” JESUS LOVES ME, THIS I KNOW “
When I was a kid my Mom always sang to us when she tucked us in bed or when she held us when we were sick. The song that seemed to just come out of her was, “Jesus Loves Me”. You don’t really hear the song too much today. I wonder if it is even still taught in our children’s churches, nurseries, or if Mom’s today still sing it to their kids.
I have been in Church Services and this song was just spontaneously sang, and it really brought forth a move of The Holy Spirit. I used to go in and out of prisons, with Mike Barber Ministries doing prison ministry. This one guy would travel around playing his Harmonica at these meetings. I’ve been under a big tent with a thousand or more inmates, some of them ole hard men, tough and bitter, and this song would be played and immediately you would hear sobbing and crying of these hardened men. You didn’t even have to voice the words, just the music would break even the hardest of men.
Some would say it has this effect because it is tied to most folks childhood, and that is a small part of it. However I am convinced that it is such a Powerful song, because it is the GOSPEL MESSAGE. It is this very Gospel that changes the hearts of the world. “Jesus loves me this I know, for The Bible tells me so. Little ones to Him belong, they are weak but He is strong “. Notice the song doesn’t go, Jesus loves me if I do good…………..it just states the facts…….Jesus loves me PERIOD!!!!!!
It is on this Gospel that everything else is built. Because God loved all mankind so much, he let His only Son Jesus, be beaten, spit on, mistreated, and hung on a cross where His Blood was spilled out for all the sins of mankind, past, present, and future. (John 3:16) quoted in my grammar. This song often gets looked on as childish, but it is that childlike faith that Jesus says we must possess. Even if you never acknowledge Jesus as Lord and Savior of your life , He still loves you. Even if you were the only one, God would have still sent Jesus. Gods love is not based on your performance but based only on The Finished Work Of Jesus On The Cross.
Lord help me to always remember that Your love for me never changes, You stay the same. And my Abundant Life depends only on my Faith and Belief in that Finished Work of Jesus……..
