Oh How I love Jesus

Oh how I love Jesus! Remember that song? I was reminded of it today as Pastor Sean told us how we could all go to heaven. The simple gospel, living water. Whether for the first time or for the hundredth it is music to the ears and life to the soul. I have always said and believed that whatever happens that God is bigger and that He is faithful. I feel like I am being tested in that right now but I still believe it. I know God's plan is good, that He is faithful, that He does "not willingly grieve or afflict" His children. He is good. Nobody is excluded from His love and each one of us is precious to our creator. His desire to save encompasses us all and His invitation to live for Him is for each of us! We are of all people the most fortunate who call upon the name of the Lord. God has reminded me this week that the promise of blessing is not just for heaven but for this life also. He has promised us life eternal and that starts the moment we are born again. I can live knowing that I can ask Him anything according to His will and He is here for me! I am so grateful to God for His great love for me and for you. I praise God for my brothers and sisters in Christ who encourage me and each other every day. I am thankful for the prayers of the saints. We all need each other. Mostly I am glad that I love Jesus because He first loved me!
