There is a greater flame that Jesus lights in our soul that the passion we have from this world. This world thinks of love in a completely different way than God.

Jesus described in ways like being hungry for God. Or being thirsty for God. George Herbert a little differently but may our hearts pant after God.

Immortal Heat, O let thy greater flame

Attract the lesser to it: let those fires,
Which shall consume the world, first make it tame;
And kindle in our hearts such true desires,
As may consume our lusts, and make thee way.
Then shall our hearts pant thee.
—–George Herbert (1593 -1633)
