Jesus Is Lord


Jesus said unto her, 
I am the resurrection, and the life: 
he that believeth in me, though he were dead, 
yet shall he live:
And whosoever liveth and believeth in me 
shall never die. 
Believest thou this?
- John 11: 25-26 -




"Jesus is Lord"-
the cry that echoes through creation;
Resplendent power, eternal Word, our Rock.
The Son of God,
the King whose glory fills the heavens,
Yet bids us come to taste this living Bread.

"Jesus is Lord"-
whose voice sustains the stars and planets,
Yet in His wisdom laid aside His crown.
Jesus the Man,
who washed our feet, who bore our suffering,
Became a curse to bring salvation's plan.

"Jesus is Lord"-
the tomb is gloriously empty!
Not even death could crush this King of Love!
The price is paid, 
the chains are loosed, and we're forgiven,
And we can run into the arms of God.

"Jesus is Lord"-
a shout of joy, a cry of anguish,
As He returns and every knee bows low.
Then every eye
and every heart will see His glory;
The Judge of all will take His children home.
- Keith Getty and Stuart Townend -




Not saved are we by trying,
from self can come no aid;
'Tis on the blood relying,
once for our ransom paid.
'Tis looking unto Jesus,
the holy one and just;
'Tis His grace that saves me-
it is not 'try' but trust!
- Anonymous -


Life with Christ is an endless hope;
without Him a hopeless end.

Blessings to you on this glorious Lord's Day!

You have blessed me today! Love the quote on hope.

Karen@Southern Gal Meets Midwest said...

Yes, Jesus is Lord and he is the "only way" we spend eternity in heaven. Our pastor spoke on this today...definitely not coincidence :)

Wanda said...

Jesus the One and Only, and how you have lifted Him up in this wonderful post. I loved reading that it is nothing WE can ever do, it's all about HIS grace and mercy. Love you dear Stephanie.

Mari said...

Beautiful photos and words today Stephanie. Thank you!

You have created a beautiful post with the truth of Scripture. There is nothing more important to know. Seems that most of the hymn writers were students of The Word and lovers of The Lord. Exquisite photographs!

Jesus is LORD! The only Hope for the world.

Have a blessed week, friend.

Amy said...

Good Morning Stephanie! Those are breathtaking photos you took. And your post goes right along with each one. Kinda like a story is being told. Very stunning! I hope you had a great weekend. Ours was busy, trying to get some yard work done. Now all we need is some rain. It is so dry here. And the Spring winds are blowing like crazy today.

We got a puppy, so now we are in the season of training and loving on Miss Daisy. Day time is wonderful, but night time puppy time is hard. I like my sleep. I haven't had to be up with a baby in 7 years. :) I told my boys that they can pup-sit at night since she sleeps in a crate in their room. Mom needs sleep or look out. Ha!

Enjoy your week!
Hugs, Amy
