Jesus: The Heart of Love

Isaiah 52:14” 14 But many were amazed when they saw him. His face was so disfigured he seemed hardly human, and from his appearance, one would scarcely know he was a man”. The Son of God suffered so much at the hands of his creation; His face was disfigured from the beating he took. Jesus had such a warm heart for his beloved that he went through unimaginable pain and torture to secure our salvation. Isaiah 53:5” He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem.”

Jesus has such a heart of fire for us. He freely gave himself as a sacrificial lamb. He took our punishment and spent three days in hell for us so we could once again be sinless before the Lord. What type of a heart would show, love beyond human understanding, but the heart of God. Every Christian on this planet should have a warm heart toward the heart of Jesus. Ephesians 3:19 “and to know this love that surpasses knowledge–that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” His love is like no other love;it just keeps giving and giving.

The love of Jesus is better than life itself and when we reject, spit upon and downright abuse it. His love keeps on loving and giving. Isaiah 55:8 “”My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the LORD. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.” Truly God’s ways and thoughts are beyond ours: We rebelled against the Lord in the garden, we crucified the Son on Calvary but he keeps on loving us and pouring out his heart lavishly upon us.

    I only pray that more people begin to grasp the magnitude of this. It is through understanding that mankind is responsible for the suffering of Jesus (that means me)- that it is possible for me to love as He loved – forgiving when it may not make sense to others.
    He willing paid the penalty for my sins, suffering incomprehensible pain, because of His great love. It puts any ‘offense’ that someone may have against me in perspective. It’s insignificant by comparison. When we accept forgiveness we are commanded to offer it, which the Holy Spirit will enable us to do.
