Tell Me Again That Jesus Loves Me

Jesus loves me, this I know for the Bible tells me so. God loves me, but I need to hear it again. I need to hear it again because the waves of trouble are too loud for me. I need to hear it again because the world shouts a different story. I need to hear it again because of my own depravity. I need to hear it again because I looked in the mirror and felt less than beautiful. I need to hear it again because Your Love Lord, is the best and deepest love there is.

Jesus loves me. 20 Verses about God's love for us.

  1. John 3:16  “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
  2. Romans 5:8 but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
  3. Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God. who loved me and gave himself for me.
  4. Ephesians 2:4-5 But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ— by grace you have been saved—
  5. 1 John 4:9-11 In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
  6. Zephaniah 3:17 The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.
  7. 1 John 4:7-8  Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.  Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.
  8. Psalm 86:15 But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.

My First Love

I love my husband so much. We have known each other over ten years and I couldn’t imagine life without him. With all that said. He is not my first love. He didn’t love me first. He hasn’t been with me my whole life. He hasn’t been through some pretty rough times with me. Jesus has though. Jesus is my first love.8b656669f23c1044618fb9d333c61f69

 

Jesus is my first love because I can hide nothing from him and He still chooses to love me. My husband doesn’t know all my deep dark secrets or the thoughts of my heart. Jesus can read my thoughts and my inner heart, and can still love me through the ugliness. Romans 5:8 says, “but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us”. Jesus loves you too! Let Him love you!

Jesus is my first love because he will never leave me. I might have to live without my husband someday. No one but God knows what the future holds. Nothing can separate me from the love of God. I cling to the promise of Romans 8:37-39, “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord”.Continue Reading
