“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.”
