sins. Um… nope! He could have changed His mind any time – He could have said we’re not worth His sacrifice. Did He say that? NO, He didn’t – and we should make it part of our daily prayer to thank Him for going through with it.
Lucinda wrote an amazing poem for today. It’s enlightening and uplifting to my spirit! I’m so happy to share it with you!
Jesus is our link to God, therefore, we are careful to end our prayers with “In Jesus’ name”. If we take the time to study the Bible and get to know our Savior, Christ Jesus, we will get a glimpse at our Father God. If we know Jesus, we basically know God. That’s why it’s so important to study the Bible. Study, trust and obey. 🙂
