…this I know, for the Bible tells me so…
-Anna Warner and William Bradbury
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son that whoever believes in him will not perish, but have everlasting life.
-Jesus (John 3:16)
The famous song, called “Jesus Loves Me,” was written as a poem by Anna Warner and later, William Bradbury added a chorus and the tune. It endures to this day perhaps because of it’s simplicity and yet also because of the profound truth it conveys. There is no greater message than knowing that God has revealed his everlasting love through his Son, Jesus Christ, our promised rescuer.
When was the last time you said, “Jesus loves you,” to a child? These are simple words that bring a powerful and lifelong impact. There’s something amazing about knowing that God, Creator of the universe, became a man, Jesus, who identified with us in our sin and struggle and made a way for us to return to a relationship with God. Say it as often as you can!
Lord, thank you for loving me in my weakness and in my misery and in my wrongdoing.
