I love you but I'm not in love with you…

I love you but I’m not in love with you…

That little line has been heard by lovers, husbands and wives among others for years. It does seem if one says I love you but I’m not in love with you means that although you acknowledge their existence you do not care about them enough that you desire any part of your life to be devoted to them, in other words, the way the person has or has not changed your life hasn’t exactly impacted you much.

If we call ourselves Christians, born of the new birth, that implies we desire Christ and desire God’s will for our lives. It implies we want to get to know the person and have a relationship. With God we do this in prayer, and studying his Word which is our only means of communicating with the person we claim to love.

Lastly, when we have a relationship and desire to please someone we tell others about the beauty of the relationship, the greatness of the person and desire that they experience the same unequivocal joy.

So, Christian, I think we both know we have a hard time defending any claim that we would desire to do any of this for a person that we barely are acquainted with.
