There is only One star - The Bright Morning Star...
Welcome to the The Unrivaled God - Jesus Christ Blogspot. It is my aim to keep you posted on the great things that God is doing in the various places He has opened the opportunity for us to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ - the good news of Salvation...To keep the spotlight firmly focused and shining on Him.We are simply "door-holders" - holding the door wide open for people to enter the presence of Almighty God...To meet with Him - the Creator of the Universe, who breathed stars (including our sun) into existance...By His spoken word are all things formed...And yet this Great, Almighty, All-Powerful, Infinite God hand-picked the way for us to be able to have a relationship with Him...He knows everything and everyone...And through the way He created and sent to this dying world, Jesus Christ, we are able to know God Almighty, THE unrivaled God, closely.
There is nothing more worthwhile in this life doing than imparting HOPE into the Hopeless... FAITH into the Weak... PEACE into the Restless... JOY into the Downtrodden...Jesus Christ is the fulfilment of all of these things...He alone is the ANSWER for life's circumstances. If He could speak light - the source of our light-the mighty, fierce, intense, huge Sun - into existence, "He is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we can ask or even think" (Ephesians 3:20). He is THE Unrivaled God.
We do not take any acknowledgement for the transformations in the lives of people. There is only one LIFE-CHANGER in this - Jesus Christ...There is only one "star" in this - The Bright Morning Star - Jesus Christ (Rev 22:16).We live to hold up the signage pointing directions to Jesus Christ. To make His fame renown in the lives of individuals...and in the community they live in... Isaiah 26:8 summarises this (New Living Translation) "Lord, we show our trust in You by obeying Your laws; our heart's desire is to glorify Your name." This is our aim. Our goal. The soul reason for our existance. To obey God's word. To share the Gospel. To seek truth. To love righteousness. To embrace justice. To shout His fame. To bring glory to His name. The Name above all Names. Jesus Christ. I like how the Message Bible translation reads of the same verse: "We're in no hurry, God. We're content to linger in the path sign-posted with Your decisions.Who You are and what You've done are all we'll ever want."
Together, with other Christians around the world, striving for the common goal of sharing the Gospel message, the good news of the difference Jesus has made in our lives, the Body of Christ united has the ability to make a difference...the difference Jesus made...the difference only Jesus can make...Let this inspire and encourage you in the Greatness, Faithfulness and Awesomeness of Almighty God...and the life changing truth found in the source of Truth - Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ. THE Saviour of the World. THE Champion of our Souls. THE Ransom price paid for the Lives of Humanity. THE Unrivaled God.
Please keep praying...God hears us when we call...He never sleeps (Ps 121:4)...And He doesn't lack hearing (Isaiah 59:1)...
