Oh how He loves you and me – Steve Martin, Love For His People ministry

May 24, 2022 Charlotte, North Carolina USA

Greetings to my family and friends of Love For His People.

Last Friday, May 20, 2022, I returned for my “4th Tour of Duty” to the uptown office of Charlotte Center City Partners. My former boss, Eleni Saunders, had called me two weeks earlier asking what I was doing. (I knew there was another question coming…)

“Can you come back and help us out, Steve. We could really use you.”

And so there I was, back in the saddle again, for the 4th time working in the black office chair I had occupied for 8 previous years, on staff or as a contractor. But it was a real joy for me to see the ones who were yet there, after the last two years had gone by. The Lord had given me a love for them that I wanted to once again share more of His love.
And on yet another plus side, I would be making the “big bucks” which would help pay for my future trips to the land I also love, Israel, to be with my Jewish friends, for the 25th time in the last 3 decades.

Speaking of love, in the late 1970s Evie Tornquist, a young American girl of Norwegian immigrants, amazed the Christian contemporary music world with her cheerful performances. Being less than 5 feet tall, her beautiful, rich voice caught my heart. (And she was good to look at too.) She made 30 albums, and my record album collection had at least one or two of them.

One song that specifically filled my spirit with more love than I had was entitled, “Oh How He Loves You and Me“. During those mid-20s years, when my life was like what many were still struggling with, trying to find out if God really does love you, this song gave me much hope and the desire to know more of Him.

His heart, my heart, for you today is for you to know more of Him, God the Father, His Son the Lord Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit – three in One. In these days of upheaval and people trying to find love in all the wrong places, know that He is revealing His love more and more to those who do seek Him and want to know more of Him.

He is Father. He is Yeshua. He is love. I hope you seek Him today to know even more.

Ahava and shalom,

P.S. One rendition of the song, “Oh How He Loves You and Me” is shared below.

Oh How He Loves You and Me 

“So what are we going to say about these things? If God is for us, who is against us? He didn’t spare his own Son but gave him up for us all. Won’t he also freely give us all things with him?” Romans 8:31-32 

“Oh, how He loves you and me, Oh, how He loves you and me.
He gave His life, what more could He give;
Oh, how He loves you, Oh, how He loves me,
Oh, how He loves you and me.
Jesus to Calv’ry did go, His love for mankind to show.
What He did there brought hope from despair.Oh, how He loves you, Oh, how He loves me,
Oh how He loves you and me.Oh, how He loves you and me,
Oh, how He loves you and me.
He gave His life, what more could He give;
Oh, how He loves you, Oh, how He loves me,
Oh, how He loves you and me.”

Simple love. For He is Love.

Ahava and shalom,

Steve Martin

Trust Me Still. Your Faith in God. by Steve Martin (Published 2021)

During the years 1960-1974 my family, with parents Louis and Lila Martin, and my siblings, Sue, Mary, Tom, Colleen, Janet, Lynn and Rob, lived at 1116 Main Street in Cedar Falls, Iowa. That home is pictured on the front cover of this book, and of this date still stands.
It was in that home that we grew in knowledge and truth to trust in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. With the input given to all of us through our parents, be it during the good and the bad times, a good foundation was laid for our spiritual, social, and natural lives.
I decided to feature that house on the cover because I want to acknowledge that the Lord decides where we live, and move, and exist.
“… and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation, 27 that they would seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us;” Acts 17: 26-27, NASB
Since those years have come and gone, my faith in Him has grown, been tested, and still stands strong, continuing to trust in Him day in and day out.
I hope these following chapters encourage you in your walk of faith. And at the end of your days, you will be known as one who has stood strong, still trusting in the Living God. He alone is the One Who can take you to the end, and who constantly watches over Israel and all believers in Him. He is the One too Who is coming back soon again.To purchase on Amazon: Trust Me Still.
