Without Saying A Word~

(Re-posting from February 2, 2010)
As soon as I walked through my front door last Tuesday night, I was reminded of just how much my husband loves me. No...he didn't give me a kiss. And no...he didn't hop up and give me a hug. He didn't even say "hello". Normally, my honey would welcome me home by doing all three! That night, however, I happened to arrive home before he did. His love was there, though....waiting to surprise me!






As I walked through the door, this is what I saw! What an unexpected surprise!!! It wasn't our anniversary. It wasn't my birthday. Valentine's Day is still yet to come. This beautiful, gigantic heart-shaped balloon was simply my husband's exuberant way of saying, "I love you!" His actions spoke passionately and my heart heard every word.


As grand as this demonstration of love was, it can never compare to the passionate love of my Jesus. Without saying a word, He was led to Calvary. Without saying a word, He was nailed to the cross. Without saying a word, He suffered and bled.



He wasn't guilty. He had done no wrong. He didn't deserve to die. Relinquishing His life on an old, rugged cross was simply our Saviour's exuberant way of saying, "I love you!" Without saying a word, He proclaimed His perfect love for all to see. On the cross, Jesus spoke passionately and my heart heard every word.



Have you heard the passionate cry of Jesus?



Has your heart heard His exuberant love for you?



Still your heart....and listen.



Without saying a word, Jesus will speak His love into your heart.
