Humbled

“Why do you love Me?”

I love God because of the many things He does for me… He is my rescuer, my liberator, my saviour. But I still do not love Him for Him apart from anything He does for me.

“Would you be willing to remain in chains if I asked you to?”

I long for freedom from concupiscence, I yearn to grow in holiness that I might stop fearing suffering… I’ve got it all backwards without realising.

I do not yet love God for simply being who He is. That is why I am still a beginner in love.

“Let Me love you.”
