Because Of Jesus

Because Of Jesus

Because of Jesus, I know that I love you.
Because of Jesus, I want the best for you.
He did a work within my heart;
His love to me He did impart.
I love you – because of Jesus.

When I was lost and all alone,
Jesus melted my heart of stone;
Now there’s a wonderful change within;
My heart is renewed because of Him.
God helped me to reach out again;
I love you – because of Jesus.

There was a time I didn’t care.
My heart was wounded beyond repair;
But then God’s Spirit worked within;
Repaired the damage caused by sin;
I know it’s only because of Him.
I love you – because of Jesus.

There’s a change I now can see;
He healed my heart – He set me free;
Transformed by Love eternally.
I love you – because of Jesus.

Matthew 6:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Recently, I have been thinking about how the Lord has enabled me to care for the clients at Kelowna’s Gospel Mission. Saying, “I love you” to anyone other than my immediate family has always been extremely hard for me due to physical and mental abuse in my past. Though I may have a hard time saying it verbally, I know that I love the clients here – because this is where my heart is, where I put my time and many times my treasures.

It is the time we spend investing in the lives of others that will make the difference to them – in time and in eternity – the time we spend representing Jesus and being like Him in this dark world.

Matthew 9:36 But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.

Jude 1:21-23 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
