What does it mean to really Love Jesus. Is there a way to know you REALLY Love Him? What is Love… to Jesus?
This question came up after seeing our current culture and everyone claiming to know Jesus. I thought, do all these people know what Jesus actually says about loving Him and following His teachings?
Jesus makes it very clear.
From that time Jesus began to preach and say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”Matthew 4:17 NASB2020
By this all people will know that you are My disciples: if you have love for one another.John 13:35 NASB2020
But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may prove yourselves to be sons of your Father who is in heaven;…Matthew 5:44-45 NASB2020
The one who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me;…John 14:21 NASB 2020
This is My command, that you love one another, just as I have loved you.John 15:12 NASB2020
As I confirmed and typed all these quotes, I wondered if this was overkill. However, as I typed, I thought it’s worth it. Jesus is very clear in what makes a disciple of His and what He requires of His disciples.
I don’t have a huge point to this piece accept to share what the Word says. From my own testimony, I know that you can claim Jesus and NOT really know what He’s said. I hope this article will help someone know what Jesus says about claiming Him and what that ACTUALLY looks like.
Let’s all be disciples of Jesus and know what love is.
This is the end of the first week of my Lenten posts and I’ve really enjoyed writing them. I hope you all have enjoyed them as well. Lord willing, I’ll see y’all tomorrow.
