Thank You, Jesus!

On this, of all days, we should express our deepest and most heart-felt thanks to Him for all He did for us some 1,981 years ago when He CHOSE to go to crucify His flesh in Gethsemane so that He would go to the Cross for us. He chose to be whipped, beaten into nonrecognition, and then to bear the greatest shame known at that time: being hung on the cross naked.

Why did He do all of this?  Love.  For me, and love for you.


He did that for you then.  Before you were born.  Nothing you do is a surprise to Him.  He is not disappointed in you.  He is not mad at you.  HE LOVES YOU.

And He ALWAYS will.  period.

If you do not have a relationship with the one, true, living G-d, PLEASE click on the “Road To Jesus” tab to the right and read that article.

He IS risen, alive and doing well.  And oh, how I love Him!  And He loves me.  AND YOU.  Yup.  And exactly as you are.

He is waiting with outstretched, open arms for you to turn to Him.  What are you waiting for?  Why not today?  I promise, you won’t be sorry.  He truly is worth it.

For YOUR sake, just say “Yes!”

Come to know His deep, abiding, UNCONDITIONAL, never-failing love for you.  Yes, you.  It doesn’t matter what you have done.  He wasn’t surprised when you did it.  He knew it was coming.  He will forgive that.

If God loved you enough to become Jesus so that He could come to Earth and die on the cross to pay the price so He could have a close personal relationship with you, how can you think you are not good enough for Him?  He says you are.  Yes, just like you are.  JUST like you are, right now, this very second.

You are EXACTLY what He wants.

You will never surprise Him.  He knows the end from the beginning.  And He always has and always will love you.  No matter what you do , think, or say.  HE LOVES YOU.  YOU.  Yes, YOU!!!!!!!  JUST LIKE YOU ARE!!!!

Mat 11:28-30 KJV
(28) Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
(29) Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
(30) For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

That is written in red because Jesus said it.  And He meant it.

Just call on Him.  He will never let you down.  He will never drop the ball for you.  You can trust Him, confide in Him, lean on Him, and come to truly know Him.  And His love.  And Grace, and mercy.

He has what you need.

You only have to ask.

So go ahead, call on His name, and know that He will hear you and move on your behalf.  He will never leave you or turn on you.  He loves you.

And He is waiting for you to say yes.  Won’t you.  Now.

(16) For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
(17) For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.                John 3:16-17


EVEN you.

Just say, “Yes!”  He is worth it.

And so are you.
