Love language is so important to each of us.
Gary Chapman has famously pointed out five key ways of communicating love – touch, written words, acts of kindness, gifts and time.
We each have our strong suits and we know them by how we want to receive love from those around us. We know others strong suits because of how they express their love to others around them.
The key is to learn the other person’s love language and when we want to say, I love you, we will know how to do that in their language and they will quickly understand that you are saying, I love you. The hope of course is that the other person will also learn and communicate in your love language and not continue using their own.
So now that brief summary is over, how do we tell Jesus that we love Him?
I have experienced many different assurances of Jesus love, but the most dramatic of all was His call one night for me to come and spend time with Him. I can tell you that I am sure I felt His hand around my heart, pulling me to my quiet place. So for me, if I really want to tell Jesus that I love Him, I spend time with Him.
