Why Do I Love Jesus?

on July 8, 2014

 Jesus. Name above all names. Just to say His name is to bring hope, healing and peace. Jesus. I love Him. Some may wonder why. Why do I love Jesus?

I love Jesus….

Because of who He is. Creator of the universe. Maker of all things. The first in authority over all the earth. The Son of God and God in the flesh. The Lamb who takes away the sin of the world. Jesus is amazing! He loves deeply and unconditionally. His love and mercy have no limits. He was gentle as He ministered to the lost and broken, and yet He was strong enough to go through the pain and humiliation of beating and crucifixion. Jesus is the definition of awesomeness. Full of love, compassion and beauty. How could you not love Him?

I love Jesus….

Because of what He did. Jesus left His place of glory and praise, motivated by love, and came to this world that He Himself created to save sinners like me. He served with startling humility. He loved with abandon and without concern for how others viewed Him. He washed the feet of His disciples, and even washed the feet of His betrayer. He choose to die on the cross, taking upon Himself the punishment for your sins and mine. He suffered for me. Bled for me. Died for me. He did it for you too. He did it so that we could have forgiveness for our sins and spend eternity with Him in Paradise. How could you not love Him?

I love Jesus….

Because He loved me first. While I was still a sinner, lost and filthy, this King of Glory looked down upon me and loved me. He saw me and decided I was worth it. I was worth stepping down from His throne to die in my place. He touched me when no one else would. He loved me when everyone else abandoned me. Jesus loves you too. He loves you whether or not you love Him. He loves you whether or not you believe in Him. It makes no difference. He hates our sin, but He loves our souls and desires that none should perish, but that we should all come to know Him. He loves you so very much. How could you not love Him?

I love Jesus….more than anything else. I love Him more than I can even understand. There is none like Him in heaven or on earth. There is no one that deserves our love and adoration more than Jesus. Mostly I love Him because He has never, ever given up on me. When I fall (which is often), He picks me back up. When I’m feeling alone and scared, He embraces me and reminds me that I’m special to Him.

I love Jesus, and loving Jesus is the most important part of my life. Another important part is sharing Jesus with others so that they might love Him too. If you don’t love Jesus, it’s because you don’t know Him. When you get to know Him, your heart will soften and you’ll realize that He is what you’ve been searching for and haven’t been able to find anywhere else. You’ll see that He is what you need. He brings healing and hope. He brings forgiveness and love. He brings salvation. He loves you. Get to know Jesus and give your heart to Him. It’ll be the best choice you ever made.
