Lean On JESUS

 By Pastor Mike

I wanna talk about how much I need JESUS. I need HIM every second of my life. I need HIS direction in all I do. I need HIS GRACE. HIS Mercy. HIS LOVE. HIS peace. HIS comfort.  HE is always there for us and will answer our prayers. JESUS needs to be first in everything we say and do and think. HE loves us more than we can understand. HE wants us to be with HIM forever.

People have said to me that I use JESUS as a crutch. I do lean and depend on JESUS for everything. I used to lean on the enemy and I always ended up doing the wrong thing. Now I lean on JESUS and great things have happened in my life. I’m excited about JESUS in me. I’m excited about going to heaven. I’m excited about learning more about HIM and what HIS Word is saying to us.

John 12:32

And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.”

HE didn’t say: Lift up a church or a denomination or an organization or a religion or traditions. HE said Lift HIM up.
Talk about HIM, witness about HIM, preach and teach about HIM. Let HIM live in our testimony. Let HIM live in our singing. Remember that the church is a hospital for the hurting not a museum.

The more you grow in your relationship with JESUS, you’ll get a better understanding of all HE has for you. I wanna be super close with JESUS. If you don’t feel close to GOD right now, guess who moved? JESUS doesn’t move. Grab a strong hold of HIM and don’t let go. EVER!

We need to encourage people to build a strong relationship with HIM so they can get the Hope there is in HIM. The Love there is. I encourage everyone today to know JESUS. HE’S the best friend you’ll ever have. HE will be there with you at the mention of HIS Name. HE is always there.

It’s not religion or traditions that saves the lost, heals the sick, and sets the captives free. It’s the living Saviour, JESUS is our Saviour, HE is our healer, HE is our deliverer. HE is the lover of our souls. HE is our everything.

We must never lose sight of JESUS. Always tell people about HIM. Never substitute anything for JESUS, because there’s nothing that can take HIS place in our lives.

No matter how intense the battle, no matter how weary the warrior, no matter how overwhelming the odds – do not retreat. With the Word of GOD in your hands, with your brothers and sisters by your side, with the LORD fighting for you, it won’t be you who retreats, your enemy is going down.

Christmas

christmas[1]  By Pastor Mike

Let me begin by saying, we see many people spelling Christmas, ”X-mas.” Many do this unaware that the letter “X” is from the Greek letter “chi” which means Christ or Christo’s. The problem is that not only do most people not know what this means and it also can mean many other things as well such as a movie rating or unknown quantity. I want people to know the reason I celebrate the season and the most important part of Christmas is ”Christ.” Let’s leave the ”X” out and Christ in.

Is it just me but it seems that not long ago people were a lot nicer and friendlier this time of year. Now it seems people are not as friendly or nice anymore. I understand that a lot of bad things are going on in the world today. But we gotta understand that JESUS is the reason we celebrate Christmas – it is all about HIM. It is about HIS birth and why HE came here. HE came to be the Savior of a lost and dying world. JESUS came for sinners. It’s not about shoving people out of the way to buy something. Or to get angry about not getting stuff. It’s a time to think about what this birth means to us.

In Luke 19:10, the Bible says, ”For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.”

That’s what it’s all about. How much HE loves us.

We are strong Christians and we should be fed up with public celebrations that are taking Christ out of Christmas, and believe that our faith is under attack. It’s gotta be up to us to bring back CHRIST in Christmas. We can’t let people forget about HIM.

JESUS is the reason for every season. I’m excited to have JESUS as my best friend ever. HE is always there for me. HE always leads me in the right path. HE brings so much joy in my life. HE makes me wanna tell people about HIM because of what HE’S done for me and for others. HE’S the best thing that has ever happened in my life.

When Mary came to Bethlehem to give birth to the baby JESUS, the Bible says there was ”no room for them in the inn.” Not much has changed. But thank GOD, that we who love HIM have a place for HIM in our hearts. Never be ashamed of the Gospel. We are strong in JESUS. No sissies allowed. Are you making room for JESUS in your life in every situation?

Isaiah 9:6

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Always remember who JESUS and why HE came here and always put HIM first in your life. HE will always take care of you.
