Mission Statement

In classical sacrifices, the people get the good bits, and the gods get the refuse, the bits that would get thrown out otherwise.

Not our God. Leviticus (particularly Leviticus 3) describes the sacrifices that our LORD demanded from His people of Israel. God gets the kidneys, the tail, and all the fat. He gets the prime steak, He gets the best.

Today we do not literally give sacrifices of animals. For us the ultimate sacrifice has been made through our Lord, Christ Jesus. But should always be our ambition to do the same thing - to offer God the best of what we have, to offer Him the fat, and not the smoke and bones.

Why Jesus is Better than a Boyfriend

Yes, the title isn't the most reverent perhaps. But I have been thinking about it now that several of my friends are in various stages of courtship. It is easy for me to feel lonely or left out, especially as I want so much to be married. So I thought I'd make this list. It has 25 items, because I'm 25 years old!

1. Jesus died for me. Most boyfriends won't.
2. Jesus loves me.
3. Jesus is always right.
4. He's paying for the wedding. (See the book of Revelation.) :P
5. He's also giving me a city to live in.
6. If Jesus keeps me awake all night talking, he'll give me energy to get through the next day... unlike some people's boyfriends.
7. Jesus thinks that I am most beautiful when I show a meek and quiet spirit.
8. He wrote me one massive love letter.
9. He has given me beautiful clothing... and this kind of white looks good on me.
10. He's always ready to listen to me.
11. He's actually interested in my problems.
12. He can solve my problems, and He'll do it whenever I ask.
13. He provides for me.
14. He loves kids even more than me!
15. He counts even the hairs on my head.
16. He likes me to talk to total strangers about Him.
17. Other people are able to listen to me wax eloquent about Jesus and not be completely (but politely) bored. (Unless they're not Christian).
18. I can talk about how wonderful Jesus is in front of the whole church. Boyfriends can only be talked about in front of the whole church when you get engaged, married, have a baby, or if it's Valentine's day.
19. When I start looking like Him, it's a good thing.
20. He think's grey hair is a crown. Well, it's not neccessary now, but I like to think ahead.
21. He makes sure that everything works together for my good.
22. He has promised to never leave me, nor forsake me. Boyfriends and husbands leave, even if it's just to go to work.
23. I ignored Him for years, and He STILL loves me!
24. He literally keeps me alive.
25. He gave me the entire world to enjoy and to take dominion of for Him!

Was there ever anyone to compare, with this, my Jesus!

I agree. Jesus rocks and is better than all boyfriends.

It means more coming from me though. You're a boy.

As long as we don't have to sing "Jesus is my girlfriend" songs.
