RE: Why I Dig Jesus

I got tagged for a meme that is spreading all over. I've spent more time exploring the links than thinking about the meme. Through that I've discovered a lot of blogs I didn't know about, including some Lutheran blogs. I've often said that I don't need any new hobbies. Ditto for new blogs to follow, but this meme has introduced me to some great blogs as well as some new ways to think and speak about Jesus. As one of the bloggers said, this can be a devotional exercise.

I was tagged me for this meme by Eric. Here's the way it works:

(a) Those tagged will share "Five Things They Dig About Jesus".
(b) Those tagged will tag 5 people.
(c) Those tagged will leave a link to their meme in the comments section of this post so everyone can keep track of what's being posted.

1) While I was still a sinner, Christ died for me. (Romans 5:8 My favorite Bible verse.) I was saved 2000 years ago!

2) Jesus lives in my heart and keeps calling to me. I know that this is true because of going through a difficult time, not praying for quite awhile, but He was still there without me doing anything.

3) Because of Jesus, I have brothers and sisters in the faith all over the world. [And because of the 'net I've communicated with Christians on all continents!]

4) Jesus accepted people who were outside the in-crowd in his society. Oops, He is pricking my conscience here.

5. Jesus forgives smugness.

Since my 5 digs seem to be soooooo much about me more than about Jesus, I'm adding
6) Jesus thought in unconventional ways: first was last, pray for your enemies, honor the poor and women, etc.
