Love is Here!

Come to the water
You who thirst
And you'll thirst no more
Come to the father
You who work
And you'll work no more
And all you who labor in vain
And to the broken and shamed

Chorus
Love is here
Love is now
Love is pouring from His hands
From His brow
Love is near
It satisfies
Streams of mercy flowing from His side

'Cause love is here

Come to the treasure
You who search
And you'll search no more
Come to the lover
You who want
And you'll want no more, no
And all you who labor in vain
And to the broken and shamed
Yeah

Chorus


And to the bruised and fallen Captives bound and broken hearted
He is the Lord
He is the Lord, yeah
By his stripes
He's paid our ransom
From His wounds we drink salvation
He is the Lord
He is the Lord

Chorus
Love is here
Love is now
Love is pouring from His hands
From His brow

Love is near
It satisfies
Streams of mercy flowing from His side
Streams of mercy flowing from His side

'Cause love is here
Love is here


Wow. Isn't it amazing that we serve a God so big that his love his here for us all the time?

We sang this song at my youth group last night, and it really spoke to my heart.

One thing especially stuck out to me.

Love is near, it satisfies


Christ's love is enough for me.  It should satisfy all my wants and needs.  Yet, that is not always the case.
I sometimes look to things or friends or my emotions to satisfy me.  None of these things will bring true satisfaction.  Only when I surrender my life to Him, will I be satisfied.

Why don't we surrender? Why don't we submit to God if that is the best way?

We are human.  Surrender is hard.  It means giving up all we want, all our wants and needs, all of the things we think we need.

Despite the hardship and difficulty, surrender is the best way.  Would you rather have your best, or God's best?

I challenge you today, whatever the area it is, surrender yourself to God.
