Max Lucado – Lovebursts

 

Listen to Today’s Devotion

Lovebursts.  We all have them.  Spontaneous affection.  Tender moments of radiant love.  They remind you about what matters.

Jesus had lovebursts…lots of them.  One of them happened when four men lowered their paralytic friend through a roof to reach Jesus.  And faith got God’s attention.  Mark 2:5 says, “When Jesus say the faith of these people, he said to the paralyzed man, ‘Young man, your sins are forgiven.’”

To heal the man’s body took a simple command.  To forgive the man’s sins took Jesus’ blood.  Jesus already knew the price of forgiveness.  But he offered it anyway.  Love burst his heart.  By the way, he hasn’t changed.  What happened then happens today. All of heaven must pause as another burst of love declares the only words that really do matter:  “Your sins are forgiven.”
