Soulful Heather Headley with anointed Smokie Norful really sing and more importantly vocally celebrate Jesus is Love. This is truly an uplifting and a reassuring ballad that Jesus is love.
While googling the title of the song, it came to mind, “How do you know that Jesus is love?” I pray that your knowledge base of Jesus is not just through learned scripture but it’s experiential!
It’s a first- hand understanding that Jesus is love, light, our friend, Savior, our shepherd, healer, deliverer and authority. Depoending on your frame of reference he’s that and more! It’s a “ I know that I know, that I know experience !” Yes, for many it’s a song and a walk with God, an agape love relationship that has stood the test of time where God’s love abounds daily and most certaily in our 11th hour crises. We understand that in and during our aching and grieving moments, during our lonely moments , during our trying moments and especially in your waking moments the love of Jesus is evident!
I learned of Heaven’s Inspirations website, the selected scriptures appropriately speaks and references God’s Love http://www.heavensinspirations.com/word-love.html.
Oh friends the scriptures are good and necessary, but it’s like standing in the rain with a closed umbrella, there’s not much benefit in just holding the closed umbrella in our hands during a down pour! It’s true benefit occurs during opening of the umbrella to receive shelter from the storm.
Well, I’d like to believe It’s the same with having scriptures at the stroke of a mouse or in arms reach and not doing much more than reading the words. Our help is provided when we invite Jesus’ love to be the center of our lives, and then the wonderful scriptures are tucked in our heart and realized in our souls. It’s reminders of God’s love, the worth and weight of those divine instructions are beneficial if we trust the word of God, implement them, apply them, speak them, believe them for Jesus is Love. Amen
