A Thought on Jesus’ Vulnerability

“Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.”
(John 14:21, NIV)

Looking at this scripture, it becomes clear to me: Jesus chooses to be vulnerable, but only with those who love (obey) Him. He knows that His Love is what every heart needs, yet we can only know His Love by choosing to love Him back by obeying.

I’m not saying we can only approach God by doing works; it is by Grace we are saved! Yet God (Christ and the Father as Jesus mentions here, as well as the Holy Spirit) shows Himself to those who will truly seek Him.

Question: where are you not letting Jesus in? (I’m typing this as I think about it, so feel free to comment if you think my thoughts here are out of line.) May we know Jesus more and more and show our love for Him more and more through obedience… and only obey out of the true vulnerability and Love Jesus gives. ❤


As said before, we do not become saved by anything we do; we become saved based on what Jesus did. Learn more about Jesus, and His work done on the cross for you, here.

The Campaign for Israeli Government

Please pray with me over who will be the next prime minister (and government in general) over Israel! The election has been tied up. As 1 Timothy 2 says,

“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior…” -1 Timothy 2:1-3

Israel is incredibly important to God, and is an essential part of His Plan for the end times. Let’s pray Jesus’ will would be done in this election and that all Israelis would know Christ as Lord and Savior!

Prayer for Alex Trebek

In case you haven’t heard, Alex Trebek, the 79-year-old host of “Jeopardy!” has pancreatic cancer—and is back in chemotherapy after many months of being in remission. When asked about his health, he says he is concerned for those who love him once he passes, but says, “I’ve had one hell of a life.”

Whether you’re aware of who he is or not, my heart goes out to this man. I pray that he would come to know Jesus if he has not, yet. Will you please pray with me for him?


Jesus deeply and passionately cares for every single person on this earth. Learn more about Jesus, and His great Love for you, here.

Prayer for Pastor in India

While they are not taking their own lives, this Indian pastor has gone through a horrific axe attack for sharing the Gospel and pastoring his church. Though he has gone through so much pain, he says that it all just makes him want to do more and more ministry.

As I said before, let’s pray for our pastors. They need our love, help and support.

With Love in Christ,

Praying for the Children in Nigeria

Jurist.org, with the Human Rights Watch, have reported that hundreds of young children, some even as young as 5 years old, are being detained for supposed links to Boko Haram. In reality, there is little to no proof of Boko Haram captivity to detain these children, yet they are being held in the dirtiest, worst of conditions. “About half of the children said they saw dead bodies of other detainees and many said they frequently suffered from thirst and hunger,” Jurist.org reports.

These kids are undergoing some of the most traumatic events possible. Who will stand up for them? Who will be their voice? Who will pray for and support them? We must rally around these precious creations of God, supporting them and speaking on their behalf… but how?

We need to pray, pray, pray. We need to spread the news and fight for the rights of these children in horrific conditions. We need to bring it to the world’s attention, so that these kids and their lives can be known. Will you partner with me in doing so?

If so, here are some things you can do:

  • Share the article I used for this blogpost.
  • Reblog this post.
  • Share this post, and/or the article used, on social media like facebook.
  • Retweet this post (I am on twitter: @BBHG_Prayer)

Let’s get the word out—and most of all, pray for these circumstances to improve, and justice to be served.

“But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!”
(Amos 5:24, NIV)


Do you know Jesus?

Jesus came down to earth approximately 2,000 years ago, out of pure Love for you and I. Learn more about Jesus, His amazing love, and His Justice, here.


Please pray (find the prayer sheet here):

  • That innocent children would be freed, soon.
  • That guilty children working for Boko Haram would go through due process.
  • That the Nigerian military would not be quick to just throw children into prison.

Thank you for your prayers!!!

Feeling discouraged in your ministry and living for Christ? Remember: “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9, NIV)

Through the pain and trial, keep going, friend. Jesus sees your work! Come to Him and allow Him to refresh, comfort, and strengthen your soul… and let all your work come from resting in the Lord Jesus. ❤
