Song of a Child and Song of the Ages

Three year old, Julie rocked and sang to her doll, “Jesus loves me this I know for the Bible tells me so.  Little ones to Him belong for they are weak, but, He is strong”.

As I listened to that sweet child voice sing the same words I learned as a child, I was stopped in my tracks.  Yes!  The brilliance of God’s love is that a 3 year old understands it.  It does not take a PhD in theology or a degree in astrophysics to understand and accept this profound truth.

I am saddened when I hear highly intelligent people scoff at what they call the “simple-minded” message of Christianity.  “It is too simple, there has to be more than that.”

The absolute brilliance of Christ’s message of love is its simplicity.  It is not God’s will that anyone should perish.  The book of Second Peter tells us “He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone come to repentance” (2nd Peter 3:9).  So everyone----small children, big children, adults, the intellectually weak and the intellectually strong can grasp this truth, have faith, ask forgiveness, and have eternal life.

Sing with me and believe, “Jesus loves me this I know for the Bible tells me so”.

Thank You, Lord, for the brilliant simplicity of your love and how through repentance and faith in You we can have eternal life.
