Jesus Loves Me, This I Know

by Jeff A. Jenkins
“Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so.” These simple words in the beloved hymn for children, speak to the most profound truth in Scripture.
There is another song that we sing as adults that proclaims the same truth. “Why did my Savior come to earth, and to the humble go? Why did he choose the lowly birth, because he loves me so.”
In a world where the idea of love is given multiple definitions, it is one of the greatest blessings of life to know of the love Jesus has for us. Each time we gather around the Table of our Lord, we are reminded of his great love for us.
As we eat the bread and drink the fruit of the vine, we remember again how blessed we are to know his love. One of the greatest principles associated with his love for us is that it cannot be taken away from us.
Paul states this very clearly in Romans 8:35-39, when he says that there is nothing in this world that can “separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus.”
God will never remove his love from us. In spite of how we may treat him and how we may live, Jesus will still love us. He loved those who hung him on the cross and treated him with such cruelty a long time ago.
Dear Father, help us never forget the most profound fact in all the world. May we never forget how much we are loved by our Savior. As we gather to feast on the Lord’s Supper, help us to always be thankful for the amazing love that has been showered upon us.
