LOVE TASTES GREAT!

We often hear the scripture in Psalms 34:8 at church.

And it is guaranteed to get applause, even the occasional shout.

It reads:

“O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.”

We often think of this as an opportunity to think on how Jesus has brought us through trials – how he has ransomed us out of the vice grip of sin.

But I want to stir up your spirit to think about how his taste should thrust us into a life of full-fledged evangelism.

Ever been afraid or apprehensive to preach the gospel?

Ever shuttered or paused to speak the name of Jesus in certain circles?

Well, I want to encourage you to pour out your heart to whoever you feel led. You know why it’s okay? Because His love tastes better than any acceptance or positive response by your friends or relatives.

Let me show you how I know this.

Romans 8:38-39 NLT

“And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love.  No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Here’s Paul’s point.

If we focus on how much Jesus loves more than what people think of us, we will never fear anything!

Speak about how good Jesus is!

Don’t keep it to yourself!

And if you haven’t experienced his goodness, leave a comment and we can talk.

In short, Jesus gave up his glory in heaven as the Son of God to come to earth.

And he came for this reason.

He had to serve as the only sinless and perfect sacrifice to take the punishment of our sins on himself. (Philippians 2:6-8; 2 Corinthians 5:21)

And he rose from the dead so we can not only be saved, but live in abundant LIFE! (Romans 8:11; John 10:10)

So now we can be friends with God. We can know Him. (John 15:13-15)

I know Him! How cool is that? After all I’ve done?

O taste and see Jesus is good and don’t be afraid to accept him or proclaim him!

His love tastes so good, nothing can surpass it. So eat Jesus’ love more than you eat the acceptance of man.

Bless you in Jesus’ name.
