God's Great Love for Us!

God's Great Love for Us!

By Patrick Mulvehill


Oh, how He loves you,

Oh, how He loves me,

Oh, how He loves you and me.


It is such a simple truth, but one that we need to be reminded of so often. Jesus loves us! And it isn’t the superficial kind of love that only cares about how you are doing when bumping into you on the street, but it’s the “not forgetting your birthday” kind of love! The kind of love that knows you better than you know yourself. The kind of love that gives and then keeps on giving with no thought of getting anything back in return. The kind of love that sings along with you even though you sound like a dying cow in a rainstorm and never says a word about how bad it really sounds. The kind of love that doesn’t know that meaning of giving up. The kind of love that you feel even when you are miles apart. The kind of love that laughs when you laugh and cries when you cry, that seeks the best for you even when you don’t know what the best is yourself. That is a powerful kind of love. And if that weren’t enough, that same love made the ultimate sacrifice for you so that you could live enterally with Him.


“In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.” (1 John 4:9)


He gave His life, what more could He give;

Oh, how He loves you,

Oh, how He loves me,

Oh, how He loves you and me.
