To those who trust in him for salvation, Jesus will never say:

“Go play somewhere; I’m busy.”

“Fake it til you make it.”

“I just don’t think it’s gonna work out between us.”

“I knew you were a screw-up, but this one really surprised me.”

“It’s too late.”

“I don’t care.”

“My assistant will get back to you on that.”

“We’re through.”

“I need some ‘me time’ right now.”

“I just ‘can’t’ right now.”

“I feel like I’m doing all the giving; what have you done for me lately?”

“Yeah, good job on ___________, but what about ____________?”

“I’ll be glad to help if you’ll ‘let’ me.”

“I can’t bless you until you release my power with positive words.”

“Who are you, again?”

“Beat it.”

  1. Very good, Jared! Actually, taken from real life.

  2. Jared, I absolutely love this! Thanks for posting. I’m glad he also would not say “get back to me when you are caught up on your Bible reading plan.”

    “Who are you, again?”

    AMEN You alone know the hearts of all the sons of men; You see us and You examine our heart’s attitude toward You. Can a woman forget her nursing child and have no compassion on the son of her womb? Even these may forget, but You will not forget us; you have inscribed us on the palms of Your hands

    1 O LORD, You have searched me and known me.2 You know when I sit down and when I rise up; You understand my thought from afar.3 You scrutinize my path and my lying down, and are intimately acquainted with all my ways.4 Even before there is a word on my tongue, Behold, O LORD, You know it all.5 You have enclosed me behind and before, and laid Your hand upon me.6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is too high, I cannot attain to it.7 Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence?8 If I ascend to heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, You are there.9 If I take the wings of the dawn, if I dwell in the remotest part of the sea,10 Even there Your hand will lead me, and Your right hand will lay hold of me.11 If I say, “Surely the darkness will overwhelm me, and the light around me will be night,”12 Even the darkness is not dark to You, and the night is as bright as the day. Darkness and light are alike to You.13 For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb.14 I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, and my soul knows it very well.15 My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth;16 Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; and in Your book were all written; The days that were ordained for me, when as yet there was not one of them.17 How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them! 18 If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand. When I awake, I am still with You. 23Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my anxious thoughts;24 And see if there be any hurtful way in me, and lead me in the everlasting way! Ps 139

  4. John says:

    He knows my name- me……that’s the one that always grabs me. Before my grandfather was born, before America declared independence, before the Ming dynasty, before the bronze age, before Adam and Eve walked in the garden, Jesus knew me, loved me, and planned to die for me.

  5. Ben Read says:

    The one I’m having to remember he will never say right now is “I have no plan for you.” Thanks for this, and all your other writings.
