Rear Guard

June 21, 2012

The LORD before and behind
Guide and Guard
Sun and Shield
Grace and Glory
Trust in the LORD and
Be encompassed!

His glory
The radiance of Christ’s face
My rear guard!

Exodus 14:19-20 NASB … The angel of God, who had been going before the camp of Israel, moved and went behind them; and the pillar of cloud moved from before them and stood behind them. So it came between the camp of Egypt and the camp of Israel; and there was the cloud along with the darkness, yet it gave light at night. Thus the one did not come near the other all night.

Resurrection, Life and Light

June 9, 2012

I AM the Light of the world
I AM the Resurrection and the Life
Whoever follows
(believes in, adheres to, trusts in, and relies on) Me
Will have the Light of life.

“Did I not tell you and promise you that if you would believe and rely on Me, you would see the glory of God?” -Jn 11:40 AMP

.

John 1:4 AMP … In Him was Life, and the Life was the Light of men.

John 8:12 NASB … Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.”

John 11:25-26 AMP … Jesus said to her, I am [Myself] the Resurrection and the Life. Whoever believes in (adheres to, trusts in, and relies on) Me, although he may die, yet he shall live; And whoever continues to live and believes in (has faith in, cleaves to, and relies on) Me shall never [actually] die at all. Do you believe this?

Because He First Loved Us

June 3, 2012

We love Him because He first loved us. -1 Jn 4:19

Quotes: Spurgeon Grace Gems

There is no true love to Jesus in the heart but that which comes from the Lord Jesus Himself.
Because He first loved us …

From this overflowing fountain of the infinite love of God, all our love to God must spring.

As love comes from heaven, so it must feed on heavenly
bread. It cannot exist in the wilderness unless it be fed by
manna from on high.

Amazing love, ponder anew the amazing love of Jesus Christ our Lord. Worship Him anew, the King of kings, in awe and wonder!
