God Doesn’t Need You

God doesn’t need you,

you know

 

But He’s

desperate

for you

 

He longs deeply

with a Father’s heart

 

God is fulfilled in Himself,

gloriously satisfied

 

but He would go to great lengths

just for you

 

He was willing to give Himself,

to give His Son

 

He gave up Heaven position

in perfection

 

to enter our broken world,

to walk with imperfect

 

He was willing to spend years

in dust and dirt and filth

 

like us

 

And He didn’t have to

 

Love

compels

the heart of God

 

and pure love made Him so desperate for YOU

that He allowed His own torture

 

and murder

 

He didn’t need to!

and He didn’t need you!

 

But

He was

desperate

for you

 

So

when you reject that gift,

that Deity sacrifice

 

you couldn’t turn from a greater treasure

 

It’s absurd

This is how much God loved the world: He gave His Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in Him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending His Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in Him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust Him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to Him.

– John 3:16-18 (MSG)

 

The Lord appeared to me in a faraway place and said, “I love you with an everlasting love. So I will continue to show you my kindness.”

– Jeremiah 31:3 (GW)

 

There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

– John 15:13 (NLT)

You Are Not Enough

I’m sorry to say it

 

You are not

enough

 

And we hear all the time,

“You are enough”

 

But in essence,

it’s not true!

 

YOU

are not enough

 

You have a deep, deep

need

for God

 

Deeper

than you can even imagine

 

And not only do you have a need

for God

but you also have a need

for His Son

 

Jesus was enough

Jesus is enough

 

That is why He is the only One

who could be sacrificed for a world of sin

 

Because He was enough

 

Perfection

 

And not only did we need

that sacrifice

 

but we need our Jesus

every day

 

We NEED Him!

 

We are not enough

 

We fall

we fail

we are weak

we are fragile

 

we are imperfect

 

Our

lives

are

in

His

hands

 

Victory is found in Jesus

 

We are not enough

without Him

Don’t be mistaken; in and of ourselves we know we have little to offer, but any competence or value we have comes from God.

– 2 Corinthians 3:5 (VOICE)

 

For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.

– Philippians 4:13 (NLT)

 

Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in Me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.

– John 15:5 (NLT)
