For as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one side to the other, so will the Son of Man be in his day. Luke 17:24
But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings. Malachi 4:2

But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ . . . Galatians 6:14
For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. 1 Corinthians 2:2
Let the motto upon your whole ministry be - "Christ is All!" - Mather

"That's My King!" Who's Worthy Of Extravagant Devotion With Greatest Emotion For He Swallowed God's Fury Ocean And Rose To The Extreme Promotion!

We waste a lot
We waste time
We waste money
We waste God-given gifts
We waste opportunities
We even get wasted
We waste certain years of our lives
You may even waste your whole life
But you can't waste anything on Jesus!

We waste a lot
The Scribes and Pharisees viciously wasted the very Messiah their Scriptures spoke about
Jesus' disciples wasted an opportunity to rejoice in the value of their Master
Judas Iscariot wasted the very Savior Who chose him to be a disciple for 30 pieces of silver
But they don't know that you can't waste anything on Jesus!

We waste a lot
We waste time worrying when God says be anxious for nothing
We waste time fearing when God says fear not
We waste time sinning when God says redeem the time for the days are evil
We waste time doubting when Jesus says only believe
We waste time desiring when Jesus is the Desire of all nations
Because you can't waste anything on Jesus!

We waste a lot
We waste money and aren't even as concerned about the poor as Jesus' disciples
We waste money on lottery tickets
We waste money on illegal drugs and alcohol to get drunk
We waste money on pornography and prostitutes
We waste money on ourselves
But you can't waste anything on Jesus!

We waste a lot
We waste our purity on promiscuity
We waste our energy on anger
We waste our desires on coveting and comparing ourselves with others
We waste our relationships on love for me, myself, and I
We waste our holiness on rebellion
But you can't waste anything on Jesus!

We waste a lot
But this woman who anointed Jesus didn't waste one drop
She gave the best to Jesus; Shall you give your best to Jesus?
She gave the most expensive to Jesus; Shall you give the most expensive to Jesus?
She gave it all to Jesus;  Shall you give your all to Jesus?
She gave it only to Jesus; Shall you give your all to Jesus only?
Because Jesus is worthy of the best
Jesus is worthy of the most expensive
Jesus is worthy of our all in all for He is the all in all
And you can't waste anything on Jesus!

We waste a lot
But Jesus never wasted anything
He redeemed every part of every second of every time most effectively for the glory of His Father to save us from all of our wasted time
He maximized the use of money even though His money manager was a master deceiver and denier
He glorified God perfectly with His greatest gifts by giving them all up on that cross
He made the absolute maximum most of every opportunity to love the LORD His God will all of His heart, mind, soul, and strength, and to love His neighbor as Himself so that we might be saved
He was totally left as waste and wounded for our transgressions and absorbed the wrath of God on that cross in our place so that we might be forgiven
He rose up from the dead to save us from all our waste and to turn our wastefulness into wonderful redemption
So that now, because of the great love with which He loved us:  where our waste abounds His grace abounds all the more
For this reason and many more, you can't waste anything on Jesus!

We wasted a lot
But Jesus' life was wasted on that cross so that we might live to never waste again
Now we live for Him, and you can't waste anything on Jesus
Basic Christianity is extravagant devotion to our King
You'll waste no time on Jesus!
You'll waste no money on Jesus!
You'll waste no love on Jesus!
You'll waste no desire on Jesus!
You'll waste no devotion on Jesus!
You'll waste no commitment on Jesus!
You'll waste no obedience on Jesus!
You'll waste no sacrifice on Jesus!
You'll waste no delight on Jesus!
You'll waste no worship on Jesus!
Spend it all!  Spend it all!  Spend it all! Oh Christian spend it all on Jesus Christ!
He alone can forgive!
He alone can heal!
He alone can save!
He alone can satisfy!
He alone can fulfill every hope and dream and longing you've ever had times 10 Billion times 10 Billion!
Come and taste and see that He is good!
Because you can't waste anything on Jesus!
