Seven beautiful words. Seven life-straightening words. Setting again the North Star. Putting us in the sure place of His Sovereignty.
Let us not settle for a Jesus for any of the following reasons:
a removal of guilt
a cleaning up of life
a physical or emotional healing
a restoration of relationship
a currying of favour or forgiveness
an end to abusive habits
It must be Jesus for himself alone. And he becomes the gyroscope settling the ship in any kind of weather. It is not to have this or that. It is to have Him.
