Topic: An Amazing Love

Bible Verse for Today: “For I am convinced that neither death nor life … neither the present nor the future, nor any powers … nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” – Romans 8:38-39 NIV

May 1, 2022 Bible Verse | Devotional Message

Samuel Crossman’s life was complicated. Living in the 17th century during a time of religious divisions, he was ejected from the Church of England even though he was a minister. During his exile, he wrote a poem called, “My Song Is Love Unknown.” This later became a hymn (with music by John Ireland).

In the face of conflicts, Crossman made clear that his focus was on Jesus. The song of his life, he wrote, was a love so profound that no one could understand it. It was “love to the loveless” that showed how He loved everyone. Crossman was amazed that Jesus could love him so: “Who am I, that for my sake my Lord should take frail flesh and die?”

Jesus showed His love by coming from Heaven to bring salvation and forgiveness. Some respond with praises, “resounding all the day hosannas to their King.” Yet, like the throngs as Jesus entered Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, they could turn around and want a man like Barabbas to go free but cry for Jesus to be crucified. Yet Jesus still went to the cross, showing compassion even for those who crucified Him.

Crossman knew that Jesus was his friend “in whose sweet praise I all my days could gladly spend.”

Remember that Jesus loves you! And He longs to have a love relationship with you – a divine love, an eternal love.

Prayer
Dear Lord Jesus, thank You for Your love for me. I love You! In Your name, amen.
