How do we love like Jesus when we’re bombarded by the world’s cheap, brokedown, imitation of love? Don’t be fooled, the world’s version of love is offensive and lacking, it’s nothing like the love of Jesus. Jesus demonstrated perfect, all-encompassing, unending, unfathomable love at the Cross!
Here’s the Truth: ♥✞♥
No one will ever love you more than Jesus.
Even though we may not love Him.
No one will ever sacrifice more for you than Jesus.
Even though we give Him nothing.
No one will ever suffer more for you than Jesus.
Even though He is blameless.
No one will ever redeem more for you than Jesus.
Even though we deny Him.
No one will ever rescue you more than Jesus.
Even though we don’t deserve it.
No one will ever provide more for you than Jesus.
Even though we have nothing to offer.
You can search far and wide – to the ends of the earth – there are many who try to be like Jesus but they all fail. There is but One who will do all these things and far more than you can begin to comprehend – He is Jesus! But how do we know what the love of Jesus feels like if we’ve never experienced it? And worse how can we pretend to know the full extent of the love that Christ has for us when it’s incomprehensible to us. No one on earth is capable of showing us or demonstrating God’s love. Instead of learning about love from the Bible, we learn how to love from other imperfect people. We don’t know the full weight of God-like love. We talk about love like it’s fleeting – it comes and goes. Our love has limits, conditions, boundaries, failures, and hurt. This resembles nothing of Jesus’ love – an innocent sacrifice, who loves without limits and borders! This resembles nothing of God’s love – an all-powerful God made flesh to offer us redemption and salvation!
Christians bask in the glow and shimmer of this incomprehensible love – we know it exists, we experience it, we chase hard after it.
Non-believers live in shadows of love, falsities cloaked in darkness and gray fog. They do not see but they do not know they are blinded.
John 15:12 “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.
Ephesians 5:8 for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light.
I challenge you today to shine a light – shine the light of Jesus, shine the light of Truth, shine the light of love – disperse the darkness and fog. As we approach Good Friday, we vividly remember all the suffering and torment Jesus endured for us at the Cross and the amazing gift of salvation that came from it. Jesus is not walking the earth today but that doesn’t change the fact that we are called to be His hands and feet. He prepared us with the teachings, gifts, and examples in the Bible. God provides all the strength necessary for us to carry out His Will. Take up His Cross, chase hard after Him, and show every soul you meet along the way the amazing love of Jesus.
God bless you.
