The struggle of the will…

It is easy to fall in love with Jesus. Everything about his life and teachings are attractive beyond measure. When Jesus calls us to love him, it is always attached to a command. Loving Jesus is not a sentimental feeling; loving Jesus is an act of our will that changes our very actions. Once we were seeking our own way, now we are seeking Another’s will. To love Jesus is to engage in a transaction of the will, not of our emotions. – Ron Friesen
