You are the first
You are the last
You are the present
You are the past

You are my soul
You are my light
You are my life raft
You are my knight

New mercies each day
You have given to me
Because of You
I believe

Even though
I miss the mark
And sin pulls us
Farther apart

You make me strong
You never let me go
I know this because
You love me so.
Have you ever thought how good Jesus has been good to you? How He's protected you from every seen and unseen danger? How He woke you up this morning and brought you home safely? There's no way we can repay Him...Jesus has done so much for everyone. Even though we sin against Him, Jesus still loves us.

Inspired by Newsboys Blessed Be Your Name.

No, I haven't thought about how Jesus has been protecting us. If he is he's doing and awful job.

No,I haven't thought about how he woke me up this morning. My alarm woke me up.

You're right about how we can't repay him. For two reasons. One, to repay someone the person you're repaying must have given you goods or services first (hence the 're' in repay), and two the person being re-payed has to have substance and he/she/it/ needs to be real.

You have claimed three things in this statement: God is not real, God does not deserve/is not worthy of our praise, and he hasn't done anything for us. Let me tell you now that God isn't going to walk into your room one day and decide to live in your heart. You need to invite him in, and you need to know he isn't going to make your life a trip down the rainbow road. Things happen. People will. Die. I know this because I have seen it. But does that mean you can just push him away? Does that mean he is worth nothing? It doesn't, and it will never, as long as I live and breath on this world.
GoodThinker Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Does him doing little to nothing for me make him worth nothing? No. Does he need to be real to have any worth? Yes.
You say that I need to invite him into my heart, that I have to do something to let him in. But the way I see it, he is portrayed as an all powerful and omnipresent being, so assuming he is real, he'd already be in my heart. Haha, that was a joke.
But in all seriousness, the fact that no evidence except for a book written during the times of the Romans (Where the Romans decided which stories to and to not put into the Bible) has been given for god leads to the conclusion that he's probably not really there. Science and reason dispute so many of the things the Bible says.
Also, I think it's a little ridiculous that you believe, and this is not meant to be insulting, that an all powerful, all knowing, omnipresent being is flying around in the clouds granting wishes, like finding car keys, to the good little Christians but then eternally damning those that don't believe in him, or even believe in a wrong type of him, to a burning torture for all eternity as punishment (even though the fact that it's an eternity doesn't really qualify it as a punishment because the recipient of the so called punishment can never use what he learned) even though he's made it impossible to learn about him except through corruptible words, and then saying that he loves us all. You could argue "tough love," but I could also argue psychotic sociopath.
And I'll be damned (haha) if he is real. If when I die I go and see the big guy, I won't beg. I won't ask for forgiveness. All I will do is simply walk up to him, stare him in his big ol' eyes, and ask him why. Why did he do all of this? Why did he kill so many people through such awful means? I will ask him how an all-good being, that hasn't an inch of wrong in him, would let so much torture and suffering to go on, and why he himself had done so much himself. And then I'd ask some of the basic, less philosophical questions.

I'm sorry if my response was a little "much" and long.

God loves you. That's all I can and am going to say. The choice is yours, and nobody is going to force you to choose.
GoodThinker Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist

hello there, i think this around all religion topics : the only thing that matter is the message God and Jesus tell us, this message of peace and love and love the world  
this things, don't think too much in the man or is true or not because in that case it's kinda inpossible to know 
GoodThinker Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Can you please rephrase your message because I can't really understand it.

He still hugs us no matter how we've pushed him around.No matter how much we disspise him he looks at us and sees some worth pane,worth dying,worth having a friend turn his back on him and pretend he didn't even know him.Yet he loves us,hugs us,and looks at us like there's nothing to judge about.
