Many people love Jesus for what He can do for them. The Redeemed learn to love Jesus for Who He is.
“The redeemed have all their objective good in God. God Himself is the great good which they are brought to the possession and enjoyment of by redemption. He is the highest good, and the sum of all that good which Christ purchased. God is the inheritance of the saints; He is the portion of their souls.
God is their wealth and treasure, their food, their life, their dwelling place, their ornament and diadem, and their everlasting honor and glory. they have none in heaven but God; He is the great good which the redeemed are received to at death, and which they are to rise to at the end of the world.”
Are you in love with the idea of a better life … or are you in love with Jesus?
