Romancing the King

Romancing the King

On today’s podcast, Stasi shares the amazing depth of God’s love for each of us individually. As the great Romancer of our hearts, he uniquely pursues us as his beloved. Did you know that we can romance his heart as well? What does that look like? Friends, he loved us first, and we romance him as we love him back. Let’s unpack that a little together and sink more deeply into his extravagant love—and then, let’s romance his heart with our loving gaze. Stasi ends the podcast by leading us through an encounter with Jesus, a space to focus on resting in His embrace and experiencing His unfathomable love.





Ephesians 3:16-19 (NLT) —  I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. 18 And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

John 17:23 (NLT) —  I am in them and you are in me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me.

Ephesians 3:19 (NIV) —  …and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

Zephaniah 3:17 (Amplified Bible) — “The Lord your God is in your midst, a Warrior who saves. He will rejoice over you with joy; He will be quiet in His love [making no mention of your past sins], He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy.

Song of Song 2:14 (NLT) — My dove is hiding behind the rocks, behind an outcrop on the cliff. Let me see your face; let me hear your voice. For your voice is pleasant, and your face is lovely.

Song of Song 2:4 (NIV) — Let him lead me to the banquet hall, and let his banner over me be love.

Song of Song 4:9 (NLT) — You have captured my heart, my treasure, my bride. You hold it hostage with one glance of your eyes, with a single jewel of your necklace.

James 4:8 (NLT) — Come close to God, and God will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; purify your hearts, for your loyalty is divided between God and the world.

Ephesians 2:6 (NLT) — For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus.

Psalms 139:17-18 (NLT) — How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me!



Quote: Timothy Keller: “The only person who dares wake up a king at 3:00 AM for a glass of water is a child. We have that kind of access.”

Poem: Indwelt by A.S. Wilson

Not merely in the words you say,

Not only in your deeds confessed,

But in the most unconscious way

Is Christ expressed.

Is it a beatific smile,

A holy light upon your brow;

Oh no, I felt His Presence while

You laughed just now.

For me ‘twas not the truth you taught

To you so clear, to me still dim

But when you came to me you brought

A sense of Him.

And from your eyes He beckons me,

And from your heart His love is shed,

Til I lose sight of you and see

The Christ instead.
