"Yes, Jesus Loves Me"

Everyone knows the song, “Jesus Loves Me”, but most don’t know that there are several verses to it- some of the verses have been made up by individuals or children’s church groups that were not the original. One such verse that we used to sing at our church went like this: “Jesus, love me when I’m good, and I do the things I should. Jesus loves me when I’m bad, though it makes Him very sad. Yes, Jesus loves me. Yes, Jesus loves me. Yes, Jesus loves me, the Bible tells me so.”

“Glitter Girls” love Jesus and don’t want to do anything that will hurt Him, disappoint Him, make Him sad, bring shame or reproach to His name, or cause others not to desire to know Him. But the fact is that sometimes we do. Sometimes it’s not always wittingly, sometimes it’s innocently, sometimes we do it ignorantly.

Because I have been “liberated”, I know I don’t have to stay in the guilt and condemnation of my failure, short comings or sin. I know that Jesus still loves me and will forgive me when I repent and turn to Him. Even though I may have made Him sad, He doesn’t stop loving me.

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:35-39
