Why Do I Dig Jesus?

July 6th, 2007 · 14 Comments

Why Do I Dig Jesus? A Cup of Tea With Me wants to know.

I didn’t know that there was a Jesus meme, but apparently there is and I’ve been tagged for it. That’s okay, because I do “dig” Jesus. (I actually don’t use the word “dig” much, except when referring to the digg site. I’d say love.)

Here are the rules:

  • Those tagged will share 5 things they dig about Jesus.
  • Those tagged will tag 5 other bloggers.
  • Those tagged will provide a link in the comments section here with their name so that others can read them.

Here are the five things that I love about Jesus:

  • I love Him because He first loved me. Romans 5:8
  • I love Him because He walks with me through the valley of the shadow of death. Psalm 23:4 (I got to experience this firsthand last Winter as I sat by my Dad’s bed as he lay dying.)
  • I love Him because He gives me strength. Philippians 4:13
  • I love Him because He is always with me. Matthew 28:20
  • I love Him because He is holy. Psalm 99:9

Now it is my turn to tag five more bloggers:

    Wonderful list. I just love the scripture references too!

    Like you, I do not normally use the word “dig”. Well, I did back in the ’70s, but I do not anymore. 😉

    Anyway, thanks for participating. I really enjoyed reading your list.

    Thanks Melly! Yeah, I used the word “dig” in the ’70s (should I admit to being alive back then?), but I can’t remember the last time I actually used it in normal conversation.

    I use the word “dig,” but only in a self-ironic, post-modern way 😉 .

    Sunday seems like a good day to “dig” Jesus, so I’ll get my response up then!

    Hi MamaBlogga and Angel Mama!

    I loved your posts. Thanks for contributing.

    Wonderful list Laura. I especially like the first one- in the end, it is THE reason we love Jesus. We couldn’t even begin to love Him if He did not first love us and turn our hearts toward Him.

    Thanks Randa! You are so right.

    I LOVE your list and scripture references! ANY day is a Wonderful Day to digg Jesus, not just Sunday as one commented… I will “digg” and honor and worship Jesus Everyday of my life.

    Thank you for this post. Isn’t our God a Good God??!
