Do you have any affection for the Biblical Jesus?

I’m still sick and wasn’t really up to writing anything much. So, I thought I’d leave you with this video.

The Bible says that the greatest commandment is to love God with all your heart, soul, strength and mind. It is obviously impossible to keep this commandment if we don’t really want Christ for himself. It is clear enough from scripture that we are not saved if we do not love Jesus. And there is no getting away from the fact that love is not just intellectual assent and it is not just obedience (though it’s not any less than that).

But none of us love Jesus perfectly. None of us have perfect affection for Christ. So how can we ever know that we are saved? RC Sproul answers:
