 Love of Jesus by Theodore Cuyler


[b]Love of Jesus[/b]

(Theodore Cuyler, "Wayside Springs
from the Fountain of Life" 1883)

"The love of Christ constrains us."
2 Corinthians 5:14

Love of Jesus is essential to Christianity.
No privations can starve it, and no burdens
can break it down. It is the core of all true
piety. It is the only cure of the reigning
worldliness and covetousness and fashion
worship, which have made such havoc in
too many churches.

There is only one way to be a steadfast
Christian--it is to get the heart so full of love
to Jesus--that the world, and the lusts of
the flesh, and the devil can get no foothold.

A true Christian life is the continual
consecration of our bodily powers, of our
energies, our affections, our resources,
and our influence--to Him who bought
us with His precious blood.

"Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of
God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living
sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God--this is
your spiritual act of worship." Romans 12:1

 Re: Love of Jesus by Theodore Cuyler

Zac Poonen speaks of knowing the love of God, as being the foundation upon which we build our lives. Without understanding the basics here, we can easily go on the building the 2nd and 3rd stories only to find a collapsing structure. Myself and many others have found much heartache going this route. This foundation of knowing God's love includes the truths of justification and identification. It seems most must first come back to the cross before these things take root in a correct way. How blessed we are when we find that in our brokenness we find that our old self was crucified with Christ - that we now have a new resurrection life. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God (Col. 3.3).
