I'm Glad Jesus Saved Me

All scripture references, unless otherwise noted, are from the King James Version of the Holy Bible. 
For a Christian the title of this posting has got to be the understatement of the year. Never-the-less I am thankful for His so great salvation. I could not save myself and neither could you. No, we cannot save ourselves. When I pastored in Tigard, Oregon, I remember asking the church if any wanted to go to heaven. Every hand went up. A foolish question you say. My next question to them was how did they think they were going to get there? They were only going to get to heaven if the Lord Jesus would get them there. We were all sinners when Jesus found us. The Bible says in Romans 3:23"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." We all, "were by nature the children of wrath, even as others."  It was the richness of God's, "mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins..." that Jesus Christ gave us hope. (See  Ephesians 2:1-5)

There may be those who take the mercy of God for granted. He wasn't obligated to us. Yes He came into this world to save us because He loves us.  John 3:16 probably the best known and loved Scripture among Christians says, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." That isn't all that the Scripture says though. Remember that the Lord was talking to Nicodemus a Jewish leader who could not understand the concept, that he  "must be born again." (See John 3:3-5) The Lord ended His conversation with Nicodemus with these words in John 3:19-21, "And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.  For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God." So just because God loves us doesn't mean that we are saved.

The Lord Jesus said in Mark 13:19-20"For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be. And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days." Was the Lord speaking of Israel Here? Or was he speaking of the church? In about 70 AD the Romans attacked and defeated the Jewish nation. But the Lord spoke in Mark 13:22 of the rise of false prophets and false Christs, and in Matthew 24:24 said, "if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect." I don't know who was intended here but it seems that along with other passages we could include the church in the elect of God. If the church is meant here, what the Lord was saying, was, that those who put their trust in Jesus Christ could be deceived as the elect of God, "if it were possible."

Friend, I would suggest that you not take the Scriptures too lightly. The Apostle Paul said in 1st Corinthians 10:12, "Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall." I don't believe that any of these things were said to frighten us but rather to make us, "strong in the Lord and in the power of His might." I for one don't intend to give in to the wiles of Satan, but as I told the Lord Jesus the day He saved me, and I quote, "Lord Jesus if you will help me, I will serve you from this day to the day I die." (See Ephesians 6:10-11) How about you?

"And whatsoever ye do in word or deed...

All scripture references, unless otherwise noted, are from the King James Version of the Holy Bible. 
...do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him." When I first turned to God in 1965 and read the Bible for the first time, I found the above scripture in Colossians 3:17. As a child I went to Meeker grade school which was across the street from the Assemblies of God church. It said on their sign that they were Pentecostal so I assumed that that was my church. When I joined the Army in 1959 the army asked me what my religion was and I told them I was Pentecostal. They put on my dog tags PENT for my religious affiliation.  I never went to church so it probably didn't make any difference. It wasn't til I was 23 and truly turned to the Lord Jesus that I understood that Trinitarian and Oneness beliefs differ. Wow, do they ever!

My understanding of the Trinitarian belief is they do acknowledge that Jesus is God. However that belief is that He is one of three persons in the Godhead and He is often referred to as God the Son. The other persons in the Godhead are  God the Father and God the Holy Ghost. I think I had always believed that Jesus was God. At least from about age 5 or so. That would have been around 1946. There was a beautiful meteor shower that summer that everyone in the neighborhood was out standing in their yards oohing and awing over. I was also standing in our yard crying, My maternal grandmother who was a Holy Ghost filled Christian was visiting at the time. When she saw me crying she came over and knelt down beside me and asked me why I was crying. I told her because I was afraid. She comforted my heart by saying to not be afraid for it was just a sign that the Lord Jesus would return to take His church home one day. I didn't ever, from that time on, not believe in the Lord Jesus.

As I said in the first paragraph in Colossians 3:17 the Bible says. "And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him." Because the Lord Jesus told me to read His word, starting in Matthew, it wasn't hard for me to accept baptism in Jesus name. There are, no doubt, folks in the Assembly of God church that are baptized in Jesus name also. The Bible is clear in the issue of baptism. Jesus said in Mark 16:16"He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned." And that being baptized saves us the Apostle Peter said in 1st Peter 3:20b-21"...when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water. The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ..." But is it enough?

The Bible foretells in 2nd Thessalonians 1:7b-9 of the day, "when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power..." If my understanding is correct, one needs to not only be baptized but also to know the Lord. It will not do just to know about Him. One might say, But I do know the Lord. In Matthew 7:21-23 Jesus foretelling of the day of judgment said, "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity." What?

Friend of mine, do you know the Lord Jesus? He is not the second person of the Godhead as some believe. Rather the Bible plainly declares in Colossian 2:9-10 that, "...in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power..." He is more than the Man upstairs. He is the Lord of glory! The Bible says in 1st Corinthians 2:6-9,  "Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him." If the princes of this world had known who it was they were putting to death, the apostle said, "had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory." The Lord of Glory died for you. 

There is an old song I love, the chorus of which goes like this; 
          He's the Lord of Glory He is the Great I AM
          He's the Alpha and Omega the Beginning and the End.
          His name is Wonderful, the Prince of Peace is He.
          The Everlasting Father throughout Eternity.
Do you know Him as the Lord of Glory today?

The Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace

All scripture references, unless otherwise noted, are from the King James Version of the Holy Bible.
Isaiah 9:6 is certainly a wonderful passage of Scripture. But contrary to perhaps most Christians this is not relegated to just the Christmas season. It is true for all the year, every year and forever. Isaiah 9:5-7 gives a fuller picture of what the Bible is saying. "For every battle of the warrior is with confused noise, and garments rolled in blood; but this shall be with burning and fuel of fire. For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this." Reading these verses of the Old (Jewish) Testament makes me wonder if some in Jesus' day didn't wonder if the Jewish Sanhedrin knew that Jesus was the Messiah. The Bible says in John 7:25-26"Then said some of them of Jerusalem, Is not this he, whom they seek to kill? But, lo, he speaketh boldly, and they say nothing unto him. Do the rulers know indeed that this is the very Christ?"

It is somewhat amazing to me that there are no known descendants of King David today. I went to a Jewish Rabbi's site (http://www.aish.com/atr/Davidic-Line-Today.html) to see if they knew of any. The only thing I got from the site was the belief that the Messiah would be of David's lineage. How a Messiah could arise from David's line if the Jews don't even know of anyone living today who would meet that criteria. Jesus met the criteria in His being a descendant of King David. As I understand it, one of the reason's the Jews reject the Messiahship of Jesus is that Christians make Him God. This is nothing new, for in John 10:30-33, Jesus said, "I and my Father are one. Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me? The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God." To the Jews of His day it was blasphemy because in so saying that He and His Father were one He was essentially claiming deity. The Lord went on the say if they wouldn't believe Him for His words, they ought to believe Him for the works that He did. Instead they eventually crucified Him.

It is equally amazing to me that the majority of Christians, while they may profess that He is God, in works they deny Him. They believe that He is one of three persons in the Godhead while the Bible says in Deuteronomy 6:4, "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD..." And the Bible says in Colossians 2:9 that the Godhead dwells in Him. Further the Apostle Paul said in Colossians 2:10 that, "...ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power..." We have not been buried with them but with Him alone. (See Colossians 2:12) Let me say to any unbelieving Jewish person who may happen to read this posting, that Jesus wasn't just a man who claimed to be God but He was God and He made himself man in order to fulfill the Scripture and become our kinsman redeemer. To any Christian who may read this posting, if you haven't been baptized in Jesus name and obeyed what Apostle Peter said in Acts 2:38 you haven't been buried with Jesus the Messiah. (See also Colossians 3:17)

Where's There Life There is Hope

All scripture references, unless otherwise noted, are from the King James Version of the Holy Bible.
This was one of the sayings that my mother used to say. How true! Once an individual passes on there is no further hope for them unless they died in hope of, "a better resurrection." (See Hebrews 11:35) The Bible says in Ecclesiastes 11:3b, "... if the tree fall toward the south, or toward the north, in the place where the tree falleth, there it shall be." How imperative then does it behoove us to be ready to go. Well do I remember the days of my youth when I had no hope. I remember what I used to be. The Bible says in Isaiah 51:1, "Hearken to me, ye that follow after righteousness, ye that seek the LORD: look unto the rock whence ye are hewn, and to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged." When the Lord Jesus found us none of us were looking for Him. I thank God for putting hope in my heart.

None of us would have any hope if it had not been for Jesus Christ in our lives. Apostle Paul said in Romans 3:10"As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one..." He said in verse 23 of the same chapter,  "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God..." You were not righteous nor was I of ourselves. But it is the Lord's righteousness that saves us. The Apostle Paul said in Romans 5:21,  "That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord."

Why not take advantage of the hope that the Lord Jesus affords. The apostle went on to say in Romans 8:24-25,  "For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it." Which takes me to the title of this post, where there is life there is hope. If you have never truly put your trust in the Lord Jesus, let me encourage you to do so today. The Bible says in Jeremiah 17:7, "Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is." What a consolation that verse is to me. Let it be yours too.

Understanding the Godhead

All scripture references, unless otherwise noted, are from the King James Version of the Holy Bible. The Hebrew and Greek meaning of the words mentioned are from Strong's Hebrew-Greek Dictionary.
The Godhead is not difficult to understand. In the account of the Lord's meeting with the woman of Samaria, the woman said that the Jews say that Jerusalem was the place to worship God but the Samaritans said that Mt. Gerizim was the right place. The Lord Jesus told the woman of Samaria in John 4:21-24,  "...Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth." So we understand that in His basic nature, "God is a Spirit."

So what is a spirit? A spirit is an incorporeal being, without body, without a natural substance. The Mirriam-Webster online dictionary give several definitions, #2 says, 
": a supernatural being or essence: such as 
capitalized : HOLY SPIRIT
b : soul 2a
c : an often malevolent being that is bodiless but can become visible; specifally  :GHOST 2 
d : a malevolent being that enters and possesses a human being"
But what is a spirit. Is it breath? The Bible says in Luke 24:36-39 after His resurrection that "... Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit. And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts? Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have." So if Jesus told the woman of Samaria that God is a Spirit and He told His disciples after His resurrection that He wasn't a spirit does that mean that Jesus wasn't God? Not at all. Jesus in the flesh was the Jewish Messiah. Apostle Peter said when asked by the Lord in Matthew 16:15-17"...But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven."

A good understanding of the Godhead includes the understanding of the Man, Christ Jesus. Was Jesus God Almighty? In the Spirit, yes. In the flesh He was God's only begotten Son! In the flesh, through Mary, He was the One who was foretold in Deuteronomy 18:15 where Moses said, "The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken..." God confirmed what Moses said in Deuteronomy 18:17-19. Apostle Peter said in  Acts 3:22-23"For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people."

So how is the Lord Jesus God? Every Christian loves the passage found in John 14:1-3 where the Lord said, "Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also." But Jesus did not stop there. He said that they knew where He was going and they knew the way. It was at this point in John 14:5-7 that, "Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him."

They were having a hard time understanding the Lord. So in John 14:8-11,  "Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us. Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake." The Apostle Paul said in Romans 1:3b-4 that Jesus,  "...was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead..." Jesus was both the son of man and the Son of God. This fully agrees with the heavenly revelation that Peter received in Matthew 16:17.

Does this mean that God is a trinity of persons? Not at all! The Bible declares in Deuteronomy 6:4-5,  "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might." To the Trinitarian, the words of Moses here imply the unity of three persons in the one God. It is interesting to me that the Lord Jesus in quoting these verses used the Greek "heis," which according to Strong's Hebrew-Greek dictionary means numerical one. So it would seem that the Lord Jesus put forth the concept of there only being one God who He said was a Spirit.

The rest of the story. The New Testament was written by mostly Jewish writers, with the exception of Luke's Gospel, and they believed in the one God of Israel. They recognized the Messiahship of Jesus and knew the Messiah had to be from among their brethren. They also recognized that the Messiah was to be from the lineage of King David. What they perhaps did not understand before the resurrection was how the Messiah could be both God and man. But after the resurrection they recognized that Jesus was their God. In John 20:27-28, Jesus said, "...to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God." There can be little doubt that Thomas recognized in the resurrected Lord the one true and living God that he had always worshiped.

Apostle Paul wrote in Colossians 2:8-10a"Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him..." Also in 1st Timothy 3:16 Paul wrote, "And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory."

Friend, you ought not to let any man, "spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ," whether it be a preacher, priest or pope. In Jesus Christ the Messiah of God, God has chosen to permanently make His residence. Paul and the other apostles  recognized the Lord Jesus as  God Manifested in the flesh. Let me close with the final words of Jude 1:24-25,  "Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen."

In the Mood

All scripture references, unless otherwise noted, are from the King James Version of the Holy Bible. The Hebrew and Greek meaning of the words mentioned are from Strong's Hebrew Greek Dictionary.
A song that was still popular when I was a small kid was, "In The Mood," by the Glenn Miller band. You can still find it on the internet. Although I always liked what was known as the, "Big Band Sound," that is not the subject of this post. What I would like to talk about is the mood a good church service or good preaching puts me in. My wife and I recently watched a live church service on the internet. While the preacher poured his heart out to the church and to the sinner, I was almost moved to tears listening to the preaching.

I have listened to many sermons over the years. Some of them moved me to tears, some did not. I remember one evening service that happened not too long after I had given my heart to God. We had a brother in the church that was mightily used of God in giving messages in tongues and interpretation. On this particular night we seemed to be having a move of the Holy Ghost. Our pastor had been out sick with heart trouble and was in service that night but not yet fully recovered. He had asked the assistant pastor to preach. This man was as sweet natured as they come but he was not a particularly good preacher. The brother that was used in tongues and interpretation gave what seemed to be a message from the Lord. Someone in the back of the church said, "move Spirit move," At that point the pastor got up, took the pulpit, had everyone sit down and introduced the speaker. The assistant pastor preached for about 1/2 hour in his somewhat lackadaisical way, gave an altar call and, as I recall, sat down. I was very confused.  However you don't have to be in the mood for God to move in your life.

I went to the brother that had the gift of tongues and interpretation and asked him what had happened? I was sure that there should have been an interpretation of the message (remember I was young in the Lord at this time) and that perhaps the pastor had quenched to Spirit of God's moving in that service. What I was told opened my eyes. The brother that had the message in tongues told me that he had had the interpretation but wasn't allowed to give it. However he told me that the message that was preached that night was the message in tongues. I realized that God didn't allow the interpretation to be given because He had already anointed the assistant pastor with the message. Sometimes we look for what we think is a move of God and overlook the obvious. The Bible says in 1st Corinthians 1:21,  "For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe." Sometimes God will use a message in tongues and interpretation of the same to confirm the Word of God that was and is preached. But it is a rare occurrence when God will bypass the preaching of His Word.

It is no wonder then that the apostle taught in 1st Corinthians 14:5,  "I would that ye all spake with tongues, but rather that ye prophesied: for greater is he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues, except he interpret, that the church may receive edifying." So preaching, (the word prophesieth  according to Strong's Hebrew-Greek dictionary is, "prophēteuō (pronounced) prof-ate-yoo'-o From G4396; to foretell events, divine, speak under inspiration, exercise the prophetic office: - prophesy," Speaking under inspiration is better than speaking in tongues without the interpretation of what was said. If you won't respond to the plain preached Word of God, you probably wouldn't respond if there was a miraculous event take place either.

I love that chorus we used to sing (and sometimes still do), The Word of God is Right. It goes something like this;

The Word of God is right Hallelujah to the Lamb,
The Word of God is right Hallelujah to the Lamb, The Word of God is right Hallelujah to the Lamb,
Hallelujah to the Lamb!
The second stanza says, 
It makes me walk upright Hallelujah to the Lamb.

I am glad for the preaching of the Word of God, it truly does make me walk upright.

Choosing God's Way

All scripture references, unless otherwise noted, are from the King James Version of the Holy Bible. 
Sometimes that seems a hard choice for people. The Bible says in Isaiah 55:8-9"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts." They think that it is too hard to live that way. But listen to Isaiah 55:6-7"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon." God has never taken delight in "the death of the wicked." (See Ezekiel 33:11) Yes, God's ways are higher than our ways, but His way will save us in the end.

So if I choose God's ways, how am I to know how to conduct my life? In answer to that question, we know nothing about God except what is revealed in His Word. So knowing how to live for God is explained in the Word of God. It is in reading the Word of God that we begin to understand God's ways. Which brings me to the day of my conversion. 

I was 23 years old the day I turned to God. I had been reading the Reader's Digest about a woman who had made some prophetic utterances and claimed they were of God. I didn't know God then. It was then that the Lord spoke to me calling me by name. I didn't hear a audible voice or see a vision, I just knew that it was the Lord Jesus that was speaking. What He said to me that day was, and I quote, "What you are reading is somewhat the way it will be but she is not of Me." He further said to me, "the life you are living is leading you to death. You have a choice to make. Make Me your choice, I am the only reasonable choice you have." As I have said many times when the Lord said to me, "make Me your choice..." He spoke in the most unutterable tones of love! 

I had tried on my own to turn my life to God previously without success, so I spoke to the Lord and said, and again I quote, "Lord Jesus if you will help me I will serve you from this day to the day I die!" The Lord immediately cleansed my heart from all the profanity and vulgarity that had been so much a part of my life and that I had hated myself for. And He said, "Read My word and start in Matthew." I didn't fully understand it then, but the Lord Jesus was telling me how to live for Him successfully. That was 52+ years ago, and He has been my help ever since. 

Friend, if you have had a hard time in choosing God's way because the way seemed too hard, read His word! The Bible says in Isaiah 35:8''And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein." Someone might say that they do nothing but make mistakes. God will look upon you through the eyes of the Lord Jesus and see none. For He nailed them to His Cross at Calvary. Believe Him today. Cast your cares upon Him for He cares for you. (See 1st Peter 5:7)
