Today’s thought – Jesus Loves Me . . . Why?

Good Morning

Why Should He Love Me So?

John 13:1
“Jesus, having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the end.”

Have you ever wondered,
Why should He love you so?
If one views God only as being immense,
then it is not likely such a one would
ever consider how much God loves them.
Immensity makes God too big,
too austere,
too preoccupied with the universe
to ever give any serious thought
to someone who is so comparatively insignificant.

But, God is not immense — He is infinite.
There is a marvelous difference.
F.W. Boreham wrote of
“the essential difference between immensity and infinity.
The former has limits,” he said,
“while the latter has none.”

Because God is infinite — He is unlimited!
He can fill the universe with His presence,
and yet give full regard to the humblest of people.
Even so as to number the very hairs on our heads!
But, why should He love me so?

The answer is — He can do nothing else!
Years ago Miles Stanford wrote,
“God’s love functions according to the quality of its nature,
not according to the quality of that toward which it is directed.”

So, why should He love me so?
He is God — that’s why.

Trust in His Love . . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
