May I give you a word I believe is from the mind of Christ through the Holy Spirit? It has to do with what I believe is one of the greatest needs in the church today. Indeed, it is a word every believer ought to hear.
We cannot serve Jesus properly unless we know the depths of his love for us. As John writes, “We love because he first loved us” (1 John 4:19, ESV). We absolutely must receive the Lord’s love into our hearts — and it’s vital that we love him back.
Has your heart towards God grown cold or distant? By seeking to know him and his attributes—to know him more intimately—your love for him can be stirred and grow. God wants a relationship with you and to change your whole life. Will you press in and know him?
Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you.
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
