I’d rather walk in the valley with Jesus than on the mountain-top without Him. He gives a song through long days and nights. He sings loudly— knitting hearts together with sweet chords of love.
Sometimes we feel like a wilted rose,
but it doesn’t have to be for long.
We can come to Jesus…
trusting He understands like no other,
resting between His shoulders,
knowing we are held with strong arms of love.
Like a child, we come to Jesus…
pouring out our hearts,
believing He cares like no other,
receiving His comforting presence,
as living water refreshes our souls;
And once again the sweet fragrance of the Rose fills the air.
On the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out saying, “If anyone
is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. He who believes in me, as the
scriptures said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.'”
John 7: 37-38
Love saw our greater need…
Behind the questions of Nicodemus the teacher.
The woman caught in adultery.
The thief on the cross.
Saul the Pharisee and murderer.
The lost one in church, religious, but no relationship.
The Cross of Calvary is an invitation to all.
It doesn’t matter who we are
or what we have done.
The religious teacher who seeks Jesus is born again,
and receives new life of God’s Spirit.
The immoral released from guilt and shame
now walks with a pure heart.
The thief enters paradise
and lives with Jesus forever.
The Pharisee paroled from hell,
receives new life and vision.
The religious rebel redeemed from self-works
now walks with the Living God.
If we want to know God and live with Him eternally,
we need only look to the Cross and believe.
For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him, will have eternal life, and I Myself will raise him up on the last day. (John 6:40)
When we see Jesus, the foot of the cross becomes the Amazing Throne of Grace.
Will you meet me there?
Our Father in Heaven, we bow our hearts and lives before you, thanking you for eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. May Your Kingdom come, Your will be done. Forgive our sins. Renew our faith. Give us new songs of praise. In the name of Jesus our Lord, amen.
