Is it me or am I allowed to be disconcerted at the current trend for worship songs that use "falling in love with Jesus/God" terminology? I just don't get it. Quite apart from the male thing about being uncomfortable with anything too intimate, it just doesn't feel right. I can't think of any point in Scripture where Christian discipleship is described with those terms, and I can only conclude it's some kind of extrapolation from the Church as the Bride of Christ. Either that or some dubious reading of the Song of Songs.
Saying you love Jesus is one thing; saying you are in love with him is something else. I have heard a passionate mainstage talk on this at a big Christian festival in the UK - we must all fall in love with Jesus to know fullness and all that. Wonder what Dietrich Bonhoeffer would have said - something like to follow Christ is to die, I suspect. Hmmm
