Christ: The Perfect Romance

For the song that inspired this devotion, click  this link. Jars of Clay--Love Song for a Savior
I’ve always loved those movies where the hero and heroine didn’t understand each other in the beginning, but as their knowledge grew, so did their love. Even better, are the ones where the hero loved the girl, who didn’t return his love, yet he steadfastly cared for her (sometimes unbeknownst to her) through all her misfortunes and inadequacies, until she finally realized the depth of her own love.

That’toyss the story of Christ’s love for us. He loved us when we didn’t even know who He was. He loved us when we treated Him as “just a friend.” He loved us when we were angry because He let us fall or told us a truth we didn’t want to hear.

And though we too often treat Him like the neighbor with the good toys, hoping He lets us play at our own leisure—in other words, using Him—He still loves us.


Full, complete, whole love.

My prayer is that our lives end as one of those great romancesJesus on cross, where we see and understand the depth of the love from our Savior, the ultimate the sacrifice, and know not only His passion for us, but we become keenly aware of our own for Him.

Song of Songs 2: 10 “My lover spoke and said to me, ‘Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, and come with me.’”
