“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.”

Hebrews 9: 27 King James Version

I recently saw a family program and it showed them having a memorial service for someone who had died. The son of the man who died said “I never told my dad that I loved him and now it’s too late”. This man’s heart was breaking and he wept. Never assume that people know you love them. Tell them that you love them before it is too late!

I think it’s difficult for a lot of people to say “I love you” because they fear rejection. The tragic part of it is that in some people’s minds when someone says “I love you”, they automatically assume the person is talking about sex. I believe with all my heart when you love someone then you will do your very best to make him or her happy.

A friend of mine told me that she told someone she loved him and he replied “Two way street”. She told me that it broke her heart because he didn’t say “I love you” to her. Have we erected such a huge barrier in our hearts to keep from getting hurt that we are reluctant to accept love and kindness when it is offered to us? I urge you to tell your loved ones and friends that you love them before it is too late. We long to have people tell us they love us but they also long to have us tell them that we love them.

Have you told Jesus you love Him today? Have you thanked Him for caring for you when it seems nobody else does? The greater our love for Jesus; the greater our service to Him will be. Have you given Him all your heart or are you holding something back?
