IF YOU LOVE JESUS…

:
If you love Jesus, your ultimate desire will be to stay in constant communion with Him, your prayer times will rather be full of words of love and thanksgiving to Him and the songs you sing will majorly be a communication of love for Jesus. Many times you’d be in a corner praying, singing and making melody to Jesus and you realize it gets down to your soul that you can’t withold the tears, words would not be enough to communicate what you feel at that moment and you’d see yourself only saying “Lord I love you!” I have always seen myself in such situations, I would lack words at those moments, I would only groan and cry out to Jesus shouting “Lord I love you!” Trying to get down my voice might be impossible and within me I know something is happening, I feel a very deep romance that nothing else on earth would give me, I feel peace no matter what it is I had been facing previously and I feel so secure, wrapped up in the arms of Jesus. Nothing gets me burning more than this.
:
Now, there is always one thing that triggers this deep communion, it is His word. Love seem to fade when there isn’t any communication, it is by His word that God communicates to us and He wants us to always know how much He loves us and how much He wants to direct us into doing the right things. It is in the word of God that we receive direction, it is in His word that we receive words! This is made possible by the Holy Spirit in us which is the Spirit of Christ.
:
When we are full of the word of God, we have more reason to be thankful, we take more cognisance of what God’s perfect love for us is and the knowledge of this word can influence the songs we sing and the things we say, it is in this that deep passion is stirred. While we have a perfect Spirit, we also have a soul that must always be stirred up and triggered to respond to the love of God. Jesus said in John 6:63 “…the words I have spoken to you are Spirit and they are life!” We have been given this word to live by. Believe me when I tell you that what you need is the word of God and nothing more; that is where you will get all the directions you need. Regardless of how long you pray “Lord, open my eyes!” It is in a deliberate attempt to study His word that your eyes is open to see where God has brought you into.
:
That man who is given to the word of God is a man who is constantly burning for God. If you love Jesus, you will want to keep hearing from Him and He has given you a way to hear from Him, He has released His word to us and He is in us by the Holy Spirit to bring clarity to those places that may seem blurry due to the limitations of the flesh. Just as we need a constant reminder from our loved ones to know they still love us, Jesus has given us something to show and always remind us that we are loved by Him. The Bible says in Romans 8:38-39 “For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor those things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
:
The location of God’s love is Christ Jesus and God has given us Himself in Christ Jesus with a promise sealed by His own Spirit (Ephesians 1:13) that nothing can ever separate us from His love. This is what the word of God says and these are the kind of things you see and you fall flat on your face singing with tears in your eyes “Lord who am I that you are so mindful of me? Who am I that you made me one with yourself!”
:
If you love Jesus, you will do less of selfish prayers and focus on Him knowing that He has truly met all you require. Jesus is everything God has to give and the Bible says all things consist in Him (Colossians 1:17). It is in a place of constant communion that He keeps filling your mind with these words of love He has released for you. The more you love Him, the more you will want to Hear Him. And the more you hear and learn of Him, the more you love Him. The Bible says we love Him because He first loved us (1 John 4:19). Truth is, the less you stay in constant communion with Him, the more you seem to forget, the more the whole thing keeps fading from your mind and the more you start becoming very casual. This is how the devil gradually comes in to start deceiving those who already believed. You can’t pay attention to the devil’s subtle tricks if you are in constant communion with God.
:
This is why it is wrong to fill up your device with songs and other stuffs that doesn’t remind you of God’s love, things that makes your love wax cold, things that makes you think about yourself alone. If you love Him, you must seek to be in constant communion with Him. Fix your focus on the word, pray the word, speak the word, have the consciousness of the word in you and you will always not just feel the peace that comes from Him alone but also experience it in a very deeper level.
:
Can you give yoursel an assignment to listen to nothing but edifying songs that talks about the love of Christ? Can you constantly give yourself to the study of the word? Can you always take your time to pray in the Spirit and meditate on the words of love God has released to you?
:
One thing you must be careful to avoid is people, materials and other things that keeps robbing you off your intimate moments with Jesus. There are relationships, businesses, songs, movies and many other things robbing you off that precious moments. There are people around you that may be discouraging you, they may look like Christians too but they keep telling you things that convinces you to be less serious with Jesus and be more serious with yourself. The Bible says that evil communication ruins good morals! God loves you and nothing matters more than this! Deny anyone access to this very intimate part of your life.
:
Don’t forget, the essence of the coming of Jesus is that God so loved you and wants to have an intimate relationship with you.
