Jesus Loves Me, This I Know

Almost everyone is familiar with the line in the Christian hymn, “Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so.” But what does the Bible really tell us about the love of Jesus? We see from scripture that Jesus is not waiting on you to make a decision or perform an action so he can love you and keep on loving you. No, God has loved his people with an everlasting love, and it’s not based on what we have done because we have no love for God in our natures. The Bible tells us that God loved us when we did not love God, when we were enemies towards him, when we were dead in sins with no capacity for love. The Bible tells us that God loved us when we were unlovable, and thus calls upon us to love others in the same manner that God has loved us. “Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” (1 John 4:10)
