What things do you hold dear?

Philippians 3 “7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.
8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, 9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: 10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;”

This love that Paul had for Jesus was not a "thou shalt love." The love Paul had for Jesus was simply a response, a reflex, a result of the knowledge of the love Jesus had for Paul.

1 John 4 “10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.”

The more we grow in the knowledge of the love of God for us, the more our life will take on different meaning. Reflexively, Responsively, and Empowered by that very love of God towards us. NEVER THOU SHALT, BUT, I CANT HELP BUT LOVE! I love you all very much!(NLM)
