Worship The Lord Jesus

In Jesus Is True Joy!


I have been a follower of Jesus Christ since 1980.  With the grace of God, I do my best to make Him the center of my life in all things.  Thirty years ago I married my wife,  a woman who could only be a gift from my Father in heaven.  She is the best companion a man could wish for, and the first focus of my ministry in Christ.

The Lord has blessed us in so many ways, but first and foremost, He has blessed us with our salvation, the forgiveness of our sins, and eternal life with Him.  Having received such a precious gift, one purchased with the blood of Jesus, God made flesh, how can I do less than my utmost to share God’s most precious gift with others who are  in desperate need of that same gift?


  1. Thank you so much for visiting and following holdingforthhisword. Jesus is glorious and wonderful, isn’t He? God bless us.

  3. My friend,

    I am sincerely apologetic of this situation. I wish you had not been so quick to jump on your sister. I was in the process of finding other Christians and hit a follow limit. I began to go through my followers, click on each name to check if they were following me, and then unfollow those who were not. That was tedious. I then decided to go through a patch and unfollow all. Then, I would go to my followers and follow those whom I was not.

    I wish you had more patience with me and I, again, apologize for this unfortunate conversation.

  6. Hi John our picture is not showing on your Blog as having made a comment why? are you moderating comments after the first one and if so why? and why does it not show that you are moderating, I noticed this before but with hacker problems, did not get back to you.

    Kind regards Anne.

    • I don’t understand why this is happening. I have it set up so I will moderate the comment of a newcomer, but after that, everyone is pre-approved.

      For some reason though, all 3 of your recent comments have shown up as awaiting moderation.

      I haven’t changed settings since I started this blog.

      This sounds like a WordPress bug, hopefully temporary.

      God bless,

  9. Hi John you left a message for me yesterday because you couldn’t answer my post from your e-mai, I’m sorry but yesterday was not good because of hacker problems and now I can’t find your comment but you can respond by e-mail if you want to, it’s on my About.

    Ron can’t even comment now they have blocked his e-mail address, those who walk in the flesh don’t care if they hurt others, it’s all about them and sadly some Christians are the same, they are rude and unloving ie they delete comments that you leave for them because they don’t agree but have no Scripture to confirm you are in error so instead of doing what God asks us to which is to resolve our differances through Him, they just block you, what they forget is how they treat others is how they will be treated and by God too unless they come to heart repentance because they show they don’t have God’s Love which means they are not indwelt by the Holy Spirit.

    Take Care Christian Love nne

    • Welcome Jennifer,
      Thank you for stopping by. I am glad that you are enjoying my blog, and I hope that I am able to provide some thought provoking material in the future.

      I’ve looked at your website, New Life Publishing (www.nlpg.com), and it looks like a wonderful resource! I only wish I was able to find enough time for reading beyond my devotional and study times.

      I’m sorry, but I am afraid I must decline.
