Love Them Like Jesus

"Just love them like Jesus, carry them to Him His yoke is easy, His burden is light You don't need the answers to all of life's questions Just know that He loves them and stay by their side Love them like Jesus" One of the hardest things I've been called to do. Love people like Jesus. I'm always searching for answers; when people come to me and ask for prayer I always want to give them an answer to their pain. I hate to see people hurting; it breaks my heart deeply. So when they are torn in the middle between something I want to be able to say "God told me this." Or "here's everything you need to know." But I can't. I don't have that wisdom nor do I attempt to. (although sometimes that would be great.) Instead Jesus comes and He whispers to me. "Love them like Jesus." You don't need the answers to all of life's questions, just know that He loves them and stay by their side." How many times do we want to go into a situation saying that we know exactly what to do and we can be 100 percent sure of it. But instead He whispers "love them like Jesus." Some people might think great all I have to do is love them. But "love them like Jesus" that's a whole challenge in its self. Jesus has this passionate, undying, fiery burning love. Love that stands there while people spit in His face and curse at His name. Love that doesn't fight back when being nailed to a cross. Love that is silent yet speaks louder than anything they've ever heard. That is what we're called to do. Love them like Jesus. Wouldn't it be great to know why people die of cancer? Why do little girls get murdered? Why are homes taken away from innocent people? How come marriages fall apart? Etc but no Jesus says just to love them. He doesn't give the answers He just says love perhaps that's what Jesus did to people. He loved them. He didn't give an answer to every situation but He met them where they were at and He loved them. He didn't condemn those seeking Him; He loved them. The call is to love them. Everything Jesus said and did was motivated by love. We are called to do the same. This is the challenge I've been faced with. I love people but do I love them like Jesus... probably not. In situations where I don't know what to do and I ask "ok God what do I do?" "Give me some words of encouragement." He whispers "Love them like Jesus." So when you don't know what to do just love people like Jesus. When it breaks your heart, Love them like Jesus. When you don't know what to do anymore, Love them like Jesus. When everything seems dark and hopeless, Love them like Jesus. Everything you do, Every breath you breathe, Should start with "I love them like Jesus." Believe me this is a challenge for me. To love someone like Jesus loves me; loves them. But it's the answer for everything. "You're holding her hand, you're straining for words You're trying to make sense of it all They're desperate for hope, darkness clouding their view They're looking to you Just love them like Jesus, carry them to Him His yoke is easy, His burden is light You don't need the answers to all of life's questions Just know that He loves them and stay by their side Love them like Jesus Lord of all creation holds our lives in His hands The God of all the nations holds our lives in His hands The Rock of our salvation holds our lives in His hands He cares for them just as He cares for you." Love them like Jesus
