I Love How He Loves Me

Everyone wants to be loved. Unfortunately, in this broken world, many don’t get the love they want or need. We do different things in response to this, including getting angry, resentful or bitter. Some of us try to hide our insecurity about lack of love by acting out, hurting others (hurt people hurt people) or drowning our sorrows in substances or escapism. Some disguise lack of love with working too much or other excessive behaviors.

Even if we don’t know or understand it, we are all deeply loved. Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so. This is possibly what I love the most about Jesus – how he loves me. And how he loves you. His love is so big he loves each of us as if we were the only one. When we feel no one cares, Jesus loves us dearly, unconditionally, completely, intimately and extravagantly.

He loves me and you so much he gave us the gift of himself – a loving Savior who not only loves us, but wants to include us in his family forever. He has also given us everything we need for life and godly living (2 Peter 1:3) and so much more. I could go on and on about all his huge, wonderful gifts but I’ll just mention a few favorites:  chocolate, flowers, all sorts of food, colors, fragrances – so much to be thankful for. Only a loving God would think of all the little things to make this life more enjoyable.

Some amazing things to remember about his love: he loved us first (we don’t have to do anything to get him to love us). His love is so strong it sent him to the cross and kept him there until he finished the work he came to do – die for us. Did I mention it’s unconditional? He places no conditions – or borrowing from the Genie in the movie Aladdin, no provisos, no quid pro quos, just the sweet love of Jesus lavished on us freely and without limits.

Jesus loves me, this I know. And for that, I love him so.
