It is humbling to try and write something that describes Jesus since John who knew Jesus in the flesh said John 21:25 “And there are also many other things which Jesus did, which if they were written in detail, I suppose that even the world itself would not contain the books that would be written.” So, instead of describing His many wonderful attribute, I’ll focus on His most important attribute … love.
“Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, there’s just something about that name”, begins a beautiful praise song to Jesus. Or “You can have all the world, give me Jesus” is another favorite that speaks of our need for Jesus above all other things. And “Yes, Jesus loves me” is so simple and pure, it breaks through to the root of why we need Jesus … for His love. And no One loves us more than Jesus does. He loved us so much that He died in our place, not like a soldier who saves us from physical death by jumping on a grenade but He saved us from our Spiritual death, the death we are due because of our sin. Jesus saved us from eternal death and separation from God. He became sin who knew no sin. Jesus is fully man, so he was tempted as we are and He is fully God so that yet though He was tempted, He did not sin. He has passed the test of obedience toward God as man, He lived the perfect life that we didn’t. He has the won the victory over death and has therefore claimed the right to save us from our Spiritual death penalty, by dying in our place! Furthermore, Jesus has rose from the dead and showed us the new body and life we will have if we confess our sin, die to self and put our trust in Him. Halleluiah!
Even in the very beginning, Adam and Eve needed the love of Jesus and He was there to fill that need. When God walked in the garden with Adam and Eve, it was God in the form of His Son, Jesus, who walked with them, cared for them, instructed them in what was right and what was wrong. Perhaps we will never understand why Adam and Eve trusted Satan over Jesus but even in the midst of the worst tragedy to befall mankind and creation (sin and death), Jesus was there to make a way for man to rejoin Him in a “new and coming” garden of Eden. Genesis 3:8 “They heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden.” A very, very, long and painful way, and much painful and difficult for Jesus than for us. Jesus made a way when we didn’t deserve a way. That is what grace is, getting something we don’t deserve, eternal life with Jesus. And mercy is it’s twin, not getting what we do deserve, death and eternal separation from Jesus.
If you read the Why am I here page, I poke holes in a lot of philosophies and religions. And, this has value to expose falsehood and get people to consider the truth but often times it just causes people to dig in their heels of resistance even further. Because good arguments, logic and facts are only tools to tear down the walls of our hearts and expose our real need, the need to be loved. And this is something only Jesus can do. The need to be loved for who we really are is a void in our heart that only Jesus can fill. He is always there to love us. Jesus is always knocking at the door of your heart, wanting to come in and dine with you. And the day that you turn to Jesus for His love and you hear Him say “I love you”, you will never again doubt who you are or why you are here or fear where you are going because you will know you belong to Jesus and you are with Him. Wherever you go or wherever He takes you, Jesus is with you, always, forever. As a born-again child of God, you will never be separated from Jesus or from His love.
Romans 8:35 “Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Just as it is written, FOR YOUR SAKE WE ARE BEING PUT TO DEATH ALL DAY LONG; WE WERE CONSIDERED AS SHEEP TO BE SLAUGHTERED. But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
