Jesus - My Rock
My dear friend Dawn has challenged me to write five things I dig about Jesus. She said it was hard to limit it to five, and she is right. Here are five, but I believe the number is limitless. We will spend eternity telling Him all of the things we love about Him.
1. We sing a little worship song in our church that puts this one into words for me. The
Chorus says: “Of all the things about You that I love, I love the most that You first
“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners,
Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
When I was at my worst, He loved me enough to die for me. I cannot fathom such
love. It makes my heart just burst with love for Him.
2. Jesus, with indescribable humility, left heaven and all that encompassed to come to
earth in the form of man. He was forever changed as He became Son of Man as well
as Son of God. I can hardly get my mind around that. He will always bear the scars
of the sacrifice He made for me. His humility draws me to Him – knowing how
far above me He truly is.
“Have this attitude yourw3elves which was also in Christ Jesus, who, although He
existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped,
but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the
likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by
becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.” Philippians 2: 5-8
3. He is my peace.
“Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives, do I give to
you. Let not your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.” John 14:27
4. He has given me eternal life and saved me from all condemnation.
“Truly, truly I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me,
has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into
life.” John 5: 24
5. He never changes. It is the firm foundation that supports my very life. No matter
what circumstances come into my life, no matter how everything around me seems
to shift I know that He will never change. He will always be all He has promised to
“ Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today , yes and forever.” Hebrews 13:8
Jesus is my everything – my hope, my joy, my life. I cannot imagine how I could live without Him. If it were not for Him, there would be only despair and sorrow when the inevitable storms of life hit with a force that threatens my very existence. He has promised to be with me; promised that nothing will ever separate me from His love. I have found His promises to be true. I love You Lord Jesus.
I’m not going to tag anyone else. I think this is one lots of us will want to do. Feel free to participate and let me know if you do. I am excited to see what you have to say.
