MORE AND MORE LOVE
(To Know Jesus’ Love For You Makes You Love Him More)
TO THE BIBLE Matthew 22:37
“Jesus said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’’”
When we tell people how much the Lord Jesus loves them, and how God isn’t holding any sin against them, there’re those who don’t like it. They say we’re giving people a licence to do wrong; but how could that be? The love of Jesus Christ never gives anyone liberty or the desire to sin. The truth is that the more you learn about the Lord, the more you want to love Him; to know Him is to love Him. And the more you love Him, the less you want to do anything that’s offensive to Him.
So, it’s not true that the love of Christ makes people want to do wrong, and think they can get away with it. No! The result of God’s love is more love. And because you love Him, you keep His Word; you do what He wants. That’s what Jesus said: “If you love Me, keep My commandments” (John 14:15). The proof of your love is keeping His Word, and His Word instructs you to abstain from sin. Romans 6:1-2 says, “…Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it?”
We take advantage of His grace and love, but not against Him. Always remember, no one gets to know Jesus without loving Him. If you truly know Him, you’ll love Him. The Bible says we love Him because He first loved us. And we know He loves us from the message that came to us, and we received that message and came into fellowship with Him.
Once you’re in fellowship with Him, all you want to do is love Him, and please Him; He takes first place in your life. That’s the necessary result of love. Nothing pleases the Father more than your genuine love for Jesus Christ.
John 3:16; Ezekiel 11:19-20; Romans 2:4 CEV
Dear Father, thank you for the Holy Spirit who guides me in the way of righteousness and true holiness. The more I know you, the more I love you, and seek the establishment of your righteousness in all the earth. I pray for sinners around the world, that their hearts be open to receive your love for them, and be translated from darkness into the glorious liberty of the sons of God, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
