Why I Love Jesus


Well, it seems I am going to interrupt my blogfast for this post. Stating my reasons for loving Jesus seems to be a worthy enough reason. I have been tagged for this meme by Victor at Time for Reflections and David at Wheat for Paradise.

Here are the rules for the meme:
*state 5 reasons why you love Jesus
*tag 5 other bloggers
*provide links to the blogs of those you tag as well as the one(s) who tagged you.

Here are 5 of the many reasons I love Jesus:

I love Jesus because He first loved me. He was patient with me especially when I strayed far from Him and chose a sinful life over Him; He waited with more patience than I deserved to be shown for my return to Him. I love Our Lord because not only did He die for me, but He continues to offer Himself to me in His Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity in Holy Communion. I love Jesus because He never ceases to amaze me with the ways in which He reveals Himself to me.
I love Jesus because He deserves and desires to be loved by me.
I will also add that I fall way short of loving Him the way He deserves and desires to be loved by me; it is only through our Blessed Mother that I can learn to love Him more and better.

Here are those I wish to tag:
Anne at Imprisoned in My Bones
Colleen at Thoughts on Grace
Matt at Sailing Against the Wind
Judy at BenMakesTen

I know I am one short, but so many have been tagged already.

Back to my regular scheduled blogfast :) See you all on Easter!

Closing Prayer

Psalm 45: Canticle of Love to the King

My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are fairer than the sons of men;
Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.

Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.
Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.

Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.
Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
