What “Jesus Loves You” Means To The Founder Of Share Jesus Ministries, Thomas Bonus

Thomas Bonus wrote the following definition of “Jesus Loves You” in September of 2020 to answer frequent questions.

“Jesus Loves You” cannot be expressed in words or in perfection by anyone other than God-Jesus Himself. Jesus Loves You was expressed by Jesus freely laying down His life for each of us, thus paying the price to set us free from our inequities and shortcomings (John 3:16 & 10:11). No one but Jesus can express perfect love because perfect Love is patient and kind and keeps no record of wrongs. Jesus is calling out in each of us in His Perfect Love. He is keeping no record of our shortcomings, and though we may ignore His callings and reject His love hundreds or thousands of times, he keeps no record but simply continues to call out to us, offering His love which covers and abates ALL of our sins. No actions on our part no matter how many or how evil can negate His continuing calls for us to come to Him and by His Perfect Love, find complete forgiveness, healing and peace (1 Corinthians 13:4). Therefore, although Christians may try to love you, we will often fail, it is only Jesus who will show you His Perfect Love.

Let us take that perfect message of “Jesus Loves You” to the streets, to work, to the store, to the gym… to everywhere we go (Deuteronomy 6:7). Jesus promised to draw everyone to His perfect Love if we simply take His message of Love to everyone (John 12:32).
