As many of you may have also, I received this email one day a couple years ago:
Are you ashamed of Jesus?
Jesus said, "If you are ashamed of me, I will be ashamed of you before my Father."
Not ashamed? Pass this on...only if you mean it.
Yes, I do love God.
He is the source of my existence and Savior. He keeps me functioning each and everyday. Without Him, I am nothing but with Him I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me.
This is the simplest test... if you love God, and are not ashamed of all the marvelous things He has done for you, send this to ten people and the person who sent it to you.
Now, normally I am not real big on the kind of letters that want you to mail it to "X" number of friends, etc.... and I almost passed this one up... but then I got to thinking... and what started out as a short note, became a time of blessing. This was my reply:
I am definitely not ashamed of my precious Lord and Savior ! He gave all and IS ALL ... He is the Master of masters and the King of Kings... our redeemer and our salvation... the Mighty Lion of Judah and the spotless lamb of God... the defeater of satan and the conqueror of hell...
He's a light for the lost and a tower of refuge for those seeking shelter... our hope for the future and the holder of eternity... the bearer of our burdens and the source of our strength.. the great physician and the healer of all hurts... our mighty rock and the living water...
He is father to the fatherless and friend to the friendless... the defender to the accused and the pardoner of the guilty... the jailer of satan and release for the sinner... the destroyer of death and the fountain of life... the fighter of evil and the sower of righteousess...
He is the ruler of the universe yet became a servant of man... our provider of grace and the extender of mercy...He is love eternal and mercy neverending... the holder of all and the giver of everything... our fortress and our protection...
He is peace during the storm and harmony amid the confusion... the source of my comfort and the object of my affection... He bore our sins but stands sinless before the Father... He died in agony and arose in victory... He is all that I am and all that I ever hope to be... He is Jesus... He is Lord... He is my savior and the love of my life and I will praise Him FOREVER !
God's blessings be upon you always!
Much love in Christ,
The song playing is
SONG OF LOVE
Jesus, King of my heart
Father, my peace and my light
Spirit, the joy of my soul You are
Jesus, to you none compare
Father, I rest in Your care
Spirit, the hope of my heart You are
The heavens declare You are God
And the mountains rejoice
The oceans cry Alleluia
As we worship You Lord
For this is our Song of Love
Jesus, You save my soul
I'll thank You forevermore
Jesus, the love of my life You are
Jesus, I am in awe
Of the love that You have shown
Jesus, how precious You are to me

Father, You pour out your blessings on us each and every day in ways that we can't even begin to imagine... but none so great as the gift that You gave us when You sent Your Son to the cross so that we might join You in heaven for all eternity. Thank you, Lord, so much for your mercy and grace... for forgiving us of our sins and for continuing to work on us and mold us more and more to Your image. I am forever grateful and give you all of my praise, Lord. I ask that You bless each visitor to this site and that You continue to draw them with Your Holy Spirit so that they might experience a close, personal relationship with You. May we always set our sights on things above and not those things that are set before us to hinder or confuse. You are wonderful beyond all comprehension, Lord, and I praise Your most holy name. In Jesus' name we pray... amen and amen.
"To Him who is able to keep you
from falling and to present you before His glorious presence without fault and with great joy-- to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen."
Hi Friends ... the joy of the Lord to you.
You know, it seems only natural to want to do things for others when they are always doing things for you. When someone is showering you with love and kindness, it's hard for some part of you not to want to return that to them. But when it comes to God.... well... it's just so overwhelming. There's no possible way for us to give back to Him all that He has given to us. But what we can give Him is what He desires the most... our love, our worship, our praise. From a heart that is totally sold out to Jesus, it's impossible for that not to happen anyways. Just let what is flowing from Him into you, flow back out again. It will bless you, it will bless others, it will bless Him.
