Hanging On

If you got all that you wanted right now, would you still need the Lord?

Think about it... If I got all that I wanted right now

why would I even go to the Lord...

unless I got all that I really needed which is Him!

Want and Need When Jesus was born, we needed Him.

There was a need.

I feel God threw up his hands and said to Jesus....

"Go down there my boy, it is time.

They are really messing up.

Let's show them Who we are and offer to them what they really need." So Jesus came...

To be born in a manager

To walk through life as "man"...

To forgive

so we could live with Him in eternity.

He gave us all that we needed on the cross.

It is finished.

His ultimate power revealed to us through His resurrection.

How powerful is that?

What more could I want

What more could you want

If we did get all that we needed? Jesus could have got off that cross in a second,

but He didn't...

even when the people were "taunting and tempting" Him in Luke 23... The people stood watching, and the rulers even sneered at him. They said,

“He saved others; let Him save Himself if He is God’s Messiah, the Chosen One.” There Jesus was on the cross
