If That Isn't Love...

As you're probably aware, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL) I discuss music, from time to time.

Recently, a Facebook (FB) friend sent a link to a song that I thought was lovely.  And, very suitable for Easter.

It is by Dottie Rambo and is entitled, If That Isn't Love.  Here is a link to listen and/or sing along:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SnyqJAeSp5I.        The lyrics are below.

If That Isn't Love

He left the splendor of heaven
Knowing His destiny
Was the lonely hill of Golgotha
There to lay down His life for me

If that isn't Love
The ocean is dry
There's no stars in the sky
And the sparrow can't fly
If that isn't Love
Then heaven's just a myth
There's no feeling like this
If that isn't love

Even in death He remembered
The thief hanging by His side
He spoke with love and compassion
Then He took him to paradise

If that isn't Love
The ocean is dry
There's no stars in the sky
And the sparrow can't fly
If that isn't Love
Then heaven's a myth
There's no feeling like this
If that isn't love


How grateful I am for God's love.  I believe His love is very different than the love we humans have.

After all, He gave His Son to be the sacrifice to end all sacrifices.

Can you imagine giving your child as a sacrifice?  Yes, God is very different.

His ways, are not like our ways. 

Just as we read in Isaiah 55:8-9, "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LordFor as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts."

Yes, we must be thankful. 

Thankful for Him sending His only begotten Son to earth to become the sacrifice to end all sacrifices. 

Thankful that our Lord, Jesus Christ, was obedient to God the Father's calling. 

Thankful that He came to earth to suffer, and die on that wooden cross at Calvary, become resurrected... all for me, and for everyone who is trusting in/believing upon Jesus, for their salvation.

Yes, I praise God for this!  For without His plan of redemption being fulfilled by Jesus Christ, we would have no way to spend eternity in Heaven with Him.

Wow!  This truly was love.  Love for us.  Hallelujah!


Until next time...
