“We love him because he first loved us.”-1 John 4:19
God loves us and we need to know it. We love Him and we need to show it. Yet every Christian knows and feels that they could and should love Him more. But, how?
Charles Spurgeon left us these words of wise advice:”–we must not try to make ourselves love our Lord, but look to Christ’s love first, for his love to us will begat in us love to him. I know that some of you are greatly distressed because you cannot love Christ as much as you would like to do, and you keep fretting because it is so. Now, just forget your own love to him, and think of his great love to you; and then, immediately, your love will come to something more like that which you would desire it to be.”
He was right. Stop trying to make yourself love Christ more and start meditating on the greatness of His love for you. As you do that you will discover an increase in your love for Him. We must always remember that He is the source, not we ourselves.
To Renew your love for Christ Review His love for you!”
