Would You Choose to Love Someone Who'd Never Choose You?

If you knew that no matter how long you love someone, (what you do for them, how many times you tell them that you love them,) that they would never choose you and would never love you, would you continue to love them for eternity? Would you want to sacrifice your time and energy for those who would never accept you? Would you continue to pursue someone who you knew, come rain or shine, they would never say yes to you?

[…]if someone says no to us, we reject them. Some of us put up a good fight, but we stop eventually because we weren't as crucial to the one we wanted to be accepted by as we hoped. This is our nature.

Jesus is the anomaly of us. He knew while he was hanging on that cross that many will reject his sacrifice and love. Y'all, God knew that not everyone would say yes to Jesus, but he chooses to love regardless of it.

[…]Saying, "Hey Jesus, I'm with you," is to say, "even if no person says yes to me Lord, I want to keep pursuing your children with eyes like yours, heart like the one you have, and acceptance that has no prerequisites."

Call Me Crazy: Break the Alabaster Daily

What are you withholding from Christ? What are you keeping away from him and why? Why are you allowing the perspective of others to have control over how you worship your Savior? So many times, we want Christianity to be our religious status. We forget that to follow Christ is to allow him to penetrate and reconstruct every aspect of who we are.

This woman realized something that I pray to God I never forget. She realized that the alabaster jar she had (beautiful and all) was meaningless because Christ is more priceless, more precious, and beyond worthy of anything she ever owned.
