Our love is unreliable and often failing; His love is the Eternal Rock--it cannot fail.

It's easy to say I love Jesus but I think it comes down to this.... What do our fruits say about this? Does our life show how we really feel? When I think about what He has done for me I love Him even more. Thank you for bringing this up.

  • Lord Jesus, I love Thee, I know Thou art mine;
    For Thee all the pleasures of sin I resign;
    My gracious Redeemer, my Savior art Thou,
    If ever I loved Thee, Lord Jesus, ’tis now.
  • I love Thee, because Thou hast first loved me,
    And purchased my pardon on Calvary’s tree;
    I love Thee for wearing the thorns on Thy brow;
    If ever I loved Thee, Lord Jesus, ’tis now.
  • I’ll love Thee in life, I will love Thee in death,
    And praise Thee as long as Thou lendest me breath;
    And say when the death-dew lies cold on my brow,
    If ever I loved Thee, Lord Jesus, ’tis now.
  • In ages eternal of endless delight
    I’ll ever adore Thee in glory so bright;
    I’ll sing with the glittering crown on my brow,
    If ever I loved Thee, Lord Jesus, ’tis now.
Thank you Jesus for being such a wonderful Savior!

Jesus says that "Walk by Faith, Not by Sight." As Faith Without Works is Dead!

Amen,how can a person who is born again not have fruits of the Holy Spirit?

But we walk by faith and not by sight :)

Some verses that came to my mind concerning loving Jesus:

"If ye love me, keep my commandments." John 14:15

"Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you." John 15:14

"Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. / He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me." John 14:23-24

"For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous." 1 John 5:3 (1 John 5:2 also goes with this thought)

Thanks!

James

The post above mine is very similar to what I was thinking about loving Jesus. Some verses that came to mind:

"If ye love me, keep my commandments." John 14:15

"Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you." John 15:14

"Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. / He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me." John 14:23-24

"For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous." 1 John 5:3 (1 John 5:2 also goes with this thought)

Thanks!

James

Blessing and welcome James!
It is a heart not of earning but of gratitude for what has already been given... it is the heart
desiring of being purely of His Pleasure / to know His Pleasure in the doing brings purity... Love, Steven

I love when Paul breaks out in prayers of worship for Jesus in his letters. It happens several times and one of my favorites is in Ephesians 3.

For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height-- to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

To know Him is to love Him. To know Him more is to love Him more. How much do I love Jesus? Not nearly enough.

For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.

AMEN!!!!

Excellent topic. We often think about how much Jesus Loves us, and how much the Father loves us. We also realize that Jesus and God the Father can love far beyond what we understand love to be. However, we also have been commanded to "love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might." Deut 6:5 And in Ephes. 1:4 we are reminded that " Before the world was created, God had Christ choose us to live with Him and to be His holy and innocent and loving people" So how much do we really love Christ? How much do we really love the Lord our Father? I believe that the Holy Spirit is the only way we can do that and it's a very important issue to discuss and practice. Thanks for that thought. Luanne
