Somebody loves me, answers my prayers
I love somebody, I know He cares
Somebody tells me not to repine (to fret or to be discontented)
That somebody is Jesus, and I know He’s mine
(From the song: Somebody loves me sung by the Gaithers)
Somebody loves us, you and me. Somebody cares about us. Somebody answers our prayers. That somebody is Jesus: Jesus the son of God, Jesus who became flesh, Jesus who died a bloody gruesome death, Jesus who rose from the grave, Jesus who ascended to heaven to prepare a place for you and me. Jesus loves us, you and me.
Somebody loves us. Jesus loves us. In 2012, He will not leave us nor forsake us. (Hebrews 13:5) God will supply all your needs. (Philippians 4:19) God will answer your prayers if you believe (Matthew 21:22). God will protect you, guide you and direct you. For somebody loves us: Jesus loves us.
If, and only if we step into God’s love, accept God’s greatest gift, His son Jesus we too will partake in this love, the greatest love ever, love that cares, loves that gives, love that saves. If, and only if we allow Jesus into our lives, we too will receive, we too will be blessed, we too will experience the grace, the joy, the peace and provision as can only be found in Jesus.
Somebody loves us, Jesus loves us. But we need to make a choice, we need to decide. Joshua said: “choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell” (Joshua 24:15) In our modern society we’re given many choices. We can choose who we will serve. Will it be wealth, fortune or fame? Will it be our fleshly desires, lust, immorality or addictions? Or will it be JESUS, Jesus Christ our Savior, deliverer and healer.
Like Joshua I want to declare: “but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” (Joshua 24:15) Today I wish to challenge you to do the same. Decide to serve God. Give Jesus a change. Let Him take control of you’re life for somebody loves you, that somebody is Jesus Christ.
