But what does this look like practically? How do these distinctions show themselves each day in our families, work, and local churches?

    Showing Love Through the Holy Spirit

    An excerpt from “Loving Jesus More" by Philip Graham Ryken

    It is also possible to grieve the Spirit, which we do whenever we persist in rebellious sin. After all, the Spirit is a Holy Spirit, and therefore as he lives in us, he wants us to be holy. The context in which the Bible tells us not to grieve the Spirit is noteworthy. “Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths,” the Scripture says. “Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice” (Eph. 4:29, 31). Bad language, hate speech, and words that tear people down grieve the Spirit of God.

    An excerpt from “Loving Jesus More" by Philip Graham Ryken

    Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. (Rom. 5:1–5)

    Beneath the Cross of Jesus
    By: Elizabeth Clephane

    Beneath the cross of Jesus I fain would take my stand,

    A home within the wilderness, a rest upon the way,
    From the burning of the noontide heat, and the burden of the day.

    Are We Loving Jesus Less?

    I have given this book the simplest title I could: Loving Jesus More. But this title presupposes yet another problem. If we say that we want to love Jesus more—or that we ought to love him more, whether we want to or not—then we are admitting that we do not love Jesus as much as we should. Logically, the only people who can love Jesus more are people who love him less. And unfortunately this is true for all of us. Our love is limited—not just for one another, but also for Jesus.
