“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world; but that the world should be saved through Him.”
Kelli Ryan, a sister in Christ who has an email ministry similar to mine, sent me a profound message that I couldn’t help but share this week. Some of you may have read the following poem before; it truly defines Christianity, and our worth to our Lord. First of all, we are only worthy, because of Jesus. I think about when I was in grammar school and we would pick teams for kickball or softball during P.E. I always felt sorry for the kid who was picked last…(sometimes that kid was me..ha). The message below affirms how HE CHOSE ME and HE CHOSE YOU…..and we are His FIRST pick. We didn’t deserve to be picked, but the Son proved how important we are to Him! YOU are special! YOU are the apple of His eye. He loved YOU first. If that doesn’t get you pumped, well, just read on………
The U in JesUs (…Author unknown)
Before U were thought of or time had begun,
God even stuck U in the name of His Son.
And each time U pray, you’ll see it’s true
You can’t spell out JesUs and not include U.
You’re a pretty big part of His wonderful name,
For U, He was born; that’s why He came.
And His great love for U is the reason He died.
It even takes U to spell crUcified.
Isn’t it thrilling and splendidly grand
He rose from the dead, with U in His plan?
The stones split away, the gold trUmpet blew,
and this word resUrrection is spelled with a U.
When JesUs left earth at His Upward ascension,
He felt there was one thing He just had to mention.
“Go into the world and tell them it’s trUe
That I love them all – Just like I love U.”
So many great people are spelled with a U,
Don’t they have a right to know JesUs too?
It all depends now on what U will do,
He’d like them to know, But it all starts with U.
So, if you wondering if the Lord has forgotten about YOU…think again.
He’s crazy about YOU! He allows U-TURNS over and over again!
Oh another thing, He would love it if you told others about His plan!
**Have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend!**
