Take refuge in the LORD

It is better to take refuge in the LORD  than to trust in humans.

Psalm 118:8

Notable Quote

Jesus Saw Their FAITH

Jesus saw their FAITH and their sins were forgiven. Seems pretty simple but people make this concept difficult:

When Jesus saw their faith, he said, “Friend, your sins are forgiven.” Luke 5:20

Perfect Love and Fear

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.

Not to us, LORD

Not to us, LORD , not to us but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness.

Psalm 115:1

Jesus did many other things

Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.

John 21:25

Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God

But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.

The Side of Truth

The reason I was born and came into the world is to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.” ~Jesus


Jesus, knowing all that was going to happen to him, went out and asked them, “Who is it you want?”    “Jesus of Nazareth,” they replied.   “I am he,” Jesus said. (And Judas the traitor was standing there with them.) When Jesus said, “I am he,” THEY DREW BACK and FELL TO THE GROUND.

John 18:4-6

This verse struck me today:

This verse struck me today:

JHN 16:2 NIV

The Great I Am

“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. ~Jesus


Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out!   “Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?”    “Who has ever given to God, that God should repay them?”    For from him and through him and for him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen.

Romans 11:33-36

That's why they call it Good News

Jesus must have felt like a broken record at times. He had to repeat Himself a lot. Over and over again and they still didn't get it. I think it would have been more difficult to grasp back then. At least we have the Text today. It's really not that hard. That's why they call it Good News:

“Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?” ~Jesus


Jesus Wept

Jesus wept.

John 11:35

Do You Believe This?

“I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die;  and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?” ~Jesus

Ah, Sovereign LORD

“Ah, Sovereign LORD , you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.

Jeremiah 32:17
