Whether a rock star, teacher or special leader, we have all been somewhat infatuated at one time or another with someone we did not know well. Perhaps you have been the object of someone else’s infatuation. Webster says that infatuation is “foolish or all-absorbing passion…” It also says that it is temporary.
Some people come to Jesus that way. They are so excited about being near Him or listening to Him, yet their infatuation did not last long because it was self-centered. The rich young ruler who desired to obtain eternal life is a good example of this. Jesus said, “One thing you lack: go and sell all you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.” But at these words he was saddened, and he went away grieving, for he was one who owned much property.” Mark 10:21-22. NASB.
Perhaps we can learn a lesson here that infatuation is not what God intended for any of us. In fact, He did not say “infatuate one another.” On the other hand, He did say, “Love one another.” Let’s not get the two mixed up.
