Jesus Wants Us/Jesus Wants You

Last night in my Life Group, we talked about how it was intentional on Jesus’ part to come to earth and to be crucified for us. I asked the members to let it sink in a bit that Jesus intentionally came to die for us and then asked how it made them feel to know that Jesus knew the plan all along and followed through on the plan.

Responses were along the lines of loved, unworthy, grateful, in awe, etc.

I love the lyrics to the song What A Beautiful Name by Hillsong- “You didn’t want heaven without us, so Jesus you brought heaven down.”

With all of the craziness and turmoil around us at this time, just knowing that Jesus intentionally went to the cross, intentionally left his throne in heaven to be born as a human baby so he could grow to be our Savior, brings such calm to me.

Jesus wants us to enjoy heaven with him. He wants us to enjoy relationship with him.

Jesus wants you, yes you my reader, he wants you to enjoy heaven with him. He wants you to enjoy relationship with him. Jesus wants you. He doesn’t care if your life is a mess. He wants you.

I have shared the video What A Beautiful Name before, but I want to share it again. As you listen to it, think about how Jesus did not want heaven with you, so he brought heaven down.

Thank you for reading. God Bless.

  1. That’s a wonderful song of praise to our Lord. Betsy and I have performed it numerous times and I know for me it quickly puts my heart into its proper place before the Savior.

  2. Our pastor use to say, He would have come to earth, suffer and died and rose again for you, even if you were the only that believed in Him. That how personal He loves us. Great truth to base one faith on.

  3. I’m thankful that Jesus was and is intentional about loving us. It encourages me to be intentional in my life and in my pursuit of Him. I love that song. Thanks big brother! ❀️

  4. Yes love this song and this truth!!!

    And even as crazy as the world is now He will not leave us stranded, He will come back at just the right time. no matter how ugly it gets.

  5. I love that song by Hillsong! If you ever get a chance I would appreciate it if you read some of my blog posts! I just posted one that features a page from my mixed kids art journal and the inspiration behind it, which is also a Hillsong United song, β€œAnother In The Fire.” I just started working on creating a website and I am trying to find other people who’s sites speak to my heart and make a few friends on WordPress. I love everything you’ve written that I have read so far! I’ll definitely be keeping my eye out new posts from you! 😊
