I Love You

| | Comments (3)

Today's reading: Luke 22:1-24:53

I hope you all had a good Easter weekend, and trust that you benefitted from reading the account of Jesus' arrest, crucifixion, burial and resurrection in Luke.

Before starting into a new Book this week, let's spend one final day considering what we took in, considered and learned from the account of Jesus' arrest, death, resurrection and his final time on earth. As I read through these chapters, God's love for us was so evident leading up to Jesus' ultimate act of love through crucifixion. Here are some of Jesus' "I love you" actions and words that stood out to me from Luke's account.

  • The caring and tender way Jesus interacts with the disciples in the upper room (Luke 22:14-23).
  • How Jesus telling Peter that Peter will deny Him includes these reassuring words, "when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers" (Luke 22:32).
  • Jesus showing compassion during his arrest by healing the guard's ear (Luke 22:51).
  • The manner in which Jesus bears the hatred and cruel treatment that has come upon Him as He stands before Pilate and Herod and is taken away and handled by the soldiers.
  • Jesus' care and concern for the women who were mourning his imminent crucifixion (Luke 22:28-31).
  • Jesus' interaction with the criminal who asks Jesus to remember him (Luke 23:43).
  • Jesus' words, "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do" (Luke 23:34).

How grateful I am for God's love, and what Jesus willingly did for me.

What "I love you" actions or words stood out to you from one or more of the accounts of Jesus' final days on earth? How will you pass on God's love to someone this week? Tami

Matt28:20 " I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Luke 24:45 "He opened their minds to understand the Scriptures.
47 "for forgiveness of sins"
49 "I am sending the promise of my Father upon you."

"I love you" is shown in the above verses. " I love you" is definite shown in His prayer in the Garden,during the trial and on the Cross.
Who would have endured some treatment if it were not for " I love you"?

Jesus thank You for Your amazing Love for me and for all.

Well said Tami! Thank-you for reminding us of how Jesus' kindness is seen throughout the details of every step of his journey on this earth. I love how Jesus continues to believe in Peter after Peter's denial. Now that's grace!

There are many “I Love You’s” in these three chapters. But the thing that spoke to me was Ch. 22:8, 15 “Go and make preparations for us to eat the Passover.” And v.15 “I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you, before I suffer.
I think about the Israelites in Egypt and the Passover Lamb, blood on the door post, and it all came to fruition with Jesus. “What great Love”
