Our Story


Now what?

What do I & What do you do with the RISEN LORD?

"______ *(put your name in the blanks)

has been crucified with CHRIST and _____* no longer lives, but CHRIST lives in _____*.

The life I ______* now live in the body, _______* lives by faith in the SON OF GOD ,

who loved _____* and gave HIMSELF for _____*" (Galatians 2:20).

I want to be like JESUS.~

ALWAYS.

I want to

ALWAYS wear HUMILITY

Like JESUS did~

"Your attitude should be the same as that of CHRIST JESUS: 


Who, being in very nature GOD,

Did not consider equality with GOD something to be grasped,

but made HIMSELF nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.

And being found in appearance as a man, HE humbled HIMSELF" (Philippians 2:8).


But I don't~

ALWAYS

I want to ALWAYS OBEY

Like JESUS did~

Although HE was a SON

HE learned obedience from what HE suffered and, once made perfect,

HE became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey HIM” (Hebrews 5:8).

But I don't~

ALWAYS!

I want to ALWAYS

Not Succumb to TEMPTATION

Like JESUS did~

... but we have ONE who has been tempted in every way,

just as we are—yet was without sin...” (Hebrews 4:15).

But I don't~

ALWAYS!

I want to ALWAYS LOVE

Like JESUS did~

"love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you" (Matthew 5:44)

But I don't~

ALWAYS!

I want to ALWAYS SEE

Like JESUS did~

"For the joy set before HIM" (Hebrews 12:2)

because JESUS never lost sight to where HE was headed~

to HIS real home where HIS citizenship was.

HIS eyes focused on the unseen, with HIS heart fixed on HIS purpose~

HIS FATHER'S will.

HE was able to walk the talk, because HIS eyes were fixed beyond the cross~

"For the joy set before HIM"

for that is GOD'S will for our lives~

To live in the JOY found in

JESUS.

I want to ALWAYS WALK

Like JESUS did~

But I can't & you can't~

ALWAYS

because

We need JESUS

to

Walk with ALWAYS!

So let's Journey together

and Put JESUS into our story because HE ROSE to put HIMSELF in ours~

"Keep _____'s* eyes on JESUS,

who both began and finished this race we’re in.

Study, ______*, how HE did it. Because HE never lost sight of where HE was headed—

that exhilarating finish in and with GOD—

HE could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever.

And now HE'S there, in the place of honor, right alongside GOD.

When you, ________,* find yourselves flagging in your faith, go over that story again,

item by item, that long litany of hostility HE plowed through. That will shoot adrenaline into______'s* soul! (Hebrews 12:2-3 "Personalized Version MSG)

Because

JESUS is our

"WAY MAKER" (listen to the song below)
