What do you really want from Jesus? I was just sitting here thinking when that question came to me. So I started thinking maybe I need to ask myself that question and then answer it.
Do I want a relationship with Jesus?
Do I want to be married to Him?
What do I want from Him?
Do I want all of the bennefits, without making a commitment?
What does a commitment to Jesus mean?
Well it means the same thing as any marriage relationship, means. When I married my husband I made a commitment for life. I made a vow to love him, to remain true to him. For better or for worse, in sickness and in health, forsaking all others, till death. I don't stay with him because of what he gives me. I don't stay with him for any other reason than that I LOVE HIM!
That is why we should be with Jesus............because WE LOVE HIM! Not for what He gives us. Not for what He does for us but simply because WE LOVE HIM! In sickness and in health, we should still love Him. If we have plenty or if we are in lack, we should love Him.
Do we commit adultery in our relationship with Jesus? Do we cheat on Him by serving other gods? Do we cheat on Him because of our idols?
Do we stay around Jesus because it is cool?
WHAT DO WE REALLY WANT FROM JESUS???????
WHY DO WE SERVE GOD????????
Well I don't know about you but I have had a revelation. I hope you will think about your relationship with Jesus and get real, live up to the commitment that you made with Him.
