Jesus has reached the mark, set, and opened His mouth. Here we go! Now is the time to be blessed as only truth, love, and freedom can bless.
What Jesus says gives liberty. What Jesus says gives self-acceptance with worth. What Jesus says gives power to forgive. What Jesus says gives God’s wisdom. What Jesus says gives peace to pass human understanding. What Jesus says gives courage in the midst of, and in the face of, raging storms. What Jesus says gives love. This is not the temporal self-absorbing love, but the true, everlasting, never failing love. What Jesus says gives faith—incredible, phenomenal, mountain moving!
There is nothing namby-pamby about Jesus or His teachings. He brings real answers for real people with real problems. Jesus brings strong truth for weak people who need real help. He brings tough love that doesn’t coddle or pamper, but compassionately stays until the hurt is soothed and healing has come.
