"Relentless Love", The Burning Heart of God


Have you ever asked a couple what the favorite part of their relationship was when they first began dating? Most couples will begin to reminisce about the early stages a.k.a. “the chase”. You know, the part where the girl pretends she’s not interested in the guy and makes him chase after her. After while, she falls madly in love with him and they live happily ever after…

These are such fun times in any relationship because it reveals the burning desire to want to be with someone. Not necessarily because of anything that person has done, but just because of who they are. Just as a man pursues a woman, God is constantly pursuing his people. The question is, will you respond to his love?

The Lord has eyes like a flaming fire that burn with zeal for his Bride. He wants our love! It’s the currency of heaven and it’s a language that we can all understand. He desires a response to his love. Love responses that come directly from our hearts.
When you’re in a relationship with someone, you wouldn’t want your partner to feel like they are “forced” to love you. Could you imagine? Having to force yourself to spend time with that person or even forcing yourself to talk to them. Lovers will always out work the workers. The Father longs for a people who will voluntarily and wholeheartedly love him.

He constantly chases after us no matter what he has to do. He binds himself to us and even continues to chase after us even when we run from him. Why? Because you are significant and important to God! The Father has created you with a specific purpose and has designed you with a longing to fulfill that purpose. The Father calls us and chases us because he alone knows our potential and plans for us. This is better than any romance movie you could ever see or imagine!

So how do we respond to his love? Firstly, we must make a determined decision to love God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength. Our love to God is expressed through our obedience to him.  Revelation of God’s love equips our heart to love Jesus. We love God with all our heart only as we see that he loves us with all of his heart. We love him because he first loved us. Once we set our hearts to love Jesus, he says that he will give us a new heart and put a new spirit within us.

And in return, we pursue the presence of God and behold HIS beauty! Talk about a romance story!
