Does Jesus get you excited? Just thinking about Jesus and all that He has done for me just gets me so excited I get set “ON FIRE”!! “ON FIRE FOR JESUS”! I don’t know about you but just knowing I am adopted into God’s family gets me going! Knowing that when I praise Him and spend time with Him that He is pleased with me. Not because of what I have done but, what He has done for me. Because of what Jesus has done, I am free from sin. I am free from the chains of bondage. Jesus purchased our freedom. He shed His blood so we wouldn’t have to suffer or pay what we truly owe. Even though we have done wrong He fully forgives us if we will only ask. He freely showers us with His blessings and kindness.
I want to challenge each one of you today. Today let’s all take the time to talk to one person we know that doesn’t know Jesus. Just one person, let them know about Jesus and how much He cares for them and loves them. Let them know that Jesus paid the ultimate price for them. That Jesus is not mad at them, that He is waiting to shower them with kindness, wisdom and understanding that they will never know without first knowing Him. Let them know that He will do exceedingly and abundantly more than they can ever hope or dream. Today let’s all get excited. Get so excited that we are set “ON FIRE FOR JESUS TODAY”!!
Even before He made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be Holy and without fault in His eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into His own family by bringing us to Himself through Jesus Christ. This is what He wanted to do, and it gave Him great pleasure. So we praise God for the glorious grace He has poured out on us who belong to His dear Son. He is so rich in kindness and grace that He purchased our freedom with the blood of His Son and forgave our sins. He has showered His kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding. (Ephesians 1:4-8 NLT)
