John 15:13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.
Yesterday I heard an old Stevie Wonder song that I’m sure everyone will remember, especially if you’ve seen the movie Jungle Fever. In the song, Stevie reminds us of the desire we all have which is to be loved. The song begins with a question: When was the last time that they heard you say….I Love You? Have we told those the closest to us, that we love them?? Or do we spend more time telling them about their failures and shortcoming? Jesus wants to give us a very important message from His Father.
God never wants us to ask the question “When was the last time that you’ve heard Him say that He loves you?” So much so that over 2000 years ago, God sent His only Son Jesus to die on Calvary’s Cross and the ultimate display of Love for each one of us. So today should never be a doubt about how much God loves us, and every time we hear a message or read the scripture we should be reminded of His love for us. Remember the Cross, the ultimate sacrifice, the shed blood, the remission of sin, the restoration of the saints, the love, and the acceptance of His beloved.
These Three Words bring peace in chaos, healing in pain and shelter from every storm. These Three Words have made our crooked ways strait and the lost become found. These Three Words have made the unrighteous righteous and the sinner saved. It was These Three Words that made you and me. These Three Words….Father, Son, Spirit…want to tell us “I LOVE YOU.” There is no greater love…
