Why Jesus – by Aremuorin – Anthony EverestPosted: January 4, 2016
‘You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world’. – 1 John 4:4
A stuffed life, is a stuff-less life without Christ. I found peace when I let that go of that stuff. Now, I am Me. The love of Jesus set me free, let no demons tell lies on me. I was born to be an artiste, happy, free and celebrate life.
I always say, one great friend is worth more than a million fake friends ..’ I find that one faithful friend in #JesusChrist. I laugh when I meet people and within a week they unfriend, you, because – you are secure in who you are, or because of your faith ..’
That’s not love. Just because you are you – why should you apologise for it. In fact, that’s the litmus test. People who love you, would never judge you, for who you are. That is Love – and that’s what love would do ..’
And those – who stray into your life, because of opportunities that suite them, only, are no friends at – all. You are certainly, better off, without – them – a million times over.
I guarantee you, Jesus would never do that to you. In fact, he took the fall, long before you knew. Before you knew your worst enemy. That’s why he’s ever faithful, loving, steadfast and the most kindest, selfless friendship you’ll ever know ..’
Stuff. Fame. The world. That’s all good – but where does it leave you, when it leaves you, empty inside – with only fake friends on the outside? I rather have Jesus – with all the good stuff ‘that I need’ – than without, Jesus – and all the wrong things – ‘that I don’t need’, that are bad for me.
On Self esteem ..’ This still cracks me up – sometimes when I remember ..’
Because, not a day goes by, when I don’t encounter this scenario – its comical ..’
Mathew 4 – 8 to 9 ..
8 Again, the devil took Him*(JESUS), to a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory; 9 and he said to Him, “All these things I will give You, if You fall down and worship me.” 10 Then Jesus said to him, “Go, Satan! For it is written, ‘YOU SHALL WORSHIP THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND SERVE HIM ONLY.'”…
I’m like :: Sorry – wrong no! ..’ Don’t bother Trying again. ‘He that is in me – is greater than he that is in the world ..’ – Amen
