Jesus, Our Only Option (Part 1)
Posted on June 29, 2020 by Catey Stover in Freedom Fighters
For all things are yours; whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas, or the world or life or death, or things present or things to come – all are yours. And you are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s. 1 Corinthians 3:21-23
Is it just me, or does it seem that it is just getting crazier and crazier by the day?
It seems like our country is beginning to unravel at the seams, and apart from divine intervention, where are we going to be in just a few months.
My devotional reading has been so helpful, and it seems that every day there are such amazingly timely insights.
Roy Lessin wrote one of my favorite devotionals, Meet Me in the Meadow, and he shared several days of the topic, Jesus is our only option!!!
When Jesus is your only option it means:
The Scriptures are yours because they testify of Him and tell His story. The Father is yours because He reveals Himself to you through His Son. The Holy Spirit is yours because He has been sent to bring you the life of Jesus.
The Body of Christ is yours because he blesses you through His people. Heaven’s Angels are yours because He is the Captain of the heavenly host.
Ministry is yours because He has sent you into all the world to make Him known. Prayer is yours because He has given you access to the throne of God.
Forgiveness is yours because His blood is upon the mercy seat. Purity is yours because He is your sanctification.
Righteousness is yours because you are made the righteousness of God in Him. Liberty is yours because He has set your free from the power of sin.
Victory is yours because He has defeated the powers of darkness. Joy is yours because He has put a new song in your heart.
Rest is yours because He has placed His yoke upon you. Peace is yours because He has freed you from all condemnation.
Endurance is yours because His joy is your strength. Comfort is yours because His tender mercies cover you.
Purpose is yours because He guides you according to His well. Love is yours because your heart has been joined to His.
Covenant is yours because He claims you as His bride. Hope is yours because He has gone to prepare a place for you.
WHEN JESUS IS YOUR ONLY OPTION, ALL THINGS ARE YOURS, FOR JESUS IS ALL AND IN ALL!!!
Amen. Great list to read over and over. I will share some more of Roy’s powerful insights next week. Have a great week. I’d love to hear from you: email@example.com

Think About This: “The name of Jesus is the sum total of all delights. It is the music with which the bells of heaven ring; a song in the world; a matchless oratorio in two syllables; a gathering up of the hallelujahs of eternity in five letters.” – Charles Haddon Spurgeon
This Week’s Verse to Memorize: Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. 10 Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another –Romans 12:9-10
