The way He does

Do you love the way he does.

Do you miss Him, the way He misses you.

Do you speak to Him, the way He speaks to you.

Do you praise Him the way He wants you to praise Him.

Do you speak about Him, the way He speaks about you.

Would you defend Him, the way He defends you.

Do you do things for Him, the way He does things for you.

Would you give everything up, the way He gave everything for you.

Would you sacrifice your life, the way He sacrifice His for you.

Do you forgive others, the way He forgives you.

Do you accept Him, the way He accepts you.

Are you kind, the way He’s kind to you.

Would you stand up for Him, the way He does for you.

Do you know Him, the way He Knows you.

You say you love Him, that you worship Him; but are you willing to do it the way He deserves to be worshiped? Walking with Jesus is like being in a relationship, everything listed above is what you would want your significant other to do for you. Now do you have a relationship with Jesus that you do all of the above? If not than it’s best you start doing it. Jesus does more for us than we deserve and yet we are not grateful. He’s constantly doing things for us so we notice him, but we just keep pushing him away. If we want to do all for Christ than we should start by allowing him to come into our hearts and letting him take control of our sorrows, pain, etc. Jeremiah 29:11″For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord , plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope”. If we allow him to do so he’ll do greater things than we have thought of doing on our own. the joy of praising and worshiping Jesus is better than any materialistic thing on this earth.

He’s hurting.

He’s hurting when I wake up in the morning and don’t thank Him for it.

He’s hurting when I rush out the door and say a prayer less than a minute long “thank you Jesus, protect me. Amen.”- What!! that’s it? That’s all I have to say?

He’s hurting when I don’t think about him enough.

He’s hurting when I’m not kind to a stranger.

He’s hurting when I criticize and judge instead of landing a helping hand.

He’s hurting when I have negative thoughts, instead of positive ones.

He’s hurting when I come home, exhausted from work or school and I don’t tell him how my day went. He’s more than willing to listen to me.

He’s hurting when I don’t spend time with Him.

He’s hurting when I don’t introduce Him to others.

He’s hurting when I don’t share Him with others and speak about Him.

He’s hurting when night falls and I don’t speak to Him before going to bed.

What people want vs what people need to hear.

Being a youth director has a lot of challenges. People always have an opinion on how something should be done. They think because I’m open to suggestions it’s ok to assume that they are the ones in charge.  The funny thing about this is that even though I’m a youth director at my church; The one that really has control is Jesus.  He’s the only one that can change my ideas and programs, he’s the one that tells me “listen to what people need not what they want”. Jesus is my number one counselor, then the rest. 
        Have you ever had a plan, I mean like a really good skit, sermon or video to teach the youth something;  But all of a sudden you teach something completely different?  That has happened to me many times. That’s ok because Jesus is in control he has good intentions when he decides to change things up a little. The bible says:
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.- Jeremiah 29:11-13.
       Jesus will never do something to harm you.  He does it for your benefit and others as well.  If you ever feel like your plans have changed, don’t be discouraged or afraid. Embrace it with open arms and remember to so all things for the glory and honor of Jesus Christ.
