Fall In Love With Jesus – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional August 18th

(To Know Jesus Is To Love Him)

TO THE BIBLE: Philippians 3:10 AMPC
“[For my determined purpose is] that I may know Him [that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly], and that I may in that same way come to know the power outflowing from His resurrection….”

Anyone who doesn’t love Jesus doesn’t know Him. If they ever get to know who He is, they’ll most certainly fall in love with Him.

The more you know Jesus, the more you love Him! It brings to mind the story of Paul before his conversion.

He was a Pharisee and a member of the critic-religious sect that spearheaded the persecution of Christians in the early Church.

Authorised by the government of the day, the Bible says, “…Saul just went wild, devastating the church, entering house after house after house, dragging men and women off to jail” (Acts 8:3 MSG).

He didn’t stop at that. Luke tells us how he continued to issue violent threats of murder against the followers of the Lord (Acts 9:1).

But something happened that changed his life forever. He had a destiny-shaping encounter with the Lord on the road to Damascus.

The Bible says, “As he was nearing Damascus on this mission, suddenly a brilliant light from heaven spotted down upon him! He fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to him, “Paul! Paul! Why are you persecuting me?” “Who is speaking, sir?” Paul asked.

And the voice replied, “I am Jesus, the one you are persecuting! Now get up and go into the city and await my further instructions.” (Acts 9:3-6 TLB). Hallelujah!

Paul, as a result of this new knowledge of the Lord, couldn’t keep back anymore; everywhere he went, he testified that Jesus is alive and that He’s real!

Paul’s love for Jesus was unquenchable because he now knew the Lord. No wonder he said in Ephesians 3:19, “To know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.”

This is God’s will for you: that you’d have a revelation of Christ beyond human understanding and be filled with His fullness, overflowing in His love, manifesting His life, nature, character, and power. Hallelujah!

Dear Father, thank you for the revelation of your unfathomable, unconditional, pure, and eternal love in my spirit. I’m rooted and grounded in your love, and I manifest and radiate your love to my world today, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
