A Tribute To The Savior Who Died For All Which Represents- Christ’s Perfect Love
A thought today was processed in my mind and here it is becoming a message for anyone reading this today. It is for those who might feel a little unloved, misunderstood, or without certainty, and that message is: Jesus’ love is Christ’s Perfect Love…nothing is more perfect.
There is probably nothing else in life that is truly perfect, but Jesus has perfect love, the selfless death on the cross which nothing else can match. It never waivers, it does not back off, it is not afraid to have faith in us, and it passes all understanding. It is the greatest love.
He does not look at our faults, He looks at our possibilities. He does not judge us by our accomplishments or our assets, the Lord judges us by our actions. Jesus does not care about our weakest link; He helps us to fix it if we ask. The Lord does not have an agenda to stay with the in-crowd, in fact, He does not believe there are any.
Jesus walks with everyone, and more so the humble and lowly. He does not forget about us, He counts every hair on our heads. Jesus wants us to live saintlily, and He wants us to love Him by obeying The Word of God.
He is always there, even when we are wrong to guide us in the right direction. The eternal love of the Father will look inside the heart and He knows the very intent. He knows that sometimes, our actions reiterate a lack of feeling secure for one reason or another.
Jesus gives us the strength to rise above fear and let go of anger. He does not care about our fashion, only that we are modest. That perfect love is about healing, it is about caring, it is about sharing what we know to help another soul reach heaven.
“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” John 3:36
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.” John 6:47
Christ’s perfect love was given so that we might have everlasting life. Our appreciation must be about worshiping Him, and not about how high we can soar with worldly fame. The Lord sees our success when we reach out to a soul who is falling, not when we reach the top of our profession. Above all, He appreciates our efforts to become more stable in Him, rather than feeling more secure in life things.
“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” John 15: 13
There are times in everyone’s life when they feel alone even when there are people around. Even when we know how perfect Jesus’ love is. This has nothing to do with insecurities or feeling less than others. It is somewhat human even though we should be more confident in Jesus’ love, regardless of what is going on around us.
Our goal in life should be to keep Jesus’ love prominent in our daily life so that little things do not hinder our walk with Him. People change, a fact of life. People disappoint us and we disappoint others at times in our life, but He never changes and He will never disappoint us.
The Lord does have certain expectations and rules to live by, and He gives us plenty of how-tos in His words.
“A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.” Proverbs 18:24
Friends in the flesh:
I consider myself to have a lot of friends. Each serves a different purpose to me and me to them. They are always there, always. They do not change with the wind or even when they find another friend, they are happy to be my friend and they seem to cherish our friendship, just as I do.
Just like Jesus’ perfect love, their love for me is not based upon what I have or do not have. Our love is based upon who each of us is within our hearts and our common goals. We may not talk on a daily, monthly, or yearly basis, but we know we are still friends. If they call, I listen and try to encourage them, and if I call, they listen and encourage me.
Some are work friends, some Christian friends, but all seem to know who I really am. They never have pity for me, nor I for them. All of these friends know that I expect nothing, nor want anything from them, except their continued friendship and love. You do not have to beg for true friendship, it is just there. If it isn’t, it was not true, to begin with.
When a person is your friend, just like Jesus’ friendship, neither of you is expected to read aloud all of your accomplishments each time you are together. Neither do they want a reading of the failures.
Real friends are not friends because of what they have or don’t have, they are friends because there is a bond that is not broken by accomplishments or failures. At some point in everyone’s life, there is failure and success.
