Finding the Real Jesus Changes Your Life

We love because He first loved us. 1 John 4:19 (HCSB)

"Do I love the Lord my God with all my heart, mind and soul? Do I love my neighbor as myself?"

When people enter a real relationship with Jesus, they are never the same. Partyers don’t want to party the same way anymore. Couples realize they don’t want to live together outside of marriage. Business owners decide not to cut corners anymore. And friends will be confounded because they don’t understand these new lifestyle choices.

Your family will be changed because you will look at your spouse differently. You’ll now see him or her as a precious child of God whose job it is of yours to serve -- regardless of whether they serve you in return.

And you’ll see that your children are gifts from God and your goal with them is not to make sure they’re happy all the time; rather, it is to prepare them for an eternity with Jesus. You’ll also want to treat your parents with honor, not because of what they have or have not done in the past, but because God loves you. And, “we love because He first loved us.” (1 John 4:19 HCSB)
