Jesus’ Love

I read somewhere that swimming in the Gulf Stream off the coast of Florida can take your breath away.  The waters on either side of this “river within the ocean” tend to be murky but within the Gulf Stream, they are clear – so clear that they allow such deep views as to overwhelm the unprepared swimmer.  Encounters with truth can have the same effect.  One moment, our minds are murky, trying to grasp matters.  Then, the situation becomes clear and we are able to glimpse the depths with wonder.

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is a truth that can be understood and appreciated by both the simpleminded and the sophisticated. I was reminded of this recently as I heard the band Jars of Clay give an explanation for a song they occasionally perform.  The song is titled Jesus’ Blood Never Failed Me Yet (click Here to hear the song).  It was first recorded in the early 1970’s from a homeless man in London.  As the original tape was being copied, the sound engineer let it play in a continuous loop as he went to fetch a cup of coffee.  Upon his return, he was surprised to find the area outside the studio – normally noisy and lively – subdued, with a few listeners weeping quietly.

The simplicity of the Gospel can be grasped by a man living in deplorable conditions as well as those of us who live in comparative luxury.  It can also be grasped by our kindergarten students as well as our seniors.  We desire that our students grasp the simple but unfathomable truth of the Gospel:  that the God of the universe so loved us that He willingly gave His own Son (who also willingly gave Himself) as a sacrifice for our sins so that we can be restored to fellowship with Him.  It is a truth so deep it can take the breath away.
