_ 081414 It's all about jesus

Oh give thanks unto the Lord for He is good yes He is good and worthy of our praise. I’m sharing a short but sweet story from the book of Luke. Let it bless you today and every day.

Today’s Prayer

Dear Lord Jesus, this is the season for giving, because You first gave to us. What can we give You? How simple it would be if we could purchase one gift, a really special gift, wrap it, give it, and be through. But no, we can’t buy You a gift, can we? It isn’t that simple. You want us to totally surrender our lives to You. You want us to re-commit ourselves to You every day of the year. For You, Christmas was total involvement forever, wasn’t it? That too, is the gift You want from us, one that only we can give. Oh Lord, help us to love You enough to want to give You this gift. In your holy name we pray, Amen and Amen.

Let’s eat.

Two Seekers

The sinner seeking the Savior and the Savior seeking the sinner

Luke 19:1-10

Jesus entered Jericho and made his way through the town. There was a man there named Zacchaeus (the sinner). He was the chief tax collector in the region, and he had become very rich. He tried to get a look at Jesus, but he was too short to see over the crowd. So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree beside the road, for Jesus was going to pass that way. When Jesus came by, he looked up at Zacchaeus and called him by name. “Zacchaeus!” he said. “Quick, come down! I must be a guest in your home today.” Zacchaeus quickly climbed down and took Jesus to his house in great excitement and joy. But the people were displeased. “He has gone to be the guest of a notorious sinner,” they grumbled. Meanwhile, Zacchaeus stood before the Lord and said, “I will give half my wealth to the poor, Lord, and if I have cheated people on their taxes, I will give them back four times as much!” Jesus responded, “Salvation has come to this home today, for this man has shown himself to be a true son of Abraham. For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost.”

These two great truths are the complement of each other.

Quote of the Day

For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin – real life. But there are always some obstacles in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.
