H.B. A! & Jesus Be The Centre!

Before I begin today's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I would like to wish my grandson A, a very Happy Birthday!  I pray that God will bless you with a fabulous, special day.  Always remember that Jesus loves you... and so does Grandma!  xoxo

Just like other SONday's here on LwL, I discuss the fact that today is a day of worship.

Like other Lord's days, I'll be heading to worship at Walkerville Evangelical Baptist Church, here in Windsor.  And, I'll enjoy worshipping in spirit, and in truth.  Both with traditional worship, and through music.

Someone I know, who is on Facebook, recently posted a song that I had never heard before.  Thank you for posting this!  It struck a cord in my heart, upon hearing it.

Here is the song I adore, sung by Robin Mark entitled, (Jesus) Be The Centrehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EG-l1kK-BpU&list=RD02TqCMTkSqv4I

Jesus Be The Centre

Jesus, be the centre
Be my source, be my light
Jesus

Jesus, be the centre
Be my hope, be my song
Jesus

(Chorus)
Be the fire in my heart
Be the wind in these sails
Be the reason that I live
Jesus, Jesus

Oh Jesus, be my vision
Be my path, be my guide
Jesus


Oh Jesus, be my vision
Be my path, be my guide
Jesus

 (Chorus)
Be the fire in my heart
Be the wind in these sails
Be the reason that I live
Jesus, Jesus

(Instrumental solo)

 (Chorus)
Be the fire in my heart
Be the wind in these sails
Be the reason that I live
Jesus, Jesus

 (Chorus)
Be the fire in my heart
Be the wind in these sails
Be the reason that I live
Jesus, Jesus


Jesus, be the centre
Be my source, be my light
Jesus


Jesus... is the fire in my heart!  He's everything to me!

Just thinking about being hot for the Lord, brought to mind Revelation 3:15-16, " I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.  So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth."

Believe me when I say I've been condemned for being on fire for the Lord. 

People have said things like I think too much about Jesus and Christianity.  And, I've been called a Bible thumper by some, also.

Truly, it matters not to me how other people think of me. 

The truth is... nothing matters but my Lord, Jesus Christ.  Without Him, I am nothing.  And, neither are you.

Just like He said, there are some that He would consider to be lukewarm.  Like some people who consider themselves Christian, yet do nothing for the Lord.  Or very little.

Those are the people I feel worst about. 

After all, those who are cold in the Lord, will probably remain unsaved and may be thrown into the Lake of Fire, upon judgement day.  And, those who are hot/on fire for the Lord, who are truly saved, and do everything they can for our Lord, will receive heaven for eternity.

But, those who consider themselves to be worthy, yet aren't because they don't do anything to honour Him, I feel badly for.  It is these people who Jesus will spew out.

It is these people, who think they will end up in heaven, but may have been taught improperly, only to find they don't.

After all, are they on fire for the Lord if they don't honour Jesus and work for Him?  What about if they don't read their Bible and learn what God expects of them?  Or, care about anything to do with Christianity and worship?

Words can come cheap, but God knows our heart.  He told us to love Him with all our heart, soul, mind and spirit.

Hopefully, you will come to Christ, if you haven't already.  And, read God's Word so you can find out for yourself that you are expected to be on fire for Him!


Until next time...
