Loving Jesus

If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha  (1Corinthians 16:22).

The Lord Jesus said, “If ye love me, keep my commandments” (John 14:15),
meaning that the proof of your love for Him is keeping His Word. Furthermore,
our opening verse says anyone who doesn’t love the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be“anathema” (accursed). Loving Jesus isn’t debatable or negotiable; it’s not subject to the power  of choice. It’s something you’re required to do.Jesus is the crown of heaven, and the joy of the whole earth. Everything in the universe  revolves around Him. He’s the embodiment and fullest revelation of God’s love! The Father  has expressed Himself and His love in Jesus. There’s no better way for the Father to prove  His love and manifest Himself to man outside of Jesus! Jesus is the joy of the
Father’s heart. All that God does is wrapped around Him. This is the reason you must love Jesus  with all your heart. Someone might want to ask, “But how can I love Him, when I can’t  see Him physically?”He already said it: “If you love me, keep my Word!” So, it’s through the Word. He rules  our hearts and lives through His Word. Loving Him is loving the Word, living according to  His Word. Someone once said, “I believe in God, and I love God, but I don’t believe in Jesus.” That’s a contradiction,because the Bible says, “Whosoever denieth the Son, the same  hath not the Father: but he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also”(1 John 2:23). If you love the Father, you must love the Son also.Your proof of love for God is demonstrated in your love for Jesus. And there’s no better  way to prove your love for the Master than to do His Word. Your love for Him should be  expressed in your worship and in your actions as well. Your love for Him should be the greatest  attraction, and the distinguishing attribute in your life.

PRAYER

Precious Lord Jesus, I love you; thank you for all you’ve done for me. I appreciate and  celebrate your glory in my life; thank you for giving me eternal life, and for loving  me with such endearing and everlasting love. You’re my everything; you alone are  worthy of all praise, glory, honour and adoration, forever and ever. Amen.
