When you are in love with that special someone, you sit around with a smile and daydream of moments you had together. As Christians, our hearts, souls and minds should be constantly consumed by God’s love. Jesus was willing to be put to open shame and painful death for our sins. He was dragged through the streets, stripped naked, nailed on a wooden cross and in spite of what humanity did to Him, He forgave us.
Why would Jesus love us so much in spite of our wicked hearts?
Knowing He would be crucified, He still came to the earth to redeem us. If that wasn’t enough, He made us righteous, holy, perfect, faultless and rich. He gave us the Kingdom of Heaven as an inheritance. Why not pick up the bible and see all the glorious ways that Jesus has loved you?
John 14:1-3 says “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also”
I get to be where He is? Is Jesus for real? Wow that’s crazy love.
Not only has He forgiven us, He wants us to be with Him – FOREVER!
If Jesus is not that special person in your life I can understand why your heart might not be set on Him. Why not give Him a chance? He’s the only one that can truly love you; He will complete your life. Repent of your sins and open up your heart to Jesus – He’s the fire that never goes out.
