Hi everyone 😀
This will be a very short ‘how to’ post. I usually don’t like the ‘How to’s’ of Christianity cause i think usually most of them tend to be very legalistic and can move out of a place of grace and enjoying the finished work of Christ at the cross.
At the end of this post you just might discover that this may not tell you ‘how to’ necessarily. It definitely will take you to a place of dependence and trust in Jesus though 🙂
Okay so how do we love God with all our mind, soul, heart and strength? How do we love our neighbours? How do you love your enemies? Jesus said, ‘if you love Me, you obey Me’. So its obvious that a key to living a life of holiness is loving Him truly. So how do you fall in love?
Hmm read the last sentence again. So ‘HOW DO YOU FALL IN LOVE?’. I know you’re probably thinking, ‘Well, it just happens’.
Easy and simple. Love just happens. Falling is not hard at all you know. You just FAAALLLLLL. ‘So its that easy?’, you might ask. Well, it surely doesn’t take any effort to fall off a cliff.
You want to love God? Learn how to FALLLLLL. What stops you from FALLLINGGG?
I don’t know but looks like we need to let go of our parachutes!!! The Bride of Christ needs to fall! She doesn’t need parachutes! Just Fall! Its not hard. You just need to be child-like. Yes indeed, ‘for such are the kingdom of heaven’, Jesus said.
Your head is your parachute. Let your heart fall back into the arms of Jesus. Don’t be afraid, you’re a son/daughter. For we haven’t been given a spirit of bondage to fear, but a spirit of adoption in which we cry ‘Abba Father’. Yes i pray that you fall back into that spirit of adoption! You have been adopted by Daddy God and He really loves you. Do you need to know that Abba loves you? Look at kids around you. Let the children teach you. Abba loves even far more than we as human beings love, so imagine how big His heart is. His heart is huge! He looks at you and calls you His beloved. When He opens your eyes to see the way He sees(which happens naturally when you fall back into His love), then its so much easier to live a holy life! Its so much easier to love your enemies. He takes your fragile heart and wrecks it with His 🙂
Now fall back into what you were created for! To live in the Love of Abba and His altogether lovely Son, Jesus!
I can’t promise you that loving Jesus isn’t going to cost you. It’ll cost you your life :). But what a privilege! To give our lives for the glorious King! He deserves much more- He saved us from death! It’ll cost you everything! But when you’re in love, you’re in love. You can’t say no to Him when He says, ‘Will you marry Me’. You’re just lost in Him so everything’s so light; Its easy to die for Him in the face of persecution, its easy to lay down your life for Him.
Sons of Daughters of Abba, Fall back into love. This is the essence of your being. For in Him we live, we move and we have our being.
Song of Solomon 1:2-4
2 Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth—
for your love is more delightful than wine.
3 Pleasing is the fragrance of your perfumes;
your name is like perfume poured out.
No wonder the young women love you!
4 Take me away with you—let us hurry!
Let the king bring me into his chambers.
