Verses:

 

2 Cor. 11:2 “For I am jealous over you with a jealousy of God; for I betrothed you to one husband to present you as a pure virgin to Christ.”

 

Excerpts:

 

Life is a person, and there is no other way to apply and enjoy this person but by love. The Lord Jesus is not a doctrine; He is not a set of gifts or a power; He is a person who needs our love, our appreciation, and our affection. How we need the sweet affection and love toward the Lord Jesus!

 

We may talk about Christ being our life, but if we do not have the real love toward Him, He is only life to us in doctrine. If we would enjoy Jesus as life, we must love Him. As long as we love Him, even if we do not know the term life, we will enjoy life. We will not know a doctrine, but we will enjoy Jesus, a living person, as our very life.

 

To love Him as a person, we must take His personality. We may have many teachings with all the gifts and power, and yet we would not take the personality of Christ. The Lord Jesus needs someone like Peter to love Him, someone to tell Him, “O Lord Jesus, I love You! I follow You. I take You as my person. I take Your personality as my personality. I take Your will as my will. I take Your desire as my desire. I do not care for teachings, gifts, and power. I just care for You. I love You, and I follow You, taking You as my person.” (Life and Building as Portrayed in the Song of Songs, ch. 2)
