10 Reasons to Fall in Love with Jesus: Reason #4

Welcome back to Nancy Rue's series of guest posts on Ten Reasons to Fall in Love with Jesus! If you've missed the previous days, you can catch up here. Now here's Nancy Rue with today's Reason #4:

For the mini-women:Like most M-W’s, you’re probably way aware that the Valentine’s Day season is here, and you probably either love the cards, the candy, the frills – or you can’t wait for the thing to be over because it makes you so painfully aware of who DOESN’T like you! One being DOES like you. He loves you, in fact. He’s just waiting for YOU to fall in love with HIM. Why would you? In ten different posts, each one giving you a peek at a feature from the FaithGirlz Bible, we’re giving you a Reason To Fall In Love With JESUS. Here’s the fourth one.

Reason #4: Because Jesus makes you want to try harder and be better. How many rules do you obey ONLY because you don’t want to get in trouble? Like if you didn’t HAVE to follow them, you wouldn’t? Here’s the thing about Jesus: he doesn’t give you a bunch of rules to make you feel like you’re in a cage; when you love him, you actually WANT to do better and be better. And when you want to, you will. You’ll even realize you can do things – good things – you never thought you could.
