Jesus Loves Me – Hymn #628 in Majesty Hymns


Jesus loves me! This I know,

For the Bible tells me so.

Little ones to Him belong;

They are weak, but He is strong.


(Chorus after each stanza.)

Yes, Jesus loves me!

Yes, Jesus loves me!

Yes, Jesus loves me!

The Bible tells me so.


Jesus loves me! This I know,

As He loved so long ago,

Taking children on His knee,

Saying, “Let them come to Me.”


Jesus loves me when I'm good,

When I do the things I should,

Jesus loves me when I'm bad,

Though it makes Him very sad.


Jesus loves me still today,

Walking with me on my way,

Wanting as a friend to give

Light and love to all who live.


Jesus loves me! He who died

Heaven’s gate to open wide;

He will wash away my sin,

Let His little child come in.


Jesus loves me! Loves me still

Tho' I'm very weak and ill;

That I might from sin be free

Bled and died upon the tree.


Jesus loves me! He will stay

Close beside me all the way;

Thou hast bled and died for me,

I will henceforth live for Thee.

Sermon Notes

Faith, Hope, Love #04



 I. What is Love?


In the Greek language, there are three separate Greek words that have been translated into the English language as “love.”

1) Eros is used in Greek mythology as the god of love, the son of Aphrodite. It is a love between the sexes, the love of sweethearts.

2) Phileo is a broader word, generally used for the love of friends. It is used to describe a friendly affection, kindness towards others, brotherly love, the love between family members, and the love a citizen has for his country. “America, love it or leave it,” would be this kind of love.

3) Agape is a higher type of love, a love that is all-absorbing, that completely dominates one’s whole being. This is God’s kind of sacrificial, giving, unselfish love that is used in the New Testament to describe God’s love to us and our love to God. It is this kind of love that God has “shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit” that we, as God’s children, can give to others. (partially from H. A. Ironside, 1 & 2 Corinthians, 191–192)




II. Why is Love the Greatest?  


greatest = what is truly significant and genuinely important. (Zodhiates, The Complete Word Study Dictionary: New Testament)


above all = ‘in addition to all these’ or ‘and to all these (add) love’ (Louw & Nida, Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament, 789)




III. How is Love to Be Shown? 

 

 

 

IV. How Can We Have This Kind of Love?

 

 

 

As of Friday afternoon, April 17, 2020, there have been 153,252 deaths around the world related to the coronavirus. In the United States, there have been 36,849 deaths. In Washington State, there have been 583 deaths, and in Stevens County, there has been ONE death.


The 2017 Center for Disease Control records show 55,672 deaths in the United States related to Influenza and Pneumonia, and 35,823 death related to alcohol. 



No matter which way death comes, and it will for “it is appointed unto men once to die,” what will happen to you? What will you do with Jesus? Will you call upon Him for salvation?
