This is Day Two of Lemt - Loving Jesus Ever More Truly. I know it's a lame acronym, so I apologize up front.
It struck me earlier this year that being in love with Jesus is not the way we learned about the first commandment. "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength..."
This wording has always made it seem like a task for me to do- something to work at. Now, I get it that love isn't all walks in the park. But in does include walks in the park. And you know what else being in love includes? Things like grinning at each other over lunch, and coming up with totally ridiculous names for each other. Being in love is giddy. It giggles at the slightest thought of the one you love. You write poems, and songs, and you're inspired to do things that are completely original and costly but who cares, You're in love! And this is the most important commandment. Wow!
God wants to be loved exactly like we want to be loved!
Sing a song to Jesus today. Go ahead and make one up. Its already in your heart, and no one knows Jesus like you do. Maybe there are songs that you think are the greatest ever, but I'm telling you that no one can say it the way you mean it in your heart right now. Its a song just between you and Him that no one else will ever hear.
Ps 40:3 "He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God"
PS - it doesn't even have to be a good song... it could be like this one...
