We Love Him, Because He First Loved Us.

 ~ 1 John 4:19

Those of us who are blessed to be saved by Jesus Christ are deeply grateful because He loved us first, and God the Father brought us to Jesus (No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.  ~ John 6:44 )

What a privilege for a wretch like me!  Yes, I was lost but then I was found, drawn to Jesus Christ by God the Father.  What a miracle!  Let me remember to say thank you every day of my life and throughout each of those days.  “For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” (as the great apostle Paul wrote to the new Christians in Greece,  Philippians 1:21).  Each breath I take is Christ, and when I die it will be gain because I will finally see the face of Jesus Christ.

My prayer is that my loved ones will follow…
