Do You Really Believe in Jesus?

Updated: Jan 28


My Arms.

When I am asked, "Do You Really Believe in Jesus?"

I want to say, "Who else did you have in mind?"


Today, October 9th, 2017, I turned 60.


For 45 of those years,

I have tried to practiced the teachings of Jesus and attempted to imitated His lifestyle.

Some years were better than others.

Some years — well let's say I didn't try enough to cooperate with grace.


Yesterday, Sunday morning, I was writing a talk on 2 Chronicles 31–36.

While I wrote, I listened to some of my favorite hymns:

Be Thou My Vision,

Con Que Pagaremos,

Pass Me Not,

I Will Praise Him, Still, and others.


Different hymns speak to me at different levels.

But yesterday morning,October 8th, the day before I turned 60, the last stanza of

O' Sacred Head, Now Wounded, is what spoke to me the most.

Here it is.

Enjoy.


What language shall I borrow

To thank Thee, dearest Friend,

For this Thy dying sorrow,

Thy pity without end?

O make me Thine forever,

And should I fainting be,

Lord, let me never, never

Outlive my love for Thee.


Dear Jesus, grant me this prayer.
