Jesus Heart Love
Page 6

Altar Table

Jesus IconDespite my failings, I still had a very happy boyhood. The people at the Redeemer really cared for youngsters like me, and on my Confirmation day, I would have willingly fought and died for this my church. On that special Sunday, God spoke from his Word and my whole world lit up. Jesus was challenging me personally! The solemn clerical drones of the Rector reverberated around the church, but I couldn't hear them for the strange and wonderful whisper of Jesus heart love had touched my soul. The reading challenged me, "Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world."

Live a Holy Life

Stained Glass WindowWham! There it was! Love others and live a holy life! Care for those in need, and turn this concern into action. Above all, God wanted me to live a dedicated life of Jesus heart love for Him. "Yes, Lord," I replied from the depths of my heart. Jesus' still small voice echoed back, "You are my child, I love you." Rainbows of glimmering sunlight streamed through stained glass unto the altar table. A fresh assurance lit up my newly discovered sight. The minister said, "The blood of our Lord Jesus Christ, which was shed for thee, preserve thy body and soul unto everlasting life." My heart leaped with joy with Jesus love! It seemed almost too wonderful to be true that Jesus loved me! I wanted to love and serve Him all my days in return.
