Isn’t God’s love for us just amazing?
I’ve always wondered what it takes to show HIM my love…!?
As a Doctor.. I get to meet different types of people attending my OPD.. people with minor body aches who feel like they’re the most unfortunate beings on Earth., people who never follow my advice but blame me at the end., people who yell at me for attending to them late.. (I would’ve been busy attending an emergency case after finishing a sleepless night shift..starving all night!)..etc., Amidst all these groups of people.. There are very few who really feel what I do for them and say, “Thankyou Doctor!”.. Now these are the people whom I would like to call “the rasrest species on Earth”.. Haa..haa!
Yeah..! It’s rare to find people who realize what has been done for them.. It’s these kind of people who bring a little sunshine to my day..! They encourage me to serve more.. and more.. and more..!
A grateful heart is the rarest of treasures!
How to love JESUS..?
Love HIM with a grateful heart.. Not a grumpy complaining one!
Therefore I say to you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much. But to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little.”
Luke 7:47 NKJV
Another version reads like this:
She has been forgiven of all her many sins. This is why she has shown me such extravagant love. But those who assume they have very little to be forgiven will love me very little.”
Luke 7:47 TPT
Love HIM like a sinner! Love HIM realizing that HE has forgiven our many sins.. Love HIM with a grateful heart.. Remind yourself that HE loves you even after seeing those filthy pages of your life.. HIS love changes not even after seeing those sins you’ve committed in secret!
The broken and contrite spirit of a convicted & grieving heart is the greatest sacrifice of love that could be ever offered to HIM!
So let us love HIM with all our heart, strength and mind.. Let us love the friend of sinners.. like a sinner!
Love HIM like a sinner saved by grace!
