Why I Love Jesus

I've been tagged by my friend Victor for a meme called Why I Love Jesus.

The rules for this meme are:
- Those tagged will share 5 things they love about Jesus
- Those tagged will tag 5 other bloggers
- Those tagged will provide a link to those they have tagged as well as the originator of the tag; to encourage others to visit them.

To quote Victor: 'Now this is a great idea because as a Christian community we should encourage each other and visit each others' Blogs if only to say "Hello". I know we don't always have something to say in the comments box; but just "Hello" would encourage Bloggers in that they know they have been visited and their efforts appreciated.' [Amen, Victor]

Here is a list of blogs I encourage you to visit, starting with Victor's. Just click each name to visit the blog--and remember to leave a comment!

If I've just tagged you, please post a comment on this entry with a link to your meme. Hopefully you will get around to it more quickly than I did!

My Reasons
How I'd answer this question probably depends on the day. Here's what comes to mind as to why I love Jesus (in no particular order):
  1. Because He loved me first. He loved me while I was yet in my sin, and unlovable in my own eyes.
  2. Because he set me free from my guilt and shame. He bore my sins and gave me His righteousness. He removed my sins as far as the east is from the west. (Psalm 103:12)
  3. Because although He lives in a high and holy place, he still chooses to dwell with me. (Isaiah 57:15)
  4. Because he gives me rest when I am weary and burdened. (Matthew 11:28)
  5. Because He is encouraging and enabling me to love others as He loves me. There was a time when it was very difficult for me to open my heart to another person, but now I am finding delight in making many new friends.
What about YOU? Why do you love Jesus?

What an encouragment to read why you love Jesus - He most certainly IS loveable! I, too, am grateful for all He's done for us.

Jara said...

Thanks for tagging me Sarah! There are SOOOOO many reasons I love Jesus, it'll be hard to condense to 5, but I'll do my best:) Thanks for posting this encouragement!

Sarah said...

Victor - Thank you! I always enjoy your comments.

Tracy - Thanks for visiting my blog. Have a blessed day.

Jara - You're welcome. I'll look forward to your entry.

The problem is keeping it to 5...I'm thinking on the post, Sarah. (And loved your 5 reasons...)

Michael said...

I really enjoyed reading your five!

I hope you are having a Blessed Lent!

Jenny said...

Alright, I've got to figure this tag thing out, may be a few days but I will do a post!

Sarah said...

K&C's mom - I'll look forward to your post. It is hard to think of just five reasons, isn't it?

Michael - Thanks for visiting my blog.

Jenny - Will look forward to your reasons. To do the tag, you just include links to five blogs in your post, and then you leave a comment on the five blogs to let the authors know you've tagged them.
