What does it mean to have a heart like Jesus? I’ve never really spent a lot of time thinking about the elements of His heart. Sure I knew He loved stronger than anyone else. I have read about His selfless sacrifice, but His heart, what did it look like? I believe it’s evident throughout the scriptures how much God loves us. From the very beginning of time He has been making a way for us to have a relationship with Him. First in the Garden and all throughout the bible stories, we see the heights and depths God will go to in order to make a way for us to feel His love.
Just when it seemed like we’d never understand, He did the unimaginable. He sent His own son to become a sacrifice for our sins. He knew we would never make it on our own and He loved us too much to give up.
Along comes Jesus, unlike any other man, He walked with the people, accepted those who the world deemed unacceptable. He loved unconditionally with a love that few would understand. Once you truly feel the love of Christ, it’s very hard to walk away from Him.
Sometimes I feel like my heart will burst from the emotions I feel when I think about Him. A man who gave up everything just to save me!
Jesus never asked us if we were worthy to be saved; He just believed we were, so He came, He loved, He died and as a result, you are saved. All because He loved you! You have an opportunity to spread this message to a world without hope. It’s really simple, all you have to do is love them, they same way Jesus did and let the heart of the savior do the rest.
