Jesus is over everything

Jesus is over everything.

Good morning Forever Family! Last Sunday Pastor Glen reminded us of Paul’s encouragement towards the family unit. And he encouraged us to pursue love towards one another. I once heard this comment:
Who you are guides what you do, and how we treat others is determined by who we are. In order to do what God has called you to do, you must be who God has called you to be. To be honest, I will I never know who I am without Jesus.

It all comes down to this point: to be like Jesus you have to be with Jesus. If we want to love, forgive, and put others before ourselves, we have to be with Jesus. He gives us the strength and the power to love because He is love. Jesus is both our example and our strength, and if we want to be like Him we have to spend time with Him.

Here is another statement: What we live for determines how we live. If we live with the desire to love Christ, that will impact the decisions we make. If we live for the approval of men, that will impact how we live. In Col. 3, Paul reminds us what is worth living for is Jesus.

We no longer have to live to impress people or prove our worth to others. In fact, all of those who belong to Christ have nothing to prove and no one to impress.
We have nothing to prove because Jesus was and is perfection for us. We have no one to impress because the King of the universe already loves us. This means that we truly are free to love God and love people without trying to figure out ways to make God love us more or gain the approval of others.

Jesus is over everything. He sees everything and knows everything. Not only that, but He has made it possible for us to be reconciled to Him. And as the creator and sustainer of all things, this also means that Jesus will always be King.
Jesus is King in your suffering and in your successes. Jesus is King when you doubt and when you are faithful. Jesus will always be King, which means he can always be trusted. There is salvation in no one else, and there is no other name under heaven given to people by which we must be saved.

What a thought! Let me finish with this…Colossians 3: 12-14 “Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.”

As we prepare for this weekend’s celebration, let us remember why we do what we do…JESUS.

Have a great day! See you soon!

Needed this reminder this morning. It’s too easy to lose sight of Christ’s purpose in my life, even while still going through the motions of serving Him, and it’s frighteningly easy to live for the approval of others rather than love others genuinely because I’m firmly established in the approval of Christ.

Great reminder for sure. When I loose sight of Jesus and His ways, I tend to loose my peace little by little throughout my day. I can’t afford that lol I need to continually be intentional grounding myself in his word even if it means the smallest amount of time spent with with Him. It all counts. He knows our hearts and He knows our ways and yet it’s an ongoing choice, choosing Him above all else, that is when we encounter His love & reflect His nature with others. Lord help me today to do just that 🙏🩵
