Benediction: On “Christianity”

Karl Barth was a theologian who literally wrote millions of words and thousands of pages trying to formulate what Christianity was. There’s a story–that might be true–that he was once asked if he could sum it all up in one sentence. He said “Jesus loves me, This I know, For the Bible tells me so.”

And is there anything simpler or more vintage than the song “Jesus loves Me”?

But did you know there are 4 other original verses to that song?

Jesus loves me still today,
Walking with me on my way,
Wanting as a friend to give
Light and love to all who live.

Jesus loves me! He who died
Heaven’s gate to open wide;
He will wash away my sin,
Let His little child come in.

In your struggle for faith and attempts at love, remember
Jesus loves you, completely.
