My Jesus

My Jesus is the . . .

Light of the World, so I will invite His warmth and radiance into all the dark and cold places of my life that He might expose and remove my sin and selfishness.
Only Wise God, so I can boldly ask and receive from Him necessary insight, guidance and direction for my life today.
Rock of my Salvation, so I will rest secure and safe, knowing that He has already done everything to save me and to keep me in His love forever.
Desire of all Nations, so I will passionately proclaim his truth and beauty in every place, expressing to others the delight I have found in Him.

Justifier, so I do not have to work today to be accepted by God, but can simply live in the grace that has made me pure and lovely in His sight.
Emmanuel, so I will enjoy and practice His wonderful presence in my life today, knowing that He is with me always.
Strength of My Soul, so I come to Him in humility, delighting in my weaknesses, that His power may be demonstrated through me in every situation I encounter.
Unchanging Friend, so I will enjoy his faithful companionship and rest securely in his always-reliable love and commitment to me.
Savior, so I will kneel before His cross in grateful worship and will live by faith in the One who loved me and gave Himself for me.

Cornerstone, so I will confidently base my well-being on the truth of who He is and allow Him to build my life by His strength and stability.
Healer of my Soul, so I will come to him in with all my hurts, disappointments and fears to receive His supernatural touch of wholeness, encouragement and peace.
Resurrection and the Life, so I will let Him live through me today in the triumph He has already achieved over all sin and death.
Image of the Invisible God, so I will draw near and gaze upon Him in intimacy today that He might reveal the fullness of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit to my heart.
Shield of my Salvation, so I will trust Him today to protect my faith and to preserve my life in Him by His promise and power.
Truth, so I will come to Him with all my doubts and questions, receiving counsel from His reliable word and consolation from His Spirit in order to live with confidence in this world.
