5 Things I Love about Jesus

I've been reading this meme going around for a couple weeks and it's one of my favorites. Listing 5 things that you love (dig) about Jesus has been such a blessing to read as everyone has just a tad bit different take on what touches their hearts about Jesus. And now Gibee has tagged me.

Here's the rules.

  • Those tagged will share 5 things they love (dig) about Jesus
  • Those tagged will tag 5 other bloggers
  • Link to those you tag

And like Gibee, I had trouble to sticking to just 5 things I love about Jesus, but here's the 5 I chose.

1. Jesus sought me out and saved me when I was lost. *Luke 19-10, *Luke 15: 1-7

2. His mercies are new every morning *Lamentations 3: 22-26, *I John 1:9

3. He sets me free from cares *Luke 12: 22- 31, *I Peter: 5:7, * Philippians 4: 4-7

4. He loves children *Luke 18: 15-17

5. He knows how I feel. He wept when His friend died * John 11: 33-36

He experienced heartache *Mark 14: 34; *Luke 13: 34-35

He knew what it was like to feel alone *Luke 22: 39-46, *Mark 14: 66-72, *Luke 22: 54-60

Sheesh, it was hard to just stick to 5. There are just so many things about Jesus to love. That's why this meme is so neat to me. Between all of us doing it, it covers so many wonderful aspects of who Jesus is.

I don't who's done this and who hasn't so I'll tag Tammy, Katrina, Kathy, Kim, and Ann. If you've already done it, give me a link so I can go read it or reread it as the case may be.

It was awfully hard to keep it down to five, wasn't it Susanne? I love #4 on your list.

I just found your blog through Lifesong-Kim. If it is okay, I am going to list it on my sidebar.

Thanks for sharing this today!

Great answers! True that there are WAY more than 5!

Beck said...

Lovely list! I was tagged earlier this week and I've been struggling to narrow down my list...

Tammy said...

This was beautiful, Susanne.
And thank you for the tag- what a nice surprise!
I was tagged for this before but I still haven't done it...mainly because it is hard to name just five!
But I hope to do this one soon!

Love this meme Susanne, it made me think of my own reasons why I love Him so much.


Linda said...

I loved doing and reading all the answers to this meme. Your answers are beautiful Susanne. I especially love that He knows how we fee. That makes such a difference when we are going through difficult times.
Thanks for sharing your heart.
