You are whom you love.. Love has the capacity to transform us to bethe one whomwe love.. when someone loves materials.. thentheir nature, their thoughtsgets transformed to bematerialistic. Similarly, when we love a human being and surrender ourselves to them.. then slowly the love transforms us to be like them.. it is not just limited to imitating them, but slowly transforms them.. to be like them.. I have seen my very close cousins who after marriage have changed to be like their spouse.. they start speaking, thinking and acting like them.
This transforming capacity of Love is something which we need to be more carefulabout.. before we choose to love and surrender ourselves.. if we surrender to the wrong person.. whenthe transformationhappens people don't even realize the sinful nature they are changing toand thesins they are commiting.. they are totally intransformed to the sinful nature, that they no longer have control or realization of their possibility of being different from what they are.
But when we look at the positive side of this transforming capacity of love.. when we are in love with God and His love for us.. we are getting transformed to Him gradually through the Holy Spirit. To Love the Lord is the most best thing that can happen in our lives.. and He should be our only Love and nothing or no one else in other than Him.. we as Christains need to understand the mystery of being transformed to Christ.. because of the Love we have for Him.. it is nothing but the love that transforms us to be like Him, to do like Him and to Live like him and to be transformed like Him.. It is the love we have for Him which leads us to Heaven.
(NIV) Ephesians 3:17-19so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord's holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,and to know this love that surpasses knowledge - that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
