Love come to life…

risen

John 3:16 (NLT)

For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.

Jesus is…love come to life.  Tangible evidence of God’s love.  He made the ultimate sacrifice for each and every one of us.  He came to show us the Father.  He came to teach us and gave us this command…love God and love our neighbor.

This week brought news of another teen that took his life because he was gay.  It breaks my heart.  As I reflect on this Easter Sunday, I want to always remember Jesus’ sacrifice for me and I want to always remember his commandment to love…everyone.  I heard the song “Love Come to Life” by Big Daddy Weave the other day and the chorus has stuck with me ever since:

Bring Your love to life inside of me 
Why don’t You break my heart ’til it moves my hands and feet 
For the hopeless and the broken 
For the ones that don’t know that You love them 
Bring Your love to life inside of me 

Jesus help me to never forget the hopeless and the broken and make me a vessel of your love…because love matters.
