My True Love by Pam Parker Like 5/5 (1)

Love is thought of as an emotion, but actually it is a verb. True love motivates and causes one to take action. For God so loved . . . that He gave (John 3:16).

I recently read this quote by Pedro Arrupe: “What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evening, how you spend your weekends, what you read, whom you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything.”

Honestly, I am in love with and married to an amazing man. I personally believe he is the best man God ever created. He is the best husband any woman ever had, the most caring father any children ever were blessed to call Dad, and the GRANDest Grandpa ever. There is nothing my husband would not do for me or our family if it was within his power to provide it for us. What is his became mine, he shares freely with me. On the day we got married, we promised to love each other until death parts us. He became my one and only guy.

Yet, as wonderful as my husband is, falling in love with him is not the best thing I ever did. I hope that doesn’t sound derogatory to you. While I still enjoy spending my days with him, and I enjoy the gentle touch of his hand holding mine, especially when I need him to walk with me in a troubling time, falling in love with Jesus is truly the best thing I ever did. My husband is my only guy, but the day I fell in love with Jesus, He became my One desire. He is the One that motivates my days. He is the One that guides my life’s journey. He is the One that never ceases to amaze me. Jesus is the One Who fills my heart with joy and my life with gratitude.

No earthly love can compare to the spiritual union I have with our Savior. It is amazing to me that when Jesus became my first love, every other relationship in my life became richer and fuller. Every other part of my life took on new meaning through His presence in my life. His abundance became mine the day I fell in love with Him. I had read in the Bible that Jesus came to give me an abundant life, but until I fell in love with Him, I did not experience that to its fullness. I now know His peace that goes beyond any human understanding or comprehension. I now have an abiding joy. There is the calm assurance that my True Love is always with me, ready to hold my hand and walk me through the valley. And that happened the day I fell in love and committed to Him.

Is Jesus your first love? You can tell by what directs your desires and captures your imagination. Fall in love with Him; believe me when I tell you that it’s the best thing you will ever do.

Falling in Love with Jesus by Debby Sanford Like 4/5 (1)

“Falling in love with Jesus,
Falling in love with Jesus,
Falling in love with Jesus,
Is the best thing I’ve ever, ever done.”
(lyrics by Jonathon Butler)

Falling in love with Jesus is the answer to many struggles we often face in our lives. When we truly fall in love with Him, He becomes the focus of everything we do.

When I fell in love with my husband, he became the person I most want to spend time with. He is the first one I want to share important news with. His is the opinion I most value, and he is the one I run to when I need advice or comfort from the stresses of my day.

When we fall in love with Jesus, we seek to commune and spend time with Him. Prayer is not a burden, but a privilege and an honor as we come into the presence of the One our soul loves and longs for. “As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?” (Psalm 42:1-2). When we truly love Him, prayer is no longer something we must work in to our day – just one more commitment on our to-do list that we hurriedly work through. It becomes the highlight of our day – even an attitude and a mindset that we carry with us all day long.

When we fall in love with Jesus, His opinions matter most to us. We seek to please Him in our lifestyle choices. It is not a burden to allow our lives to reflect the precepts in His word. “When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek” (Psalm 27:8). When we love Him, our obedience to His Word will truly come from our hearts.

When we fall in love with Jesus, we have a direct connection to a strength and a power like none other. “I will love thee, O LORD, my strength. The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.” (Psalm 18:1-3).

We want to share this love and this power with others – especially our children. As we pray for them, let us make sure we are modeling how falling in love with Jesus affects our daily lives. Let them see the excitement, the peace, the strength, and the joy that comes from truly loving Him. Let them know that without a doubt, “Falling in love with Jesus is the best thing I’ve ever done.”

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God. 3 5/5 (1)

No Godly thing dwells in our flesh. Our flesh need a denial trial. We do not owe our flesh any respect. God resist selfish pride and the sins of the flesh. We cannot be led by the Spirit and walk in the flesh.

Offenses will come. But there can be no offenses in Church if we refuse to listen to the flesh. If we are not willing to change while in Church and serving God, we will change our environment by leaving Church in some cases.

The Spirit of God (the Comforter) is what will comfort us when we will kill the flesh. We are not to go through the motions of doing Spiritual things when we are not in the Spirit. And the Holy Ghost working inside of us will never agree with our flesh.

We cannot get out of the purpose of God and have everything working for our good or perfect purpose. It’s not so much about what we are going through but about who we are with while going through that. So we are to be careful about making Spiritual decisions while in the flesh. Because God will not be in that. (ARC Sunday Service August 6, 2017 with Pastor John Edwards)

And the Bible says…
“Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered” Romans 8:26 KJV.


“And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God” Romans 8:27 KJV.


“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose”
Romans 8:28 KJV.
