Greetings in the Name of Jesus
Jesus Loves Me, This I Know
Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so.
Just a simple line from a child’s song, but it sums up what God’s Word is all about. Coupled with John 3:16&17 we learn how much Jesus loves us.
• ”For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.”
If you don’t know anything else about what the Bible says, you can be sure of two things.
1. Jesus loves you.
2. Jesus came and died just for you.
Jesus said in John 15:13,
• ”Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”
Satan did not kill Jesus. The people of that day did not kill Jesus. Jesus’ sole purpose for coming to earth was to redeem mankind by laying down His life. Oh, Satan thought he had destroyed Jesus, thus removing any threat that hung over his head. And the people of that day were merely instruments to accomplish what God the Father had sent Jesus to do.
Jesus also said in John 10:17-18,
• ”Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.”
God so loved His human creation that He sent His only begotten Son to shed His blood and die for a people who will repent and accept Him as their Savior and Lord. His love for us in unlimited. Jesus is a risen Savior and is seated at the right hand of God the Father. His greatest desire is for you to spend eternity with Him.
If you are one that would like to repent and accept Jesus into your heart as Savior and Lord, all you need do is bow your head and ask Jesus to forgive you of all your sins and ask Him to come into your heart and be your Lord. If you really mean this with all your heart, He will do just as you have asked.
