He first came out with Jesus > Religion spoken word poem.
You've probably seen it, but just in case you haven't,
it is DEFINITELY worth seeing again.
If ever there was a perspective on Jesus being greater than religion
it is in this video and in this book.
This young man has been through some stuff,
let me tell you.
And has come out loving Jesus
He says in his book:
"It's scandalous to say,
but one of the uses of the
law was to show us we
couldn't fully keep it
and needed a savior.
It was - and still is - a mirror
to show us where
we need Jesus.
Even the animal
in the law to the Israelites were there
to show them they needed a substitute.
They couldn't do it on their own,
and ultimately Jesus fulfilled that requirement."
Jesus fulfilled the requirement of the law.
He didn't come to abolish the law,
but to fulfill it.
When something is fulfilled,
it is completed.
Jesus completed His work for us
on the cross.
When He cried,
"IT IS FINISHED"
It truly was.
We have ALL we need IN Christ.
Let that seep deep into the crevices
of your heart.
Everything I will ever need to be complete
is found only and solely
On Christ the Solid rock I stand
all other ground is sinking sand.
So today, still yourself.
For a moment.
If only one.
And let Jesus speak to your heart.
Right where you are at.
It's not about religion.
It's not about being good enough.
It's not about cleaning yourself up.
It's not about how pretty you are.
It's about Jesus.
Always and forever.
What will you do about Jesus?
We must all ask ourselves this question.
It is asked of us.
And to not do anything,
is to do something.
So today, know that you are deeply loved.
Deeply cared for.
The Father loves you so much
He sent His Son.
And when Jesus cried out on the cross
"IT IS FINISHED."
