Joanne Lowe's Meditations: 'Love In Action'

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16 (King James Version)
     When Jesus died on the cross, it was love in action.  God gave His Son to die for us and Jesus came to earth to die for us.  Many times we tell people that we love them but we never do anything to prove that we love them.  O we may do something nice for them once or twice but God proves His love every day.
     Dottie Rambo wrote the beautiful and heart touching song “If That Isn’t Love”“He left the splendour of heaven knowing His destiny Was the lonely hill of Golgotha There to lay down His life for me.”  What unconditional love flowed from the heart of Jesus for you and for me when He left His Father and His home.
     Jesus knew that He was going to be cursed, mocked, ridiculed and beaten beyond recognition yet He willingly came to earth to die on the cross for us.  Just as God does not pull our strings and make us do anything so He didn’t make Jesus come to earth.  Jesus chose to come and die for us on the cross.
     No one loves us like Jesus loves us!  What a Saviour, this Jesus of Nazareth!  John W. Peterson wrote a beautiful cantata about Jesus “No Greater Love”.  Yes, there is no greater love than the love of Jesus.  What a privilege to be loved by the Saviour of the world.  Jesus, thank You for loving us.
     Heavenly Father, thank You for giving Your Son to die for us.  Jesus, thank You for coming to earth to die on the cross for us.  Thank You for putting Your love in action.  I love You, Heavenly Father.  I love You, Jesus.  I love You, Holy Spirit.  Amen.
