What is our main reason for loving Jesus ? Is that because the Bible reveal He is our God, our Creator ? Is it because He promise us eternal life ? Is it because He died for us ?
Let me suggest that our main reason for loving Jesus is for who He is. For His character, for His faithfulness,His heart, His mind, His words, His works,His ways. In eternity we will be living forever with Him. If we do not like Him as described in the Bible then it will not make sense for us to plan our future with Him.
In this world we have learned to have relationship with people. And as a people we try our best but we fail most of the time. We fail to keep our promise but Jesus never fail. He showed us who God is, loving, merciful, faithful.
To love anybody more than Jesus is to say there is someone better than Him. Loving Jesus first puts us in better position to love others next.
Is loving Jesus idolatry ? no because He is God. God's revelation contained in the Bible tell us that God is the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit and it is also revealed that Jesus is the image of the invisible God.
Is Jesus number one in our life or we have another ?
