Is it okey to express your love for Jesus as a Jehovah's witness?
It should be, even though it would lift some eyebrows in the congregation. Let's see what Jesus said:
"In turn, whoever loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and will clearly show myself to him.” (John 14:21)
Or the following statements of apostle Peter:
"in order that the tested quality of your faith,...., may be found a cause for praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 8 Though you never saw him, you love him. Though you do not see him now, yet you exercise faith in him and are greatly rejoicing with an indescribable and glorious joy, 9 as you attain the goal of your faith, your salvation." (1Peter 1:7-9)
The problem with the WT organization in this respect, I experienced, that the love for Jesus is not taught adequately at the meetings.
Commonly at the meetings it is said that all Jesus did and said was for God's glory.
True in some way. But I got the impression from the WT organization that we should restrict our feelings for Jesus. Because otherwise it would compete with our love for Jehovah God.
But that would be the same as to say that we should not grow in our love for each other, because that would compete with our love for Jehovah.
How then to arrange our love for Jehovah God and Jesus and our fellows and even our enemies so that our love would be properly tuned?
I think this is only possible by prayer and by the help of God's power, the holy spirit.
As a conclusion let's remember Jesus said: “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6)
