Jesus is on Our Side

I was lost
I was in chains
The world had a hold of me

My heart was a stone
I was covered in shame
When He came for me

I couldn’t run, couldn’t run from His presence
I couldn’t run, couldn’t run from His arms

Jesus, He loves me, He loves me, He is for me
Jesus, how can it be, He loves me, He is for me

And it was a fire
Deep in my soul
I’ll never be the same

I stepped out of the dark
And into the light
When He called my name

I couldn’t run, couldn’t run from His presence
I couldn’t run, couldn’t run from His arms

He holds the stars and He holds my heart
With healing hands that bear the scars
The rugged cross where He died for me
My only hope, my everything

~ “Jesus Loves Me” from the album Love Ran Red, by Chris Tomlin


I absolutely love the words to this song. Although they are simply stated and well known truths, if you really meditate on them–they are transforming!

Jesus, He loves me, He loves me, He is for me

What if we really took a moment to think about these statements?

Jesus loves me! He loves YOU! And His love for us will always be the same. 

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. ~Romans 8:38-39

Jesus, how can it be, He loves me, He is for me

Jesus is for me! He is for YOU! He has our best interests at heart, and he will never leave us or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). He is on our side!

What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? ~Romans 8:31

Take comfort in the fact that Jesus loves you and that Jesus is for you today! ❤
