Give Yourself to Love the Lord

1
Give yourself to love the Lord.
No other way is so prevailing
And no other way, no other way is so safe.
2
Give yourself to love the Lord.
No other way is so rich,
And so full, oh so full, of enjoyment.
  Each morning we must rise up and say to Him,
“Lord Jesus, I love You.”
3
Give yourself to love the Lord.
Do not care for anything else;
Just love Him! Do not care!
Give yourself to love the Lord!
  We are not our own, Lord;
All we have we give to You.
Lord Jesus! Lord Jesus!
Lord Jesus, we love You!

It is so easy to be distracted from loving the Lord even on account of good things (Revelation 2:1-7). So thankful to be reminded that no other way is so safe than to just love the Lord Jesus.

As long as we love Him from the deepest part of our being, everything will be all right.

In our day beginning from the minute we wake up we could endlessly keep caring for so many things. But this morning I just loved the precious realization that all I really need to care about is to love our dear Lord Jesus!

Thank You Lord Jesus, we can give ourselves to love YOU!! And not care for anything else. Just love You! No other way is so rich. No other way is so prevailing. No other way is so safe. Lord Jesus, I love You! We are not our own Lord, all we have we give to You! Lord Jesus, we love You!!

Often, I find myself considering so many things that I just get bogged down in my ruminations - but really, the prevailing and most enjoyable way is that we just GIVE ourselves to love Him. Lord, simplify me, make me one who just loves You. Lord Jesus, I love You.

Lord I give myself & my college years to love You. I am not my own, I belong to You alone. Each and every morning I want to wake up to behold Your face, and tell You how much I love You! I take You as my everything Lord.

"Just love Him, do not care! Give yourself to love the Lord!"

Lord, I want to respond by saying that, I just love You so much, and I don't care what the world thinks. I will choose to be a living overcomer! I will choose my spirit today! And I will pay the price - to give my whole being to love You.

Give yourself to love the Lord. No other way is so prevailing, and no other way is so safe, so rich, and so full of enjoyment. Just love Him. Do not care for anything else. Teachings, doctrines, gifts, and power do not mean much. We must continually tell the Lord, "Lord, keep me in Your love! Attract me with Yourself! Keep me all the time in Your loving presence!" If we will pray in this way, we will see what love we will have toward the Lord and what kind of life we will live. We will simply live by the Lord Himself. As long as we love Him from the deepest part of our being, everything will be all right. If we need wisdom, He will be the wisdom to us. If we need power, He will be the power. If we need the proper and adequate knowledge, He will even be that to us. Whatever we need, He is. Do not try to get anything else; just look to Him that He would reveal His love to you. Song of Songs 1:4 says, "Draw me, we will run after thee." We must ask the Lord to draw us, and then others will run after Him with us. To take Him as our life, we must love Him in such a way.

In Revelation 2 the degradation of the church began with the loss of the first love toward the Lord Jesus. The church in Ephesus had many good works and was even strong in faith, but the Lord rebuked her by saying, "I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love." They had lost the fresh and best love toward the Lord. This started the degradation of the churches. When we lose our love for the Lord, we start to backslide. We must go to the Lord and make a deal with Him: "Lord, be merciful to me! I do not need anything or anyone else but Your loving Self. Simply show me Yourself! Draw me that we may run after You. O Lord, show me Your love that I might be constrained by Your love! I do not want to do anything for You, Lord. I just want to love You. I just want to take You as my Person. I want Your personality as my personality, Your will as my will, Your desires as my desires. I want Your everything as my everything."

Thus, we see that it is not simply a matter of believing, but also a matter of loving. We must learn to love the Lord Jesus. If we would have such a burning love toward the Lord Jesus, we will enjoy all that He is. Therefore, I do not encourage you to seek anything else. Go to the Lord and ask Him to draw you that you may run after Him. You must realize that the "zoe-life" is such a loving, wonderful Person and that love is the way to deal with Him.
