We cherish our relationship with Jesus, don’t we? We are absolutely certain He is the reason we are alive today. He is why we have hope, more importantly; a heavenly home.
Have you ever told Jesus you loved Him? I realized after this concept came to me in a morning devotion, that I really hadn’t. Maybe when I was a kid, singing “Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so.” But as an adult, no – I’m sure I never had. I am thankful, grateful, appreciative. I am in awe of His great works, and how He gets to the heart of even the most stubborn. But this – no.
When we have dinner together at home, I now end our prayer with “we love you.” And when I’m having my own prayer time, I am consciously aware of these words. But there are other (and powerful) ways to tell Jesus you love Him.
1. Put Him first.
2. Talk to Him first.
3. Trust in Him.
4. Forgive and move on.
5. Be an open book. (This one is harder because it shows the world who we really are in Christ.)
6. Show compassion to every person you encounter. You simply cannot know how much they need Jesus!
