Jesus Loves Me

A few weeks ago we took the girls to the playground at the Royston Wellness and Community Park. While there, my mom captured a video (which I posted to Facebook) of Adeline singing “Jesus Loves Me.” After watching the video of Adeline’s song, a friend and fellow minister texted me. 

Thanks for sharing that video of Adeline. Sometimes I get so busy making sure other people know Jesus loves them that I forget he loves me, too.

I love watching this video over and over, because, well, she is so cute, but more than that, I keep watching it because sometimes, just like my friend, I need to be reminded of this simple, yet profound truth. Jesus loves me.

Jesus loves ME. No matter what. 

Jesus’ love doesn’t color inside the lines; rather, Jesus loves like splatter paint! The love of Jesus is extravagant! 

Grace means there is nothing we can do to make God love us more…and grace means there is nothing we can do to make God love us less. - Philip Yancey

In the innocence of my daughter’s song I am reminded of my need to trust in this simple, yet profound truth:

 

Jesus loves me—this I know,

For the Bible tells me so;

Little ones to him belong,

They are weak, but he is strong.

 

Yes! Jesus loves me!

Yes! Jesus loves me!

Yes! Jesus loves me!

The Bible tells me so.

So, if you need a little reminder of Jesus’ love for you, check out the video of Adeline - I posted it to the Royston Baptist Church Facebook Page!
