He has taken me to the banquet hall, and his banner over me is love. (Song of
Do you believe that the love that Jesus has for you is much much greater than the love
that the woman here had for her lover?
God says, "I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with lovingkindness.
Everlasting love can come only from an everlasting God. The Bible says,
”But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died
for us.” (Romans 5:8)
John, the Apostle writes,
How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of
God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not
know him. (1 John 3:1)
The Apostle Paul writing to the Ephesians says,
And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with
all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to
know this love that surpasses knowledge - that you may be filled to the measure of all the
fullness of God. (Ephesians 3:17-19)
The love that Jesus has for you is one that surpasses knowledge and if you have to really
grasp how wide, long, high and deep it is, you would need more than a lifetime.
Yes, Jesus loves you, much more than you can ever imagine, much more than you can
ever grasp. In fact, the banner that he's held over you is the banner of love.
