V day...love is in the air...

yes....February 14th and the world is celebrating all kinds of love. But we know for sure what a greatest love to celebrate on such an occasion.

"Greater love has no one than this, that someone lays down his life for his friends." John 15:13 (ESV)

The love of Christ that he laid down his own life for his friend. Then, who is Jesus' Friend? you mean me?? I am his friend? yeah, absolutely. Those who believe and walk in his way, is His friend. I know sometime even for myself, it is so hard to understand the fact that I am Jesus' friend. Who am I to be an Almighty God's friend. I'm such a sinful man....(I really think so) but yet He called me friend. That's the ultimate reason why John Newton named his song..."Amazing Grace" It's absolutely AMAZING GRACE!! of God that He called us His friend. Even more, He laid down his own life for His friend. What a great love.

This song by Michael Gungor speak it all...how I truly feel...

Friend of God

Who am I that you are mindful of me
That you hear me when I call
Is it true that You are thinking of me
How You love me
It's amazing

I am a friend of God
I am a friend of God
I am a friend of God
He calls me friend

God almighty, Lord of Glory, You have called me friend

I think as a Christian. Understanding the love of Christ that is so amazing helps me so much to love others. When I face certain challenges with certain people that are very challenging to love and accept them as who they are. I will be always reminded that...I was also just like that when Christ reached out His hand to embrace me in His arms. The arms of Love. No matter who I am. You see, love is the choice....Jesus made it clear....that He chose to love us no matter what. He chose the nails and the cross so that we could live...live for Him.

It's amazing grace that you came...
It's the power of the Father's love
That He sent His son to died for me....

This is my desire...
To knowing more of you.
To see you face to face
Like I ever been before.....

(part of my song "My Desire")
