Why don't you love Jesus?
Can you remember the 1975 song that was done by Jimmy Buffet? Let me refresh your memory " My head hurts, my feet stink, and I don't love Jesus (oh my Lordy it's that...) It's that kind of mornin'
Really was that kind of night
Tryin' to tell myself that my condition is improvin'
And if I don't die by Thursday I'll be roarin' Friday night
It is a great tragedy that many non-Christians see slavery, not freedom in the Love of Jesus Christ. I often get asked this question, if God is a loving father why do bad things happen? My answer we are living in a fallen world, do we want more evidence than this?
1) Give thanks to the God of gods. His love endures forever.Psalm 136:2,
2) This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. 10 This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
3) This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. 1 John 3:16
We have designed, "I love Jesus you should too" t-shirt to let let folks know that is one of the uniqueness of Christianity. His love is not based on merit.
In addition Jesus himself became a perfect sign of God's overwhelming Love by taking on the punishment due to man because of sin and he became the perfect example of his own teaching of the truth about man by embracing the wood of the cross. He emptied himself, becoming weak, taking the form of a slave--abandoning for a little while his radiant, overwhelming majesty-- to win us (individually and collectively), to woo us, to take us to himself and become one with us, to abandon
his life for us and to hand over his life to us.
Please go and get your "I love Jesus you should too" t-shirt.

because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
and recovery of sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free,
