In Love with Jesus

Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.  Matthew 22:37 KJV

Last night, I shared an email with some friends. Afterwards, the Holy Spirit quickened me to look again at the words I had written. Sounded simple enough.

I think that was the first time I've ever said I was "in love" with Jesus. It took me by surprise. I knew the Holy Spirit wanted to say something more to me through what I had written.

When asked what the greatest command was, Jesus said to love Him with all one’s heart, soul, and mind.

Many people love Jesus as a friend, provider, healer, king, and Savior. But being "in love" with Jesus as our Bridegroom, to whom we have given our whole heart and soul, is a different story. I have found that’s a deeper and more intimate level. 

On this level, we can't get enough of Jesus, can’t spend enough time with Him, can’t talk enough with Him, and can’t learn enough about Him. We want to know more about Jesus, His character, His ways, and His thinking—just as we do with anybody we’re in love with.

Fall more and more in love with Jesus—your Bridegroom—every day. Delight in Him and in His presence.
