"Jesus is the sweetest name I'll ever, ever know. And He's just the same as His holy name. And that's the reason why I love Him so. Jesus is the sweetest name I know." - Lyrics by Jimmy Swaggart. Now, according to this musical artist, the reason he loves Jesus so much is because Jesus' name is the sweetest name he knows!

Why do you love Jesus so? What makes Jesus so attractive to you? We have learned about the Seventh-day Adventist belief on the Bible, the Trinity, and God The Father. As we dive into God The Son, what is it about Jesus that makes you so thankful you are alive? What is it about Jesus that brings a tear to your eye? What is it about Jesus that fills your heart to gratefulness?

Mother Theresa penned these words, "I see Jesus in every human being. I say to myself, this is hungry Jesus, I must feed him. This is sick Jesus. This one has leprosy or gangrene; I must wash him and tend to him. I serve because I love Jesus." Theresa loves Jesus because she sees Jesus in every human being.

Norman Vincent Peale posits, "God loves you. He wants you to succeed. He wants the best for you." Norman loved God because He first love him. If you were to ask anyone who is a follower of the Master Jesus, "Why do you love Him?" you will find many answers that are a personal reflection of their intimate relationship with Jesus. 

Today, you will hear the reason I love Jesus. You will hear a story in the New Testament that has forever changed the way I see Jesus, love Jesus, serve Jesus, and am willing to die for Jesus. In this Biblical narrative you will see a glimpse of Jesus that I hope will fill your heart with gratitude and deep abiding love for God.

May you, this Sabbath, find that which you've been looking for. May you find this narrative in scripture to be the answer to your deepest prayers!
