More of Him

More of Him Monday. I like the sound of that. I really do! I ran across this meme while blog hopping and got excited! Chances are I won’t agree with everything I read, but I like the idea of sharing insight on scripture and learning about other's blessings. So I’m giving this meme a try!

Scripture Speaks
I enjoyed all the prophecy about Jesus in Isaiah, and I am glad to see some in Jeremiah. (Still working on my first trip through the entire bible.) Last week I read in Jeremiah 23:

[3] And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase.

[4] And I will set up shepherds over them which shall feed them: and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall they be lacking, saith the LORD.

[5] Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.

[6] In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.
The promised King, Jesus, reigns in my heart today. Those who receive His precious gift of Salvation are bearing fruit – doing work for Him and multiplying – spreading the gospel message all over the world, bringing others to Christ. I have the hope of eternal life and don’t fear death. He provides all my needs, both spiritual and physical. My righteousness was as filthy rags. I could never be good enough for heaven with sin in my heart, but my sins have been washed away by the blood of Jesus. Now, He is my righteousness. Thank you, Jesus!

Great thoughts, Farrah! So many promises that we can find in the Old Testament prophecies, and we should cling to each one.

I'm so glad you joined in with More of Him.
