Jesus loves me this i know...for the bible tells me so...


While watching a little TV on Sunday instead of going to church,
I watched a Church in Atlanta honoring one of its senior pastors who had
been retired many years. He was 92 at that time and I wondered why the
Church even bothered to ask the old gentleman to preach at that age.

After a warm welcome, introduction of this speaker, and as the
applause quieted down he rose from his high back chair and walked slowly,
with great effort and a sliding gate to the podium. Without a note or
written paper of any kind, he placed both hands on the pulpit to steady
himself and then quietly and slowly he began to speak....

"When I was asked to come here today and talk to you, your
pastor asked me to tell you what was the greatest lesson I ever learned in
my 50 odd years of preaching.  I thought about it for a few days and boiled
it  down  to just one thing that made the most difference in my life and
sustained me through all my trials. The one thing that I could always rely
on when tears and heart break and pain and fear and sorrow paralyzed me...
the only thing that would comfort me was this verse.........

"Jesus loves me this I know.
For the Bible tells me so.
Little ones to Him belong,
we are weak but He is strong.....
Yes, Jesus loves me...
The Bible tells me so."

When he finished, the church was quiet. You actually could hear
his foot steps as he shuffled back to his chair. I don't believe I
will ever forget it.

A pastor once stated, "I always noticed that it was the adults
who chose the children's hymn 'Jesus Loves Me' (for the children of
course) during a hymn sing, and it was the adults who sang the loudest because
I could see they knew it the best."
