Spiritual Sundays

Hi everyone and welcome to Charlotte and Ginger's Spiritual Sundays where you can go and be encouraged and inspired. Please click on the link http://bloggerspirit.blogspot.com/
or the SS button on my sidebar to visit with these two lovely hostesses and their guests.

I had been on a bit of a break with my son home for Christmas but I am back to share a wonderful devotional I read just last night. Are you looking for love? Then read this for some inspiration. It is penned by Anne Cetas and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

I read these words on a young woman's personal Web site: "I just want to be loved - and he has to be amazing!"

Isn't that what we all want - to be loved, to feel cared for by someone? And so much the better if he or she is amazing!

The One who fits that description most fully is Jesus Christ. In a display of unprecedented love, He left His Father in heaven and came to earth as the Baby we celebrate at Christmas {Luke 2}. Then, after living a perfect life, He gave His life as an offering to God on the cross in our behalf {John 19:17-30}. He took our place because we needed to be rescued from our sin and its death penalty. "While we were still sinners, Christ died for us" {Romans 5:8}. Then 3 days later, the Father raised Jesus to life again {Matt. 28: 1-8}.

When we repent and receive Jesus' gift of amazing love, He becomes our Saviour {John 1:12; Romans 5:9}, Lord {John 13:14}, Teacher { Matt. 23:8}, and Friend {John 15:14}.
"Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God!" {1 John 3:1}.

Looking for someone to love you? Jesus loves us so much more than anyone else possibly could. And He is truly amazing!

THE WONDER OF IT ALL -
JUST TO THINK THAT JESUS LOVES ME.

Howdy Sandi
So glad you had a blessed Christmas holiday .
Thank you and God bless you for sharing this beautiful post .
It really helped me to remain firm about someone I have been praying for this week ! The individual suffered an unexpected break up and I felt like maybe I was a bit too preachy in reminding them of Jesus love ! Thank you for the reminder of just how deep and perfect the Love of Christ is .
Until next time
Happy Trails
