    How about the ol', "Because He first loved me . . . " answer?

      In a few words... He saved my sorry self. I was worthless and a worm of worms. Yet because of His great lovingkindness... in faith... (had to say it ) God made me a son!

        Many appear Righteous and Just because they say 'yes' to Jesus Christ , yet they don't do His Will.

            I too am forced to go with the 'He loved me first' answer because that really is true. I always believed in God, as I was raised with Christian parents and went to Church. But I just thought of it as a casual thing. Jesus wasn't first in my life and I thought I had other things to worry about. Then after school was over for some reason I started getting serious about my faith and joined some message boards and read a lot of Christian books, mostly on Bible Prophecy as that was really interesting. Now He is first in my life and I am very grateful for that, grateful that He sought after me before I sought Him.

                For selfish reasons. He has this beautiful kitchen in one of them mansions and IT'S MINE! oh yes IT'S MINE

                Obedience to God is more than a soldier obeying his commander. It is our grateful response to the Lover of our souls.

                  John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that HE gave HIS only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in HIM should not perish, but have eternal life.

                    Because He loves me like no one else can. Because He bore my sins on that cross. Because, apart from Him, I have no hope. Blessed be His righteous name forever and ever, amen.
                    Jeremy, a bondservant of the Lord.

                    Today is a good day to die for Christ.

                      I Love Him because He first loved me.
                      I Love Him because He lives in me.
                      I Love Him because He is love.
                      I Love Him because He is the most wonderful, fantastic, incredible, beautiful, amazing, loving, caring, peaceful, joyful, superabounding more than we can ever imagine or describe, the One and Only Lord of the Universe.
                      ...be strengthened with power through His Spirit into the inner man, that Christ may make His home in your hearts through faith, that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be full of strength to apprehend with all the saints what the breadth and length and height and depth are and to know the knowledge-surpassing love of Christ, that you may be filled unto all the fullness of God. Eph. 3:16-19

                        I love the Lord because He took a broken, hopeless, helpless shell of a person and made me whole. My life changed completely and forever when I came to know Him!

                        This is a great thread, but sadly, I know it won't get as much traffic as the heated, controversial threads. Truly, THIS should be a thread Christians flock to!

                            I love - adore the Lord Jesus Christ because He is working His plan to the finish! He is no respector of persons. I look at the awesomeness of His creative power and just wonder at the splendor of this Being! I see His book to us and think what an Author! I love Him because without Jesus I would have to spend eternity away from this wonderful God and I want to thank, hug, bow and praise Him forever! He died for me and His word is forever settled in Heaven. Just thinking about Him makes me get goosebumps, I can hardly wait to see what happens when I meet Him in person! He guides me in this life and I want Him to do the same in the next one!

                            Oh magnify the name of Jesus Christ!
                            Someday the wicked will hide in the rocks for fear of Him and His glory!

                              Because He doesn't give me what I deserve. I am in awe of His Love and faithfulness. He never gave up on me when I stormed away from Him, and He was infinitely patient with me all through those dark years.
