Our heavenly Father loves us more than Jesus does.

Wednesday, 5/7/14

It is common enough for people to feel that Jesus, being one of us, exceeds the Father in feeling kindly toward us.

However, today’s reading tells us that the Father loves us more than Jesus does.

Jesus said, “Everything the Father gives me will come to me, and I will not reject anyone who comes to me, because I came down from heaven not to do my will but the will of the one who sent me.”  

Jesus was saying there that if he had his “druthers” he would reject some of us as unfit; but he has to take us on, because the Father won’t let him drop us.

My Dad wasn’t always hugging us kids. He wasn’t always telling us he loved us the way people in movies do.

But from the occasional times that he had his arms around me, I remember the great feeling of it; and I grew up happy with the world because my Dad made me secure in it.

Our heavenly Father makes us even more secure.

Hi Father, I was in bed saying my prayers and I had a thought about your Homily. Jesus loved us so much that he died on the cross for us, John 15:13 says, "Greater love hath no man than this, than he who lays his life down for his friends.
