Why do I love Jesus?


    Why do I love Jesus? I can tell you that I love Jesus because he had chosen me before the foundation of the world, to give me faith to believe his word and be saved. I did not choose him, he chose me. According to Ephesians 1:3-5.
    "Blessed be the God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ according as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will."
    Unsaved friends! God has chosen to cause you to read this gospel message. All whom God has allowed to hear or read the gospel message have been chosen by him to believe and be saved.
Without faith it is impossible to please God and be saved. Faith is a gift of God: Ephesians 2: 8-9 tells us:
"For by grace are ye saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, not of works, lest any man should boast."
    I love Jesus because he gave me the faith to believe. Once I was dead to God in trespasses and sin, a natural man who could not understand the things of God according to 1 Cor 2:14:
"The natural man recieveth not the things of the spirit of God for they are foolishness unto him, neither can he know them because they are spiritually discerned."
    Jesus awakened me from my natural state and gave me new life according to Ephesians 2: 1-3.:
"And you hath he quickened (or made alive) who were dead in trespasses and sin: wherein in times past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lust of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind., and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others."
Therefore, I love Jesus because he chose me.
I love Jesus because he gave me faith to believe.
I love Jesus because once I was dead but he gave me new life.
I love Jesus because once I was blind, but now I see. Once I was lost but now I am found.
I love Jesus because he paid with his own blood all the debts I owe God.
I love Jesus because he will keep me secure forever according to his promise of 1 John 5: 11-13:
"And this is the record that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his son. He that hath the son hath life and he that hath not the son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the son of God That ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the son of God."
If you will hear with your heart this message of salvation, believe, and call upon the Lord, he will save you, and you too will have reason to love Jesus.
