Do you LOVE me?

Posted on Posted in Life, Trust

We all want to be able to say,
I love God, I love Jesus!
And there is no reason why we can’t say that,
… and really mean it.
So, why does it seem so difficult or unreal sometimes?

Is there justification for us to say, ‘I love Jesus’
… and mean it,
… irrespective of whether the Bible commands this?

Yes there is,
by simply receiving what Jesus has done for you.

      Love has been perfected among us in this:
      that we may have boldness in the day of judgment;
      because as He is, so are we in this world.
      There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear,
      because fear involves torment.
      But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.
      We love Him because He first loved us.
      1 John 4:17-19

The key to our relationship with Jesus is, that
we love Him because He first loved us!

      That tells us, that unless we actually receive His love,
      .. we will not be able to truly love Him.

In John 21:15-17, Jesus taught Peter this truth,
that we have nothing to give until we receive from Him,
His LOVE and all that He has to give to us.

      Then, with His love in us,
      … we have what it takes to truly love Him,
      … and to express His love to others!
