The Love Of Jesus!


Love has awakened our hearts. Love that fulfills every longing and demolishes every fear. Love that’s alive and has a name—Jesus. He draws us with relentless passion and kisses our darkness with mercy. His love is outrageous—it never stops, and we’ve done nothing to earn it. His presence is a safe haven—drawing us away from religion, into the chamber of the King.

Our lives are no longer our own. To truly be transformed by this love means we’re stirred to not only soak it up but to pour it out. Love becomes the driving force behind all we do and say. Let’s be known by our radical love and how relentlessly we honor each other. Hearts that are truly ignited with holy passion don’t just talk about love, they demonstrate it.

Jesus, let me live in the awareness of your overwhelming love forever. To taste and see that you are good. To be so wrecked by the beauty and power of your love that I cannot help but share it. Let me be known by love, not just for you but for the way I care about others.From “Ever Present Love” written by Brian Simmons and Gretchen Rodriguez
