Growing in the Christian life flows from a communion with Christ in which you love Jesus by savoring the depth of his love for you. “We love because he first loved us” (1 John 4:19). The more you see God’s love for you, the more you will grow in loving God. This is why the apostle Paul prayed so passionately that we would know more of the depth and length and breadth of Christ’s love (Eph. 3:18): we will grow in love for Christ as we get a clearer view of Christ’s love for us.
