Loving Jesus No Strings Attached

loving Jesus for himself, loving God unselfishly
At one point, I realized that I didn’t love Jesus for Himself, but for His benefits, and eternal life wasn’t enough for me. I wanted other things here and now. 

I came to this revelation because something happened that pierced my heart, damaged my dreams, and forever changed the landscape of my life. And I got angry with God. I thought He owed me more. 

I was like the crowd in John 6:26-27 who eagerly followed Jesus because they loved the food Christ gave them, not because they loved Him. When I realized my lack of love and understanding for Christ, I repented. But there's still some of this attitude left in me.

If you’ve had this same problem, will you join me today in asking God to give us more love for Him with no strings attached?

  1. Hi Gail - I know what you mean. I also had a moment like that and felt God had let me down. How foolish of me. It is I who does not understand Him enough to know He knows best. Great post. Trusting God to help us love Him more, no strings attached.
    God bless

  5. Truth you shared here. I repented of this some time ago, now I strive to love God just for who He is to me, My Father.
