SPEAKING OF LOVE

 
"Since, then, we have a great High Priest Who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast to our profession of faith." —Hebrews 4:14
 

Human beings have a tendency to tell others about those they love. Parents like to show anyone pictures of their children. Brides-to-be usually can't say a sentence without speaking of their fiances. For us to tell others about Jesus, we must simply come to love Him. When we realize He gave up His life for us (Is 53:10; Mt 20:28), love wells up in our hearts. When we believe He took on Himself all our sins and guilt (Is 53:11), we're attracted to this Person Who loves us more than we love ourselves.

Jesus has always been there for us, ready to forgive us and "sympathize with our weakness" (Heb 4:15). Through Him, we can "confidently approach the throne of grace to receive mercy and favor and to find help in time of need" (Heb 4:16). Jesus is amazingly lovable. He is perfect. He will never reject us (Jn 6:37). He has proven His love. Never let a day go by without speaking to someone of your love for Jesus.

 
Prayer: Jesus, may I become ever more preoccupied with loving You.
Promise: "Anyone among you who aspires to greatness must serve the rest; whoever wants to rank first among you must serve the needs of all." —Mk 10:43-44
Praise: "O Lord our God, You are worthy to receive glory and honor and power! For You have created all things; by Your will they came to be and were made!" (Rv 4:11) Alleluia!
