“You whom my soul loves.” Song of Solomon 1:7
Why do we love Jesus?
“We love Him, because He first loved us!” 1 John 4:19
We love Him, because He “gave Himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for Himself a people that are His very own!” Titus 2:14
We love Him, because we have life through His death, and forgiveness through His blood.
We love Him, because “though He was rich, yet for our sake He became poor, so that we through His poverty might become rich!” 2 Corinthians 8:9
We love Him, because of the excellency of His person. We are filled with . . .
a sense of His beauty,
an admiration of His charms,
a consciousness of His infinite perfections!
We love Him, because His greatness, goodness, and loveliness, in one resplendent ray–combine to enchant our soul until it is so ravished that it exclaims, “Yes, He is altogether lovely!”
We love Him, because His love binds our hearts with chains more soft than silk, and yet stronger than iron!
“To you who believe, He is precious!” 1 Peter 2:7
