Who is He to you?
Was He simply a nice guy?
Model of morality?
Or your King of Kings?
Savior of your soul?
Yes to all of the above.
Although, He was and is more than simply a nice guy.
Is He more than your King?
More than your Savior?
While that role is the most important, what about the here and now?
Is He your friend?
Your secure dwelling?
Jesus is so much more than the Savior of our wreched souls.
His role for when we die is the payor of our sins.
Completely paid for.
His role for the here and now involves your everything.
He wants to be your heart’s cry.
He wants to be your first thought when you wake and your last as you close your eyes in rest.
And everything in between.
He wants to fill you with Himself so you can be His witness here on earth.
Taking other precious souls with you when death arrives.
Are you letting Him?
Letting Him be your everything?
If not, you’re missing out big time.
Allow Him to be within you, using your hands and feet to bless others.
Allow Him to bless others while you speak His words of life.
Surrender your life beyond asking Him to save your soul.
Saving your soul is the first step.
Very important, yes, but it’s not the whole package.
Allowing Him to work through you as you surrender every little thing to Him will yield not only happiness, but His perfect peace as you let fear, anxiety, and control fade away.
Simply ask Him to fill you with His Holy Spirit.
Talk to Him throughout the day.
Tell Him how you feel, what you need, and ask Him for His help.
His faithfulness will overwhelm you and His presence will comfort your precious self.
That, my friends, is living.
