When we ask God to show us how to love like Him

When we ask God to show us how to love like Him—He doesn’t answer our prayer by giving us an adorable puppy in a basket (or whoever that makes you go “aww”)—so easy to love the likeable, right?


Instead—through LIFE—He allows those unlikable-by-us people into our lives. Could be someone closely related or a mere stranger.

He allows hurts in our fallen lives; teach us by His example on the cross—
how to love like Jesus.

GRACE AND FORGIVENESS

To friends; to foes

To those who loved Him; to those who hated Him

To those who pierced the nails through His hands; to those who cried at the cross

To those who rejected Him; to those who believed.

God’s love is for everyone.

That’s how God answers our prayer of—God, show us how to love others like how You’ve loved them.

Hosanna by Hillsong (lyrics)

[Verse 1]
I see the King of glory
Coming on the clouds with fire
The whole earth shakes
The whole earth shakes, yeah

[Verse 2]
I see His love and mercy
Washing over all our sin
The people sing
The people sing

[Chorus]
Hosanna, hosanna
Hosanna in the highest
Hosanna, hosanna
Hosanna in the highest

[Verse 3]
I see a generation
Rising up to take their place
With selfless faith
With selfless faith

[Verse 4]
I see a near revival
Stirring as we pray and seek
We’re on our knees
We’re on our knees

[Chorus]
Hosanna, hosanna
Hosanna in the highest
Hosanna, hosanna
Hosanna in the highest

[Bridge]

Heal my heart and make it clean
Open up my eyes to the things unseen
Show me how to love like You have loved me
Break my heart for what breaks Yours

Everything I am for Your Kingdom’s cause
As I walk from earth into eternity

[Chorus]
Hosanna, hosanna
Hosanna in the highest
Hosanna, hosanna
Hosanna in the highest
Hosanna, hosanna
Hosanna in the highest
Hosanna, hosanna
Hosanna in the highest

[Outro]
Hosanna in the highest
In the highest,in the highest
Hosanna ,Hosanna in the highest
