Did you enjoy the video on yesterday’s post? It is nice to have a little laugh now and then but honestly the songs many of us learned as pre-schooler teach us a lot. They were meant to lay a foundation of faith in our hearts.
The foundation is that Jesus loves ME, even me. There are no if ands or buts in this statement we sing. It is not preceded with “If you do (blank) then I’ll love you.” He just loves me. There is not a follow up clarifying statement like “because you (blank) I love you.” He just loves me.
In case I am not sure if He really does love me then I just need to follow the next note of this simple song. It points me back to truth – The Bible tells me so.
The written Word of God reminds me that the God of the Bible is the One that loves me. The God who protected the 3 Hebrew boys from the fire flames, another from the mouth of loins, and slayed a giant. The Jesus that healed all forms of sickness including even death loves me.
This one verse from a children’s song teaches me everything I need to know to cause me to sing praises to His name.
