I heard the song for the first time playing in the background while at a restaurant tonight.
Not recognizing it, I listened more intently to the lyrics.
Being a love song, the main idea was that the singer wanted more than anything to just be “somebody” to the other person.
As I listened, I began thinking that I was already “somebody” to Jesus.
In fact, you are, too.
We do not have to hope and hope or worry and wonder if we are important to Him.
We don’t have to work at impressing Him in order to be noticed.
We don’t have to sink into sadness if we learn that He really doesn’t care, after all.
That won’t ever happen, because He will never stop caring about us or offering us His love.
His love will remain constant.
It is up to us to respond to that love.
He suffered and died for us on the cross because we were “somebody” important to Him.
Somebody worth dying for.
Somebody worth offering eternal life to.
Never forget—you are somebody to Jesus.
Who is Jesus to you?
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
