Oh, How He Loves Us


Contributed by Mike Scott, Elder Overseer of Web/Graphic Arts/Media at Image Church

He is jealous for me, Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,

Bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy.

When all of a sudden, I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,

And I realize just how beautiful You are,

And how great Your affections are for me.

And oh, how He loves us oh

Oh how He loves us,

How He loves us all

This song has become very dear to our church and sung out by our congregation numerous Sundays in the past. The amazing thing about the song is the lyrics. REALLY!! Sometimes the lyrics can actually get lost because the performer has done such an excellent job of the arrangement. So if you need to go back and read them again, please do and let it soak in for a few minutes.

Sometimes in life, the obvious gets overlooked and passed over. We hear that God loves us. Have you ever put into perspective why God loves you as an individual? The Bible talks about how He desires to have a personal relationship with you as an individual. We can talk to Him, the Creator of everything. We have become numb to how AMAZING that is. Please watch the video below, and maybe it will give you some perspective.

Ephesians 1:3-5 – Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, 4 even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love 5 he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will.  ESV

I don’t want to ruin the moment by rambling on. Just take some time to think about how much the Creator of everything loved you as an individual to extend the gift of salvation. Why should we all not want to worship and serve Him!
