Tell Someone About Jesus’ Love!

John 15:13

Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.

This past week was amazing – from Palm Sunday through Easter morning and the celebration of the empty tomb.  Souls were added to the kingdom on Friday night and Sunday morning.  People rededicated their lives to Jesus – wanting to be on fire for Jesus and to have purpose – even in the later years of life.  The salvation message was preached at each service – even preached at a celebration of life service (funeral) on Saturday.  People were challenged to step up and be real with their faith and to be on fire for Jesus!

All of this was made possible because greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friendsThe love that Jesus showed us is without equal.  I stand in awe – once again – of the amazing love that Jesus showed as He carried His cross from before time began to the Cross of Calvary.  We don’t believe – as some do – that Jesus had to carry His cross – but out of love – He carried it from before time began.  He could have put it down at any time – we didn’t deserve such an act of love – but His love was expressed toward us while we were yet His enemies.

If we haven’t already – now is the time to yield our lives to Jesus and His love.  A young man I have known for years did so this weekend – it was such a blessing to be able to pray with him as he accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior.  I look forward to what God will do in his young life – and in the life of two younger children – a sister and brother who with tears came to the altar Friday night and prayed for Jesus to be their Lord and Savor.  Watching their mom in tears as one of her prayers was coming true made my week – but that was just part of the amazing week.

Romans 1:16 – I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.

Be an Easter people and tell someone about Jesus today! Overcome your fear because of the joy you have in Jesus!  God and tell someone today!

Just something to think about today as you go on your way.
