Comes after

Christianity is the pursuit of Christ.

And our pursuit of Him.

Which comes after His pursuit of us.

It is not you who chose me, but it is I who chose you and appointed you that you might go and be fruitful and that your fruit might remain; so that whatever petition you present to the Father in my name He may give you. (Jesus, John 15:16, Weymouth NT)

“If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. “He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.’” (John 7:37b-38, NASB)

Christianity is the love of Christ.

And our love of Him.

Which comes after His love for us.

We love him, because he first loved us. (1 John 4:19, KJV)

This is love: not that we have loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins. (1 John 4:10, ISV)
