Jesus’ love for us, is truly unfathomable!
Jesus’ love for us is truly unconditional. No matter how many times we stray, He will gently call us to return . . . continuously! Living without Him leaves us with a void and despair that is never ceasing. Nothing can fill the empty space within your soul, if joy is sought elsewhere.
Life with Him is much more abundant and fulfilling. For He IS love. He IS joy. He IS comfort. He IS strength. He IS peace. He simply IS . . . all things good . . . our Everything!
The King of Love My Shepherd Is
Henry W. Baker, Hymns Ancient and Modern (London: 1868)
Taken from Cyber Hymnal
The King of love my Shepherd is,
Whose goodness faileth never,
I nothing lack if I am His
And He is mine forever.
Where streams of living water flow
My ransomed soul He leadeth,
And where the verdant pastures grow,
With food celestial feedeth.
Perverse and foolish oft I strayed,
But yet in love He sought me,
And on His shoulder gently laid,
And home, rejoicing, brought me.
In death’s dark vale I fear no ill
With Thee, dear Lord, beside me;
Thy rod and staff my comfort still,
Thy cross before to guide me.
Thou spread’st a table in my sight;
Thy unction grace bestoweth;
And O what transport of delight
From Thy pure chalice floweth!
And so through all the length of days
Thy goodness faileth never;
Good Shepherd, may I sing Thy praise
Within Thy house forever.
Zephaniah 3:17 (KJV)
17 The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.
John 3:16 (KJV)
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Romans 5:8 (KJV)
8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
1 John 3:1 (KJV)
Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
