WE NEED TO FEED THEM
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16 KJV
I have beautiful flowers that grow every year outside of my office window. However, this year there are no blooms. I told someone how disappointed I was that they aren’t growing this year and she said that I needed to get fertilizer and feed them. Just as plants need fertilizer to grow, we need fertilizer.
Jesus is our Fertilizer and He not only feeds us every day with unconditional love, there are times He tells us every hour that He loves us. If Jesus didn’t tell me every day that He loved me, I would probably just stay in bed. We need the love of Jesus and we also need others to love us.
Just as we need love, so our family and friends need love. We need to feed them with the love of Jesus. How do we feed them with the love of Jesus? We feed them the love of Jesus by reassuring them that Jesus loves them and that He cares about them and that He will never leave them.
Our Heavenly Father loves us so much that He gave His Son to die on the cross for our sins so we can live in Heaven for eternity. God nourishes us with unconditional love through His beloved Son. Not only did God love us yesterday, He loves us today and He will love us tomorrow and for all eternity.
When is the last time you fertilized your family and friends with the love of Jesus? If married people don’t fertilize each other with love, the marriage will die. Let’s start loving one another with unconditional love. Also, tell Jesus that you love Him.
