I love the LORD, because… Psalm 116:1
This is a personal testimony. I want to glorify the Lord Jesus by testifying why I love Him in hopes that you will also love Him.
First, I love Jesus for what He has done for me in the PAST. As it says in 1 John 4:19, I love Him because He first loved me. He loved me while I was still in my sin (Rom. 5:8). He loved me so much that He paid the debt of my sin by shedding His blood for me at Calvary! He saved me from hell and sealed me with His Holy Spirit. Hallelujah!
Second, I love Jesus for what He is doing for me NOW. He intercedes for me at the right hand of God. He strengthens me to live in a hard world. He hears when I call for help. He comforts me in my sorrows. He provides for all my needs. He promised never to leave me or forsake me. He is with me wherever I go. He is conforming me into His image! Glory!
Thirdly, I love Jesus for what He is going to do for me in the FUTURE. He will keep that which I’ve committed unto Him against that day. He promised to come again and take me out of present evil world to be with Him forever. He will transform my vile body to be like His glorified body. Praise God!
Because of these great truths, how can I help but love Him!
Don’t you love Him to? Does it show?
