Jesus Is

October 20, 2010 | My Jottings

Several years ago I heard a presentation done at a Christian gathering that I have never forgotten. As I listened to the following piece being slowly read I got goosebumps and my eyes filled with tears. Everyone in the room appeared riveted as they listened to the title of every book in the Bible being reverently read out loud, along with how Jesus Christ is woven through all sixty-six of those books.

What are our needs today? Do we need a friend who will stick closer than a brother? Do we need to be avenged? Do we need refuge? Do we need something broken to be made new? Do we need someone to bear our burdens? Do we need hope?

I need all those things.

Take time to read the following slowly and prayerfully, and realize who Jesus is….

Today I am so grateful for the amazing grace that means that He is mine, and I am His.

Do you need His love, His power, His amazing grace?
