Is loving Jesus a feeling?
Here's the answer:
No, loving Jesus is not a feeling. It is a choice.
Love is not just a feeling. Love is a choice. Think about the last time you got mad at a friend or a sibling. You probably didn’t feel too loving toward them, but you still chose to love them. We have to choose to love Jesus. Love is not based solely on our feelings.
The first step to loving Jesus is to know Him. You can come to know Him by believing in Jesus and His finished work on the cross (John 3:16). When we accept Jesus, we receive the Holy Spirit. He will help us to love Jesus and others better.
There are many things that will try to stop us from loving Jesus. One of the things that will try to prevent us from loving Jesus is the things of the world. We have to choose to love Jesus rather than to love the world (1 John 2:15). Loving Jesus is a decision you can make every day. Some days it might be harder than others, but the right choice is to always love Jesus.
"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. Love him with all your mind and with all your strength" (Mark 12:30).
"So be very careful to love the Lord your God" (Joshua 23:11).
"So we know that God loves us. We depend on it. God is love. Anyone who leads a life of love is joined to God. And God is joined to them" (1 John 4:16).
