As though I am not loved ;-)



This I Believe

I believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth.
I am ashamed to claim faith in Jesus Christ, unworthy as I am
to bear that name and call myself a Christian. For my sake he was
crucified under Pontius Pilate, suffered death and was buried.

I love the order and witness of the Christian faith;
the unassuming birth, disarming life, unjustifiable death,
and the deserted tomb that answer prophecy of Scripture.

A burning stick snatched from the fire, I believe I am more sinful
than I could imagine and more loved than I dare hope.*

Yet I worship at the altar of Self, and often insist and want and
worry as though there were no God. As though I were not loved.

I believe in right and wrong, and that I need saving from myself.
I need a God who is wiser than my purposes, deeper than my
hopelessness, higher than my dreams – a God who owes me nothing.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, Resurrection power
in this flesh and in the heart that fails me.

But how easily would I make my professions on a bed of nails,
not the carpet of ease and cultural civility of my times? On my deathbed
I will call myself Christian because grace will have won out in the end.

This I believe.

Pontius Pilate


From a weirdo

I have a crush on you
and it is growing quite big
Too big to hide
Under blanket or wig

So I must tell you now
I must tell you today
I must let this secret out
No, it cannot stay

If it does I’ll burst
If I keep it I’ll scream
And I cannot miss my chance
Or lose the girl from my dream

So here I stand
And here I confess
I have a crush on you
I like you the best

the girl from my dream


That’s what actually happened when Herod, Pontius Pilate, the other nations, and the people of Israel all came together against Jesus here in Jerusalem. He is your holy Servant, the one you made to be the Messiah. (source)

So the Lord alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him.

Come to Jesus


The only one who can give us eternal life is Jesus Christ but we have to come to Him. The thief on the cross next to Jesus CALLED ON HIM and Jesus saved him, He said to him:”Today you will be with Me in paradise.”
People do not want to come to Jesus, as Jesus said to the pharisees:”You diligently search the scriptures in there to find eternal life but you refuse to come to Me to have life.” Only Jesus can give us LIFE, IF we come to Him, if we OBEY Him and and if we stay with Him until the very end.
Jesus Christ alone is the WAY the TRUTH and the LIFE, come to Jesus and stay with Jesus UNTIL the very end.
May Jesus bless you.

Abel


And Abel, he also brought of the first-lings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering (source)

You have come to Jesus, who arranged the new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that promises much better things than does the blood of Abel.(source)

And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth. For, said she, God hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel; for Cain slew him.
