Do you Love the Lord?

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.
Deuteronomy 6:5 NIV

I have a big question for you. Do you love God with all your heart? I think many would say yes. Being honest with ourselves I think the majority of us love the Lord out of necessity! It’s just what you do right? You dont not want to love the lord.

We feel great about ourselves when we worship, we are lifted up. However I think many of us just go through the motions.We go to church, watch some Christian TV, listen to radio, and pray occasionally. Amen we are good Christians. When we pray its asking God for selfish things, with the occasional please help so and so. Many of us, and I am guilty of it, treat the Lord like some genie who is granting wishes….I ask you to think about how you feel about your wife, husband, kids, and family. Would you lay your life down for them? All day long; most would say. I know I would sacrifice my life for them. Now, would you lay your life down for God? At this moment being honest with myself..I dont know if I would. I would like to think I would but I am not sure. Real love was demonstrated by our lord for us. Sacrifice! What do you sacrifice for him? There are those who have sacrificed their life for God. I am not saying to go do that to demonstrate your love. However I for one know I could love a lot more and its starts from inside the heart. Changing the heart and mind. Then showing love to all of Gods Children. Set aside time for just you and him. Sacrifice your phone or TV and pray. Get your butt up and go to church, worship with his children. ITS NOT HARD BUT MANY FALL SHORT. We can all make the change Amen.
