For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.

a LOVE unmatchable

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners,
Christ died for us.
Romans 5:8

Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
I John 4:10

A word that is so small, yet so powerful.
A word that so many use, yet dont fully understand.
What is love?
or a even better question to consider...
WHO is love?

My answer? Jesus Christ. The Savior of this world.

love denied himself.
love was led to the cross.
love bore the sins of the world.
love lived a blameless life.
love died a sinners death.
love was the ultimate sacrifice.
love was selfless.

Jesus Christ was true love.

This love is unmatchable. No other can compare. This love is selfless. It puts the needs of others first. It is a complete denying of yourself, and complete reliance on the creator of this world. Trusting in Him. Leaning on Him. Letting Him lead.

Becoming so consumed so that when others see you they can't tell when you end and God begins.

Basically living your life like Christ. Permeating LOVE with your whole being.

My prayer is that others can know this truth. That those without Jesus can partake in the gift that TRUE LOVE has provided. That those with Jesus can be so consumed with TRUE LOVE that their one desire is to proclaim the name of Christ, and live lives that point to this...

love unmatchable.

With Hands Raised

I come on my knees,
to lay down before You...
Bringing all that I am,
longing only to know You...

This is my passion...
This is my desire...
This is what I yearn for....
-to know Jesus Christ.
-to fellowship with my Creator.
-to sit at the feet of the one who sacrificed His own life to save mine.

He saved this wretched sinner. He bore the sins of the world. He willingly became sin. He denied Himself and took up the cross that His Father commanded Him to carry. He gave up His throne. He felt pain. He became man... He lived in this world... yet lived blameless... without sin.

I pray that my life reflects Jesus Christ. I pray that when others see me, they see Jesus.... look past me... see my heart... one that is consumed with love. A love that is so selfless, is so unconditional... A love that can only come from God.

I have been called to serve God and others. I have been called to love unconditionally. I have been called to worship without shame. I do it all for my Audience of One. I do it all for Jesus Christ.
