Passionate fire of love! That is how intensely our God cares for us! He so cherishes us, that He sent His Son to redeem us. He now waits for our response.
Think of a love relationship today~ Is there a fire of love, a desire to be with the one we love? Is the fire raging? or barely kindled? Is it truly love, or is it a lust of the flesh? Does it go out when another attractive body appears? Or is it deeper, a spiritual bond as well as a physical one? Is the other's welfare more important than our own?
True love will last through happy times and difficult times. How do I know this? We will soon celebrate 50 years of marriage. Have the years always been easy? Not hardly. Did we go through them on pure human strength? Not hardly. Without the prayers of those who love us, we would not have traveled through the rocky mountainous ways with unity still intact. But God's supernatural power rekindled the fire and reunited our hearts. Since we established our relationship with Jesus, it grows sweeter every year.
The intense fire of God-love re-sparked the fire in our hearts, and He can do the same in yours! This is true of married love, and it is also true in our love for God. Once we claim Jesus as Lord of our life, repenting of our sin, we walk into the warmth of His powerful love. The intensity grows as we follow the leading of the Holy Spirit whom God sends to guide us.
His love is a strong magnet that draws even hardened hearts to Himself, and the fervency of His love can melt that heart into malleable gold, precious and pliable toward His love.
Come submit yourself to Him and discover how beautiful life can be!
