How He Loves

I wanted to share one of my all-time favorite songs with you. Let the lyrics move you and the beat slide through your veins…He loves us SO much. No matter our past, no matter our flaws. He is so jealous for you…

 

 

“How He Loves”

David Crowder Band

He is jealous for me,
Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,
Bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden,
I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
And I realize just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.

And oh, how He loves us so,
Oh how He loves us,
How He loves us all

Yeah, He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves.
Yeah, He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves.

We are His portion and He is our prize,
Drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes,
If grace is an ocean, we’re all sinking.
So Heaven meets earth like an unforseen kiss,
And my heart turns violently inside of my chest,
I don’t have time to maintain these regrets,
When I think about, the way…

He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Oh how He loves.
Yeah, He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves.

    Oh my gosh, Morlan, this is just an incredible song, and paired with this representation of a crucifixion following a beating that delivered lashes one short of a death sentence – it is overwhelming. I don’t think many people I know – and certainly not I – can even imagine the torturous death that Jesus knew He would have to suffer in the limitation of a man’s body. I am not even sure this incredibly well done and so very disturbing representation can even capture all elements that every part of His body suffered for hours upon hours.

    It took me many years of reading and thinking to come to what was a startling conclusion for me when it really made sense on every level – that God/Jesus/the Holy Spirit chose this incredible act of total self sacrifice as THE method of redeeming humanity from the limitations and bondage of complete narcissism because THIS VERY ACT IS THE ONE THING that the power we know as the complete opposite of real love – evil – IS INCAPABLE of doing. The personification the Bible uses to represent this is Lucifer, Satan, the devil, etc. And, we know that this force only comes to copy and consume because it has no creative powers of its own. And when it destroys, it not only kills, it consumes to feed itself.

    So for the God/man “Jesus” to preempt Satan and “at the appointed time” to GIVE HIMSELF as a sacrifice just blew the whole concept of killing and consuming out of the water – an act that the non creative, unable-to-love- anyone-but-itself force we call evil has yet to be able to imitate in any form or fashion.

    Yes, there are people who sacrifice their lives for others – for good cause and for bad. But, Satan has yet to do that himself.

    And one more thing that maybe you have thought about before – evil spelled backwards is LIVE. They are total opposites, for now and for eternity.
