Love for Jesus: Our Greatest Defense

Our greatest defense against spiritual adultery and for example seeking “alternate forms of healing” is to maintain our love for Jesus. When as Christians we grow in our sincere devotion to Jesus (2 Cor. 11:3; Col. 2:6; Jude 1:21), we develop a strong immunity to spiritual seduction. In this audio message, I use the paradigm of marriage to gain a deeper understanding of this concept. We grow in Christ as we grow in our love for Him. This also happens when we grow in our experience and awareness of Christ’s love for us, for which I present a succinct overview of John 11 and application to our lives. To seek healing, transformation and wholeness means growing in Christ in whom alone is eternal life (John 1:12-13, 4:13).
