Jesus, All For Jesus

 

Yesterday we sang a song during our weekend worship services that truly captured the heart and message of the book of Hebrews – “Jesus, All for Jesus”

Jesus, all for Jesus,
All I am and have and ever hope to be.
Jesus, all for Jesus,
All I am and have and ever hope to be.

All of my ambitions, hopes and plans
I surrender these into Your hands.
All of my ambitions, hopes and plans
I surrender these into Your hands.

For it’s only in Your will that I am free,
For it’s only in Your will that I am free,
Jesus, all for Jesus,
All I am and have and ever hope to be.

As we pursue a vision of the supremacy of Christ in all things, this is what it looks like… surrendering all of our ambitions, hopes, and plans to Jesus, knowing that it’s only in His will that we are truly free. Where are those areas of your life where you’re giving Him free reign? Ask for more of Him in those areas. And where are the areas where you have yet to give Him lordship? It’s not as if He needs it, but give Him full permission to take over all of your life. Jesus is either Lord of all or not Lord at all. As we walk with Him, through Him, and for Him, those areas of become increasingly apparent and painful and we long for His grace and presence in every place of our heart and lives. “Jesus, all for Jesus. All I am and have and ever hope to be.”

  1. Thanks for the encouragement! Loved this blog entry and the message last night. I will miss Hebrews. Great book! But…looking forward to the 2 new series coming up. 🙂 With the state of the world right now, I think Ecclesiastes will be timely book to study.

  2. thanks janine… i will miss hebrews as well. it’s always a bit sad putting my commentaries from a particular book back on the shelf after they’ve been on my desk for 4 months. but I’m looking forward to exploring and preaching ecclesiastes this summer as well.
