do i really love jesus?

As I was standing in church yesterday, singing of the blessings that I experience because of Christ, something grabbed at me.

Do I love Jesus because of His benefits or because of His person?

So often, we do a good job of acknowledging and talking about Christ, but only in conjunction with specific blessing or enhanced experiences of common grace.

How often do I talk about and enjoy Jesus simply because Jesus is radiantly glorious in His very person and essence?

Do I love the gift or do I love the Giver?

Do I love to be saved or do I love the Savior?

Do I love joy or do I love the Object and Source and Author of joy?

If the benefits of having Christ were removed, would I be content and overjoyed to just have Christ?
