Deep Deep Love

Are you ever amazed when you learn a new truth about our Heavenly Father that you never thought of before?  I was just listening to abidingradio.org (which, if you haven’t found it yet, is a wonderful place to find GOOD God-honoring, holy, beautiful Christian music) and a song came on from the Steve Petit Evangelistic Team’s album  Come Boldly.  The song was called Deep Deep Love  and spoke about the Father’s love to send his Son to die.  But the line that really spoke to my heart said this:

 Deeper than the thorns that dug into his brow

is the love of a Son that died for everyone. 

Love so amazing, deep deep love, Love so divine, deep deep love;

Love never failing to hear my call, demands my soul, my life, my all.

I often think about the Father’s love, perhaps because I am a mother and can comprehend in some small way the sacrifice that it would cost to give my son.  I don’t know if I ever thought of Jesus’ love in this way – that he resigned Himself to His Father’s will to die.  He could have rebelled, but He didn’t, He surrendered.

We are all guilty of rebellion in our lives, but I’m especially thinking of any teens that are out there in webland and may read this.  Are you rebellious when your parents ask something of you that is not to your liking?  Think of Jesus.  It seems to take SO LITTLE for our hearts to rebel – how sad.  Can we ever comprehend the love of Jesus?  You may say, dear teen, “but Mrs. Mac, you’re old as dirt.  Of course you understand it.  I’m just a teen.”  Don’t believe Satan’s lie, my friend.  Think of your favorite subject: a sport, a hobby, a girl or guy.  Think about how much you know about that.  Why?  Because you love it or him or her! And the more you know about that subject or person, the more you love it.  (Hopefully :)) It’s the same with Jesus.  Learn all you can, because someday, maybe sooner than you think, you will be seeing Him face to face; and the love that you see in those divine eyes will break your heart, and mine too!

 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me;

I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.Mt 11:29

I've been blogging for several years now, and continue to be thankful for the opportunity to share my heart, as well as hone my writing skills. When I was urged to write about my passion, three things came to mind: my God, my family, and music. I am a born-again believer of Jesus Christ. My doctrine is Baptist, my stand is fundamental. I love the Word of God and want to share how it has changed my life. It is my primary passion; however, my family is the close second! God has blessed me with a wonderful godly husband who has led me and discipled me in my walk with Christ. God also gave us three wonderful children who, along with their spouses, all love the Lord and are passionate soldiers in God's army as well. Add seven grandchildren, and my heart is overflowing with praise to my God! Music comes in third and is a great burden on my heart. We all need to find what is acceptable and pleasing to God in this area. Like every area of the Christian life, we cannot just choose music because we like it.
