Now we go on to the # 4 of the ways to show how much we love Christ. God provided in His Word on how we can cherish and make much of Him more:
“The voice of my beloved! Behold, he comes, leaping over the mountains, bounding over the hills. My beloved is like a gazelle or a young stag. Behold, there he stands behind our wall, gazing through the windows, looking through the lattice. My beloved speaks and says to me:”Arise, my love, my beautiful one, and come away,” Song of Solomon 2: 8-10
Like a lover who wants to please his beloved, we should be attentive always to God. Here are the things we should pay close attention if we want to be attentive to God:
a) To His voice:
“Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says, “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, on the day of testing in the wilderness,” Hebrews 3: 7-8
Be ready to listen to what He wants for you to do.
b) To His coming:
“I am coming soon. Hold fast what you have, so that no one may seize your crown.” Revelations 3:11
Be ready for His imminent coming and keep pressing to do His will.
c) To His calling:
Therefore I, the prisoner of the Lord, implore you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called, Ephesians 4:1
Be ready to walk to what He has set us to walk on.
