Do You Love Jesus?

Do you love Jesus? That’s a weird question to ask, right? As a Christian or a person of faith, you obviously love Jesus. We live in a society today that’s obsessed with love. And that’s not a problem in itself, love is good. God is love, but it becomes a problem when you make a blanket statement such as ‘I love Jesus’ or ‘I love God’ but live your life as if He doesn’t exist. What does that mean exactly? How do you know you love Jesus? Join ArieRashelle as she searches for the answer to these questions and more.

How Do You Love Jesus?

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

James 4:7-8

According to James, in order to love Jesus, you have to spend time with Him. You have to seek Him because when you seek Him, you will find Him. This is what God tells the prophet Jeremiah to tell to the people of Israel:

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”

Jeremiah 29:11-13

Jesus tells us that in order to love Him we have to put Him above ourselves, our family, our desires. He has to be our everything. He has to be our number one. We have to follow in His footsteps, even if that means following Him to the cross.

24 Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. 25 For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. 26 For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?

Matthew 16:24-26

How can I know for sure that you love Jesus? When you start to change who you once were, and you start to become more and more like Jesus. When you see the fruit of the Spirit start to manifest in your life, that’s when you know that you love Jesus.
