The U in Jesus

Before U were thought of or time had begun,
God stuck U in the name of His Son.
And each time U pray, you'll see it's true,
You can't spell out JesUs and not include U.

You're a pretty big part of His wonderful name,
For U, He was born; that's why He came.
And His great love for U is the reason He died.
It even takes U to spell crUcified.

Isn't it thrilling and splendidly grand
He rose from the dead, with U in His plan?
The stones split away, the gold trUmpet blew,
and this word resUrrection is spelled with a U.

When JesUs left earth at His upward ascension,
He felt there was one thing He just had to mention.
"Go into the world and tell them it's true
That I love them all - Just like I love U."

You must be born again.

Texts: John 3:1; 1 Corinthians 15:50; Romans 3:23.

Background: Nicodemus comes to speak with Jesus at night.

How to get a free upgrade for your journey

Text: Ephesians 1:3, 12 - "Blessed be the God and Father of out Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ....That we should be to the praise of His glory, who first trusted in Christ"

If you ever travel abroad commercial aircraft you may experience being approached at the airport before departure. It is not uncommon to be approached by BA staff and receive an offer to be upgraded to the next higherst class of accomadation. If you have booked into Tourist class you may be "upgraded" into Business Class or even First Class. This is because the Economy section is full, but there are empty seats in other parts of the aircraft.

My wife and I were waiting Kings Cross station a few years ago after a trip to London when we were approached by someone from the train company offering us more comfort in Business. We accepted the offer. It was a more pleasant experience that we had in Economy on the journey on the way down to London, with more legroom and coffee served free at all times. Sometime later I reflected on the pleasant journey and realised that we actually had no right to be there other than being invited there by a member of the train company.
