Love saw a guilt of sin, and sought a basis of pardon.
Love saw the defilement of sin, and sought a way of cleansing.
Love saw the depravity of sin, and sought a means of restoration.
Love saw the condemnation of sin, and sought a method of justification.
Love saw the death of sin, and sought a way of life.
Love sought - Love found!

My Saviors Love
I stand amazed in the presence of Jesus the Nazarene,
and wonder how He could love me, a sinner, condemned, unclean.
For me it was in the garden He prayed, "Not My will, but Thine;"
He had no tears for His own griefs, but sweat-drops of blood for mine.
In pity angels beheld Him, and came from the world of light
to comfort Him in the sorrows He bore for my soul that night.
He took my sins and my sorrows, He made them His very own;
He bore the burden to Calv'ry and suffered and died alone.
When with the ransomed in glory His face I at last shall see,
'twill be my joy thru the ages to sing of His love for me.
How marvelous! how wonderful! and my song shall ever be:
How marvelous! how wonderful! if my Savior's love for me!

"And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us,
and hath given himself for us as an offering and a sacrifice
to God for a sweetsmelling savor."
~ Ephesians 5:2 ~
Try to approach each event of the day with this question:
"How would Jesus have shown His love in this situation?"
Have a blessed Lord's Day!
