WEDNESDAY IN THE WORD

Falling In Love With Jesus... By Dee Brestin and Kathy Troccoli. The book is about abandoning yourself to the the greatest romance of your life. 


I've read the book once and now I have started it again. Amazing at how we find brand new insights to an already read book! 


Dee talks about her marriage being in three stages. 
1: First Love
2: Wilderness Love
3: Invincible Love


She says, "Most marriages never make it to the 3rd stage. Though couples may stay married, they do not arrive at invincible love. After the exciting time of first love, they get lost in the wilderness. 

But...there are couples that find their way into the promised land of invincible love. This is absolutely the sweetest place on earth."

 This is a friend of mine...Marsha Cole's parents! Love this picture!

But, lets think about these 3 bullet points in reference to our relationship with the Lord.

Sadly, a lot of believers never make it to the third stage of Invincible Love. They love the Lord and they have times of intimacy with Him but basically their lives are devoid of passion for Him.

If not careful we will simply wind up having a rendezvous with the Very One who USED to be the love of our life!

I don't know about you my friend but I deeply desire to have a mature and tender love with my Savior. 

When I think about the sweetness of love for Jesus I always think about Mary wiping the feet of Jesus with her hair.

 John 12:3..........Then Mary took about a pint of pure nard, an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus' feet and wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.

Oh that we could be like Mary and love Jesus with such an invincible love.

Happy Wednesday!
