THE UNCONDITIONAL LOVE OF OUR SAVIOUR
“He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.”
Matthew 26:42 KJV
What kind of love is this that Jesus would say to His Father, “Thy will be done”? It is the amazing unconditional love of our Saviour for you and for me. He did not have to die on the cross for our sins. God didn’t make Him die on the cross. Jesus willingly died for you and for me. O how He loves us.
He loves us so much He died for us. How much do we love Him and what are we doing for Him? Jesus deserves all of our praise, all of our time, all of our talents and all of our heart. He should have first place in our heart and come before everyone and everything.
We brag about our children and grandchildren. Are we bragging about Jesus? Do we tell everyone we see what He has done for us? Do we include Jesus in our conversations and do we take Him with us where we go? If we can’t take Jesus with us, we shouldn’t go to those places.
Someone asked if it is okay to watch movies on television. If we would be comfortable with Jesus sitting beside us watching the movie, it is okay to watch it. However, if we feel uncomfortable watching the movie with Jesus, we should not watch it. The movie should make us think about the love of Jesus.
We know Jesus loves us unconditionally because He proved His love for us when He allowed them to beat Him beyond recognition, spit on Him and nail Him to the cross. How much do we love Him and what are we doing for Him?
