Love Song From A Savior

Many a man proclaims his own steadfast love, but a faithful man who can find? -Proverbs 20:6, ESV

The band Third Day has a song, called Love Song, in which they discuss a man who would climb the highest mountain and swim the deepest ocean, all to declare his love for a woman, but how many times has that promise been broken? (This question is also in the song.)

But it turns out this song is from the perspective of Jesus. Other lyrics include:

I’ve never climbed the highest mountain
But I walked the hill of Calvary
I’ve never swam the deepest ocean
But I walked upon the raging sea
Just to be with you, I’d do anything
There’s not price I would not pay
Just to be with you, I’d give anything
I would give my life away

I know that you don’t understand the fullness of My love
How I died upon the cross for your sins
And I know you don’t realize how much that I gave you
But I promise, I would do it all again
Just to be with you, I did everything
There’s not price I did not pay
Just to be with you, I gave everything
Yes, I gave my life away

Jesus is the only truly faithful one. Find His love, and His forgiveness and mercy and grace.

The Only Faithful One

By steadfast love and faithfulness iniquity is atoned for, and by the fear of the Lord one turns away from evil. -Proverbs 16:6, ESV

This is a late in the day entry. Perhaps, though, my commitment helps show steadfast love and faithfulness?

Really though, there is only one who has ever been truly faithful and full of steadfast love: Jesus.

It is by His faithfulness that we have any claim to righteousness, for He was faithful to follow His Father’s will by dying on a cross. And He did out of His steadfast love for us, to save us from the fear of God’s wrath.

He is the only Faithful One, but He shares His rewards with us.
