'"JESUS"..."loves you!"'

Revelation 1:5b NLT
All glory to Him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by shedding His blood for us.
 
John 3:16
“For this is how God loved the world: He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.
 
I just started working as a teacher's aide in a public junior high. At this school, as I walk from class to class, I pass by hundreds of students who don't know Jesus—and this has been increasingly bothering me.
 
How do I tell these kids about Jesus? I've been praying about it. Specifically, I've been asking the Lord to give me opportunities...in a way that will allow me to REMAIN working at the school, and REMAIN working with and influencing the kids...
 
Yesterday, during 2nd period, I was helping two 8th grade students with math. When one of the students said “Jesus!” (not as a prayer!), without thinking I responded “loves you!” and went on explaining the math lesson. Both teens had wide eyes for a moment, looked at me, then smiled... 
 
Lord Jesus, my prayer today is that we Believers will be increasingly burdened to tell others You LOVE them! Moreover, please give us opportunities to share! May we respond to those opportunities without thinking, trusting and letting Your Spirit give us words to say. We ask this in Your name, Jesus, for Your glory...
 
AMEN!!!
