We Are So Worth The Blood Of Jesus

 

 

 

 

 

Twelve years ago, Easter Sunday, I responded to an altar call to receive Christ into my life.

I had been a Christian for over 50 years. With breathless anticipation, I jumped to my feet and then noticed Mary also standing beside me. I’d never heard a Gospel like this.

The guy up front had just told me how worthy I was of the blood of Jesus. Ha! He said that I was enough and for a brief moment I dared to believe.

I had long since left the ministry. I had long since left the church. And I had long since left 99% of the Bible. The only portions I read were the promises. And I had landed on five chapters in John, 13 through 17. Every day my prayer was “Father, this is Your promise and this is my life, which looks nothing like what You promised here.”

I had spent 58 years of my life on a religious treadmill trying to become something that I already was; trying to earn a gift. I had never heard that I was worthy and that I was enough, except on rare occasions when at the bottom of the rope I would hear Jesus’ sweet voice telling me He loved me.

I had lived with myself long enough to know that was too good to be true.

Since that Easter, over the last twelve years, day by day, moment by moment, I’m discovering how worthy I am. I’m discovering how righteous I am, how holy I am, how lovely I am, how pleased He is with me!

Yes, there are still moments of relapse, when I forget, but they are fewer and farther between.

As my friend, Dan Mohler says, “I am so worthy of the blood of Jesus.” He loves me! And it’s never ever had anything to do with my behavior or performance. I am enough!

And so are you!

I love Easter but as my friend, François Du Toit writes “Every sunrise is a reminder of the resurrection!”

Yes!

Both His resurrection and ours!

You are so worth the blood of Jesus today!

Love you, Lloyd.

I’ve often described how leading A Family Story these past years has felt much like exploring the best route up a mountain while people are following you.

It’s been an exhilarating adventure filled with joy, breakthrough, and revelation. It’s also had its share of wrong turns and backtracking.

It can be a challenge to cast vision while backtracking. But there has been nothing more transformational than the goodness of God we’ve discovered through pioneering!

RANDALL WORLEY / Questioning My Answers

Randall Worley talks about having a “beginner’s mind,” faith while embracing mystery, pioneering and the nature of heresy, the limits of language, approaching scripture through love, and the importance of remaining curious while understanding that God is not insecure or defensive when we raise hard questions.

Mom

My heel struck the garage door and with one last hysterical push, I willed the car to stop… and it did. The front bumper came to rest against my chest, my back against the garage door. I had done it!! The euphoria, the victory, I had saved the day! I would be touted as a hero, thanked by my Dad and praised by my Mom… Mom was screaming… mom is screaming. Mom is mad… at me?

Heaven and Hell (Part 2)

Everything is a matter of perspective. If we perceive light through unhealthy eyes we will see darkness. If we perceive truth through unhealthy eyes we will see lies. God is love and His love is sovereign, but if we see love through the lens of control we will experience striving and desperation.
