There is not one ounce of weakness in one who chooses Christ

There is not one ounce of weakness in one who chooses Christ,

it’s the opposite, quite frankly – it’s easy to run to a ‘vise,’

‘any dead fish can float down-stream’

but we must remember that it takes ‘one who is alive’ to dare to swim up current and to believe!

Blow off the dust from the Book that is True and walk with Jesus for a chapter or two.

Don’t just listen to people’s opinions of Him. Seriously take a look for yourself, and even personally – ask Him!

‘He was, and is, and is to come!’ The Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit, three in One. He is the Creator, He is ever present, He is Love, … but you will never know- until you seek Him with your eye, …

and with your ear, and with your broken heart – then He, Himself will show you, that He sees your every tear.

And with the Breath of His Spirit, He breathes a ‘courage’ that is ‘not yours’, to ‘die to yourself’ and be filled with Life a-new!

The courage comes from Him! Deliverance comes in surrender!

Don’t say you can’t believe anything you can’t see –  open those eyes and dare to be wrong… The Power of God is seen every day – in the heavens, the sun,  in the ocean currents, the bird’s song,

BUT EVEN GREATER than the beauties of nature -OPEN YOUR EYES and KNOW GOD IS SOVEREIGN, OMNIPOTENT, OMNISCIENT, yes, EVER PRESENT- when young people  will STAND, in the midst of great evil-

yes,  STAND, when they know that life here on earth might end quickly,  when they STAND up for JESUS, with strength from His Hand,  to meet their Bridegroom right there, right then, the DOOR immediately opened-  and immediately in His presence, they, His beloved Stand.

Believe THEIR witness – they KNEW God! They are with Him, in Paradise, In HEAVEN! We are left here, with time to consider, each, our  own position! This is the song those who STAND for Christ express.  Can you hear them now with great courage, address:

  1. “I have decided to follow Jesus;
    I have decided to follow Jesus;
    No turning back, no turning back.
  2. Though I may wonder, I still will follow;
    Though I may wonder, I still will follow;
    Though I may wonder, I still will follow;
    No turning back, no turning back.
  3. The world behind me, the cross before me;
    The world behind me, the cross before me;
    The world behind me, the cross before me;
    No turning back, no turning back.
  4. Though none go with me, still I will follow;
    Though none go with me, still I will follow;
    Though none go with me, still I will follow;
    No turning back, no turning back.”

COURAGE has a new definition. COURAGE is those who will STAND for JESUS:

  1. “Will you decide now to follow Jesus?
    Will you decide now to follow Jesus?
    Will you decide now to follow Jesus?
    No turning back, no turning back.”

I have been moved by their witness, you see. I will decide each day a-new, to follow Jesus – “Yes, I believe!” He met me when I was torn up and battered and a mess all inside. He healed me and He filled me with His Spirit beside! I am not courageous on my own, not one bit- but I will make the decision to stand, and take hold of His hand and walk one step, by each step! I will not be paralyzed by fear, nor step back – I have decided to follow Jesus, no turning back, no turning back!
