Love for Christ

Sometimes I’ll hear a song or read a devotional or a scripture that will bring a wave of pure devotion to my heart.

I’ll get hit such an intense feeling of love for my Savior I won’t even know what to do with it. It’s pure joy and leads to spontaneous, sincere worship.

It has occured to me that this is a reflection of His love for me. A pale, dull reflection, sure, but a reflection nonetheless. The thought that His devotion, His love and affection, is about a thousand times brighter & more intense than mine for Him is humbling to say the least.

I rejoice in knowing this, in knowing Him.

“And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us!”

Romans 5:5
