What could move His heart towards us?

from Mary Winslow's, "Heaven Opened"

We were traveling the broad road to eternal
woe when Jesus met us and turned our feet
into the narrow road that leads to eternal life.

What could move His heart towards us?

It was love; love from everlasting, and love to
everlasting. And it is that same love that still
watches over us day by day, hour by hour,
moment by moment.

And although we often loath ourselves, His
love never varies. Is it not surprising that
He can love us while we hate ourselves?

But such is our Jesus.

He is ours, and we are His.
