Jesus Loves Me
In the Word
Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these” (Matthew 19:14).
Of the Word
Jesus loves me! This I know, For the Bible tells me so.
Little ones to Him belong; They are weak, but He is strong.
Yes, Jesus loves me! Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me! The Bible tells me so.
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8).
“Jesus Loves Me” is often thought of as a children’s hymn, but it is really for God’s children of all ages! The words remind us that the Bible, God’s Word, is the source of our faith in Jesus.
What does the Bible tell us? It tells us that we sin and do things that build a wall between us and God. God’s Word also shows us our Savior, the “wall-breaker,” the One who saves us from our sin. God’s Word in its entirety points to Jesus, who died for us, washed away our sin, and opened wide the gates of heaven for us. “Yes, Jesus loves me! The Bible tells me so.”
Walking with my Lord
Loving Savior, You paid the bitter price for sin! Give me the desire to pass Your love on to others. Together we will sing, “Yes, Jesus loves me!” In Your name, Amen.
