God touches me

The Soaring Eagle

“While Jesus was in one of the towns, a man came along who was covered with leprosy. When he saw Jesus, he fell with his face to the ground and begged him, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.” Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” And immediately the leprosy left him”
(Luke 5:12-13)

Christ is All, in all who believe in Him.

“I am the bread of life: he that comes to me shall never hunger; and he that believes on me shall never thirst” – Jesus. (John 6:35)

When you bow the knee to Jesus Christ and confess Him as your LORD and Savior, He comes to dwell in your heart because of your faith in His Truth.

When He comes to dwell in you, He rules.

He presides over your thoughts, your will, and your emotions – all of you – your whole being. He loves you, and He wouldn’t have it any other way.

He is all you need in this life.

“But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification…
