Do you love Jesus?

There is this 16-year-old girl with down syndrome that my sister takes care of twice a week when she gets out of school. I'll just call this girl Ellie. Ellie, doesn't talk much, she can be very sweet but also VERY stubborn!!! She FOR SURE has an attitude...LOL! But I really enjoy gettin hugs from her and TRYING to convince her that I am her friend. Well for the part she just says, yes, no and she can cuss you out in chinese...haha...soooo I was talking to her one day and asking her if she loved certain people...

Ellie do you love your mom? NO!
Ellie do you love your dad? NO!
Ellie do you love Theresa? NO!
Ellie do you love your teacher? NO!
Ellie do you love me? NO!
ELLIE, you don't love ME??? NOOOOOO!!! (K! Got it! LOL!)
Ellie do you love Santa? NO!
Ellie do you love Budda? NO!
Ellie do you love Jesus? (Silence)
Ellie do you love Jesus? (Silence)
Ellie do you love Jesus? (SILENCE)
Ellie do you love Jesus? ( Silence...pause...then a huge...
I mean it was soooo obnoxious and SOOO loud and said with SOOOO much attitude...BUT she knew she loves Jesus!!! I was like SOOOO amazed and happy by it! And it never FAILS..EVERY time I go through all these people with her and ask her if she loves them, SHE NEVER changes on loving Jesus!!! Sometimes she'll say yes we are friends, other days its NO! Somtimes she'll say yes, she loves me and other times its NO! But she NEVER changes on JESUS!!!

I asked my sister, do you think her family taught her that and she said she doubts it, their not religous at all. I said then HOW DOES SHE KNOW to love Jesus!?!?!?!? My sis said she just believes that God put it in her to love Him. Because she is like a child, she doesn't question or doubt it...loving Jesus just comes natural.

And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them. But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein. And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them.
(Mark 13-16)
