I love Jesus

A lot of different words and phrases are used today to describe our belief in or lack of belief in Jesus Christ, the second person of the Trinity, who “emptied Himself of all that He was as God and became flesh just like me, was tempted  in every way as the devil gave it his best shot to get Jesus to sin, because then Jesus couldn’t be my savior or yours. Then Jesus was nailed to a cross and God the Father reached into our lives, clear back to Adam and ahead to the last person to be born and took all our sins, and put them on Jesus, and looked at Jesus as if He actually committed all of those sins. Because God is holy He turned His back on His son and their unity and oneness was broken for the first time in all of eternity, and Jesus cried out on the cross, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?!” As I consider what Jesus has done for me so that I can be with Him forever my most natural response is to love Him with all my heart, my soul, and to serve Him because of my love. My love for Jesus controls my life. I want to please Him with my every thought and each of my words, and the way  I live my life.  A question that I have asked hundreds of people over the last 40 years is” suppose you die tonight, and you are standing before God and He asks you, Why should I let you into my heaven, what will you say? The answer better be right because their are no Mulligans, no do overs, at this point. I have heard every answer under the sun, but their is one right answer that gets you into the presence of God and that is”I love You Jesus because You first loved me.”.
