He Gets Me

I love Jesus.

His ways are scandalous compared to what we experience in the average church. He is a revolutionary. He is not bound by a set of dead rules. He doesn’t do it the way we’ve always done it. His love is truly amazing. He came to give sight to the blind, to set the captives free, to bind up the broken. He came for the lost, the hurting and the ones that don’t have it all together. He came to give hope to the weak, the sad and the lonely. He came to forgive our mistakes, big mistakes even. He didn’t come to call the righteous, and not the ones who think they are healthy, but those who know that they are sick. He is a Savior. He came to save us from the mess we have made of our lives. He came to those who will be honest and admit their weakness, their failures, their imperfections and their sin. This is me, and this is why I love him, because he first loved me. Jesus is not looking down on us. He is looking straight into our eyes. His hand is gently holding my chin, lifting my bowed head to look into my eyes. He accepts me. He is pleading with us to accept his forgiveness. He forgives what we can’t forgive in ourselves. Jesus is not ashamed of us or anything we have done. He understands us.

He is with me in my difficult circumstances. He knows the thoughts and intentions of my heart. He understands what I don't. I know that he will walk me through anything. I do not ever have to be afraid or ashamed to go to him for help. God, I love him. 

He came to give us life.

There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him.
John 3:18

Feeling thankful today.
