Oh, How I Love Jesus!

The words ring so true! Yet, so rarely are they uttered from my lips.

My prayer is to love and acknowledge my love for him more each day. Is there power here? Can we really say these words to Jesus, to God and even to ourselves and continue to live untransformed lives? I wonder what would happen if we substituted positive self talk for Jesus loves me and Oh how I love Jesus talk. Could the fact that he first loved me, make me love others even more, speak more kindly, extend more patience to my children, my wife, the church, the lost.

Can you and I utter these words and continue to ignore the poor, the homeless, the widow, the orphan and the sinner? Again, we love because he first loved us. Where is the pride in our ability if we can’t do it alone?

Sing with me!

Oh, how I love Jesus,
Oh, how I love Jesus,
Oh, how I love Jesus,

BECAUSE HE FIRST LOVED ME!

Amen
