3.15.2022 – Urgent Reminder: Jesus is Lord

I don’t think I have ever had such a deep realization

of our desperate need

to get back to the purity of the simple gospel of Jesus Christ.

The pure, and simple message of the cross—it’s always the answer.

The deep knowing,

the deep realization of,

the deep acknowledgement of the TRUTH…

that Jesus Christ is Lord of all, and that HE is the light and hope of the world.

I’ve been seeing a lot of things lately, a lot of lines blurred that concern me.

Here is something that I’ve learned…

We can’t get more “spiritual” than the message of Jesus.

We can’t go any deeper

or further

or higher.

Jesus leads us to the “Tree of Life” 🌳⛲️

And there is this lure,

this thirst…for “hidden, secret knowledge”…

And don’t get me wrong, I marvel over the mystery of God. ✨

I love that He knows all, there is nothing hidden from His sight.

He has all understanding, and He gives the understanding that we need by His Spirit.

But can we remember the ancient lesson,

the consequences that came

from sinning and eating of the “Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil”…

…when God told us to trust Him,

and “leave it alone”…

I think we might be surprised by the fruit that will come,

from simply feeding on the gospel of Jesus.

The Word.

Our firm foundation, our solid rock.

THE way THE truth and THE life.

“I am the Alpha and the Omega—the beginning and the end,” says the Lord God. “I am the one who is, who always was, and who is still to come—the Almighty One.”—Revelation 1:8

Jesus is always the answer.

And there is safety in keeping Him at the very center of our lives, our focal point.

Because it’s so easy

to get pulled one way or the other and forget the importance of keeping “the main thing, the main thing”…

…and Jesus Christ is

the main thing. 📖☀️

It all begins, and grows, and flourishes from Him.

Jesus is the only “answer” that we need.

May we never forget,

—and if we should forget

if we should and lose sight,

if we should lose balance,

if we should get off track…

Lord Jesus, will You remind us by Your Spirit, and guide us back to “the main thing”…

—that YOU are Lord of all. 🙌

Lord Help us, so that all that we say, and all that we do, always points back to You.

“…at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”—Philippians 2:9-11

Thank You, Father. 💝
