None but Jesus
Haven’t written that much in a while. Because, to be totally transparent, I have been feeling pretty overwhelmed. I am honest to a fault, because i cannot lie. If I say something, that appears to be untrue, I get so convicted, and like immediately confess it. I suppose, it’s just the way Jesus created me. I’m both grateful, and yet at times, have been tormented by it.
Now this, does not mean, I never fell for a lie. Because, there were times, that I absolutely I did. Without Jesus at the helm, I’m sure I still would. But, through the process of surrender, I am seeing Jesus bring wholeness and healing, to His body. His delight is YOU. He created YOU. He adores and LOVES YOU. Those are not just words.
Have you ever felt forsaken, neglected, dejected, and thrown away? Because, if SO, then you are in good company. Jesus experienced, very little acceptance. Most often, what He received was “pretended acceptance.” How many of you, have had someone say they just love you, then drop you, when it suits them? Well, Jesus will NEVER ever do that! Anyone who really closely knows HIM, should not do that either.
IF WE are the face of HIS Grace, then WE must consider others, in our actions. Ultimately, in doing so, WE honor JESUS in full. We honor our Heavenly Father, and the Holy Spirit. You deserve honor, because Jesus loves you. YOU are the child of a KING, of royal and holy decent. Who is it that receives the honor in YOU, Jesus. But, because He adores you, He shares HIS LOVE. Jesus embodies selflessness. His name mean, holy sacrifice.
YOUR name In HIM is important. Today, take the time, and seek what HE calls you?
Who do you say I am, “You are the Christ, the risen son of God.”

Peter’s Confession of Christ
13 Now when Jesus went into the [a]region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” 14 And they answered, “Some say John the Baptist; others, Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah, or [just] one of the prophets.” 15 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” 16 Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed), the Son of the living God.” 17 Then Jesus answered him, “Blessed [happy, spiritually secure, favored by God] are you, Simon son of Jonah, because flesh and blood (mortal man) did not reveal this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. 18 And I say to you that you are [b]Peter, and on this [c]rock I will build My church; and the[d]gates of Hades (death) will not overpower it [by preventing the resurrection of the Christ]. 19 I will give you the keys (authority) of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind [forbid, declare to be improper and unlawful] on earth [e]will have [already] been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose [permit, declare lawful] on earth [f]will have [already] been loosed in heaven.” 20 Then He gave the disciples strict orders to tell no one that He was the Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed).
