More Love to Thee

  • 8 January 2020

More love to Thee, O Christ
More love to Thee
Hear Thou the prayer I make
On bended knee
This is my earnest plea
More love, O Christ, to Thee
More love to Thee
More love to Thee

Last night as I was praying and pondering yesterday’s blog post, I began to ask God to increase my love for Him. It’s easy to say I love God, but do I show Him how much I love Him? Am I spending quality time with Him because I love to do so, or am I going through motions so I can check one more thing off of my to-do list?

Selfishness, unforgiveness, bitterness, anger–these are all signs that love is waning. Not only toward others but also toward the Father. He told us to love others as He has loved us, and the love He displayed showed the opposite of these things. You may feel like you have a right to hold on to your feelings, but Jesus gave up His rights for you. Why can’t you give up your “rights” for Him?

Don Francisco sang, “Love is not a feeling; it’s an act of your will.” Love is not always easy, but it is a command. And yet we cannot love our Brothers and Sisters if we do not first of all love the Creator of love. I am so thankful for the depth of God’s love for me, and I pray for help to love Him more, to love His people more, to be willing to lay down my life for Him, and to never stop praising Him for His love and mercy. He is so worthy!
