How HE Loves Us


I love that song. The words and music are beautiful and you just want to sing them as loud as you can- well I do.
It is so true. I mean God loves us all so! How many of you would be willing to give your child to die for the rest of the world? A world full of people who DO NOT love you. A world full of people who WANT your child to die. How willing would you be to LOVE those people. How willing would you be to give them the forgiveness they need? I went to an amazing retreat this weekend at our church and I just fell in love with this song! It is so so so true!! I have been thinking about this for the past few days and God just loves us so much. It is truly amazing to me. I can not imagine having to give my sweet little brothers or sister to die. I mean thinking of Anna Grace or Andrew scraping their knee makes me want to cringe. I can not imagine the pain God had to go through watching his perfect, sinless son be whipped, spit on, yelled at, killed. I mean it just makes my stomach turn, cringe in pain. How much do you love? How far are you willing to go to show love for God?
The point our guest speaker made this weekend that I just LOVE is this, Imagine that you find the cure for cancer...Are you going to just sit there and keep it to yourself? I mean you did find it! It is a miracle it will save millions of people!!!! You will just keep it to yourself though, right? NO! You are going to tell every doctor you can find and try and cure people! You will be saving lives. It is the EXACT same way with Christianity. Christians KNOW the cure for sinners. The cure to not go to hell and what do we do? Keep quiet..Not all of us, of course but a lot of us we do! Compare it to cancer..Would you keep the cure to Cancer a secret? Then why would you keep the cure to sinners and going to hell a secret? Just to keep you all thinking (:



How He Loves Us (David Crowder Band)

He is jealous for me

Love's 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.

Oh, how He loves us so
Oh, how He loves us
How He loves us so.
(x2)

Yeah, He loves us
Oh, how He loves us
Oh, how He loves us
Oh, how He loves.
(x2)

We are His portion and
He is our prize,
Drawn to redemption
by the grace in His eyes
If grace is an ocean, we're all sinking
So heaven meets earth like a sloppy wet kiss and my heart turns
violently inside of my chest
I don't have time to maintain these regrets when I think about the way


He loves us,
Oh, how He loves us
Oh, how He loves us
OH, how He loves
(x2)

Yeah, He loves us
Oh, how He loves us
Whoa, how He loves us
Whoa, how He loves.

Yeah, He loves us
He loves us
He loves us
He loves.

Yeah, He loves us
Whoa, how He loves us
Whoa, how He loves us
Whoa, how He loves

He loves us,
Whoa, how He loves us
Whoa, how He loves us
Whoa, how He loves
