Love worth dying for…
As women, we are all looking for that one, that man that will love us enough to die for us. We watch the movies, for instance, Braveheart. Where men will stop at nothing to defend there woman. What’s behind that action? What are they trying to prove? Do we want them to die?
No, of course not.
We desire to know that they love us so much that they would die for us.
It’s the love we are after. The love that even death can’t break. The love that we fight for until we take our last breath.
Now I’m not going to say that jumping in front of a train or bus or even a bullet isn’t heroic but how about being beaten. Enduring the flesh being ripped off your body while you are ridiculed. Having your bones broken and spears driven into your side only to be nailed to a cross to suffocate and die.
We already have that man who went to that extent for us, Jesus. Next time you hear “Jesus loves you” I want you to think of THAT image, Not the Sunday school song. Once we embrace that love, once we realize how special we all are that he endured all that for us then we can live knowing that that love has already been poured out for us!
So live in the reality that Jesus loves you that much!
Now I know we live here on this earth and you’re saying I want someone to hug and kiss me and hold me here. That’s only natural. God created us for relationship. First a relationship with him then a relationship with others. Find yourself a man that loves Jesus and you will find yourself a man that loves you!
If you already have a man… stay tuned there is more to this story to come…
“But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.”
Isaiah 53:5 NIV
