What Death

“This He spoke, signifying by what death he would glorify God. And when He had spoken this, He said to him, ‘Follow Me’.”  John 21:19. NKJV

Even our deaths can bring Him glory.

Thank You, Lord, for making a way for us to glorify You, no matter what. And here is a simple poem . . .

Lord, You know I love You
as best as I can

am trying to feed Your sheep
and take care of your lambs

so oh what a comfort
that my death will have no sting

but be another opportunity
to glorify my King.

God bless you as you love Him and follow Him today!

Blessed To Believe

 

 

“Jesus said to him, ‘Thomas, because you have seen me, you have believed.  Blessed are those who have not seen, and yet have believed.'” John 20:29  NKJV

“And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book; 

but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.”  John 20:30-31  NKJV

that we may believe

that Jesus is
the Christ
