The Consequences of Love, Part I

Peter and I went to see The Curious Case of Benjamin Button on Saturday. I won't spoil the movie, so you can't have all the context, but one idea has remained with me and I've pondered it these past few days. There is a scene where this exchange takes place between benjamin and his love, when they are facing a difficult circumstance:

DAISY: "I’m going to make this work. This is what I want, and I want it
with you."
BENJAMIN:"You know, there’s nothing I wouldn’t do for you."
DAISY: "...I know the consequences. I accepted that. Your love, loving you, is worth everything to me."

In the theatre Peter whispered to me, "Do you know the consequences of loving me?" Though I have been pondering those thoughts, and there are many consequences of loving Peter, I've realized I need to analyze the consequences of the greater love in my life-- Christ.

What are the consequences of loving Christ?
