He first loved us


The Gospel can be summed up by saying that it is the tremendous, tender, 
compassionate, gentle, extraordinary, explosive, revolutionary revelation of Christ’s love. 
Catherine de Hueck Doherty - The Gospel Without Compromise

We, though, are going to love—love and be loved. 
First we were loved, now we love. 
He loved us first.

His love
crazy, passionate, unceasing love
flows in these veins
we were made for this
to walk as His heart on solid ground
leaving His imprint
where we touch, He touches
light shining to glorify His name

for this we were formed
to this we are called
witnesses, testaments 
to a love greater than all love




talking about His love at Jason's

I think this is my first visit to your blog. Thank you for stopping by Heart Choices and leaving your kind comment. I am noticing many blogging friends who have left comments here so I think I want to get to know you better. I also agree with your message. And I love that song. I remember hearing it the first time when Wynona Judd sang it many years ago on the TV show Touched by an Angel.

Blessings and love,
Debbie

God's love flowing in our veins creates an awesome though that we have more authority than we consider using in this world. Jesus loved us and gave his life for us that we might love others.
