Somebody Jesus Loves

Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “Every man is entitled to be valued by his best moments.” The wonderful truth about Jesus is that he loves us in spite of our worst moments!

The 12 apostles made all kinds of mistakes as they tried to follow Jesus. They vied with each other for positions of authority. They were rude and condescending toward some people. Their faith often wavered, as did their courage.

John was well aware of his short-comings as a disciple of Jesus. Yet he knew that Jesus loved him in spite of his mistakes. In John 21:20, he describes himself as, “the disciple whom Jesus loved”.

We need to remember that Jesus loves us in spite of what we do wrong, and that there is nothing we could ever do to make him love us more.

I’m just somebody Jesus loves, and I encourage you to describe yourself that way too.
