Are you desperate for meaning and purpose for your life?
There is one answer alone that answers all of those questions….
The Glorious, True, Righteous, Risen, Eternal God, Prince of Peace, the Solid Rock
The Lord Jesus Christ who died for my sins and for yours, who rose again on the third day, who lives eternally, and who promises the same eternal beautiful life to all who believe in His Name.
Resurrection Sunday is every day….He lives! Praise God for the solid rock and anchor that holds us and never lets go.
I may not know you personally, but Jesus does. He knows everything about you, and He loves you so much. Please open the door of your heart to Him. He wants to save you and give you peace that you have never known before in your life.
My hope is built on nothing less Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness I dare not trust the sweetest frame But wholly rest on Jesus’ name On Christ the solid rock I stand All other ground is sinking sand All other ground is sinking sand
When Darkness veils His lovely face I rest in his unchanging grace In every high and stormy gale My anchor holds within the veil
On Christ the solid rock i stand All other ground is sinking sand All other ground is sinking sand
On Christ the solid rock I stand All other ground is sinking sand All other ground is sinking sand
– Edward Mote, 1834, “On Christ the solid rock I stand”
“We are always either drawing nearer to God or falling away. There is no holding pattern.”
“I discovered an astonishing truth: God is attracted to weakness. He can’t resist those who humbly and honestly admit how desperately they need him.”
Both of the above quotes are from Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire, a wonderful book written in 1997 by Jim Cymbala. I heartily recommend reading this accounting of what the Lord is doing at Brooklyn Tabernacle Church. It is energizing, convicting, and is exactly what I needed to read.
We all want change. We look around at the state of the world, of people’s souls, and feel at a loss. God and God alone brings real change. And real prayer and humility and true love to those who are desperately hurting is the way that people see that Jesus Christ is real and alive and that He loves them without measure.
“For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him.” – 2 Chronicles 16:9
Praying with you…..let’s pray and keep praying and then pray some more. Pray continually.
Lord, we humble ourselves before you. Forgive us. Cleanse us. Make us like Your Son through Your Holy Spirit. Help us to love, love without limit like You. Fill us with Your Spirit, for Your Glory, for this time.
