Day 30: Other than

Day 30: Other than

31 Days of Intimacy with my Savior
… and now for the vowels

For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the Spirit you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted …”
—2 Corinthians 11:4 (NIV)

There is no god other than the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. He is perfect. He is God unlike any other gods. He is Jesus.

No god wants an intimate relationship or friendship with his created except Jesus. We were created to love Him. By design we were created by, of and for Him. He made me perfectly whole because He is perfectly whole.

Jesus is the Alpha and Omega, the first and the last. He was there long before the beginning and will be around long after this world is destroyed.

He, Himself, is uncreated and self existent. He created time so I can spend eternity with Him. There is no god like my redemptive God who is Jesus. He paid the price for my sins before I ever existed. Can any other god boast this? Nope.

He is the Great I Am. He is “I am (fill in the blank).” He is faithful, merciful, strong, mighty, powerful, majestic. His majesty and power overwhelm my senses like no other.

Unlike those who murder people who don’t follow their so-called god, Jesus doesn’t seek to steal, kill or destroy rather to increase, give life and build up in Him. His hope is all would come before Him voluntarily and accept His precious gift of eternal life.

His Majesty
Go to a national park and experience His majesty. He is the God of the mountains. He abundantly satisfies and supplies all manner of blessing. My cup runs over because He filled it. Can’t no god do me like Jesus.

The only thing standing in the way of my relationship with The Lord of Heaven and Earth is myself. He is chasing those who don’t know Him like He chased me. He’s relentless, tireless, will not be satisfied until I turn and embrace Him wholeheartedly.

I get to have a deep friendship with this all-consuming God. I have the inside track because He is unlike anything or anyone I’ve ever known, and He desires me. What other god desires murderers, prostitutes, atheists, gay people, straight people, pedophiles, rapists, thieves, racists, brokenhearted, hard-hearted, witches, witchdoctors?

Yes, my God is other than anything I can ask, hope or imagine. His name is Jesus and He is mine forever. He can be yours too. Just ask Him.
