El Amor de Jesús por su esposa/The Love of Jesus for his wife

in HeartChurch2 years ago (edited)

El amor de Jesus por su esposa,la iglesia, tiene un proposito: Librarla del pecado, limpiarla de toda mancha, quitar toda arruga de sus vestiduras y llevarla a la santidad.Jesus ama tanto a su esposa, la iglesia, que para librarla de pecar sufrió el dolor de la cruz.
Cuando entendemos este mensaje de amor, se vuelve el principal motivo que nos lleva a cambiar.Su amornse vuelve el motivo para buscar la santidad.El Apostol Pablo nos dijo que " el amor de Cristo nos constriñe"(2 de Corintios 5:4).

El amor de Dios provoca en nosotros una urgencia de cambio.Somos literalmente empujados a cambiar.Ninguna otra cosa provocará en nosotros el cambio deseado.Ni la mas estricta disciplina, ni el mas cruel castigo,solo el amor de Dios.Las reglas no cambian el corazon de nadie, sino que mecanizan a las personas.Si les quitan las reglas volveran a lo mismo, pero el amor si los cambiaria.La obediencia provocada por las reglas es temerosa y austera.En cambio, la obediencia provocada por el amor es alegre y llena de vida.

Jesus' love for his wife, the church, has one purpose: To rid her of sin, cleanse her of every stain, remove every wrinkle from her garments, and bring her to holiness.

Jesus loves his wife, the church, so much that to free her from sin suffered the pain of the cross. When we understand this message of love, it becomes the main reason that leads us to change. His love becomes the motive to seek holiness. The Apostle Paul told us that "the love of Christ constrains us" (2 Corinthians 5: 4).

God's love provokes in us an urge for change. We are literally pushed to change. Nothing else will bring about the desired change in us. Not the strictest discipline, not the cruellest punishment, only God's love.

Rules do not change anyone's heart, but they mechanize people. If the rules are taken away, they will return to the same thing, but love would change them. The obedience provoked by the rules is fearful and austere. instead, obedience provoked by love is joyful and full of life.

Before lighting the first star, before the first creature began to sing the praises of its Creator, He loved His Church with an everlasting love. He saw her through the glass of predestination, imagined her in His divine foreknowledge, and loved her with all His heart; and it was for this cause that he left his Father and joined her so that he could redeem her.
