And now, Israel, what does the Lord your God require of you, but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in all His ways and to love Him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. Deuteronomy 10:12 NKJV
These words were spoken to the children of Israel. God desired their worship and obedience. The Lord wanted Israel to love Him with all of their hearts and souls.
God is revealing the same unchanging truth to you today.
In biblical times the children of Israel were the people of God. Today all people who call on the name of Jesus are the people of God. People who live in submission to Jesus are God’s children. God has the same desires for us He had for the children of Israel.
Jesus desires your worship and obedience today. He wants you to love Him with all of your heart and soul today!
How can we love God with all of our hearts and souls? How can we love God who is invisible when we have such a hard time loving our neighbors whom we see so often?
The revelation of God’s love enables us to live our lives as a love song to Jesus. God’s great love enables us to worship and obey Him. The reality of God’s love transforms us into people who love God with all of our hearts and souls!
The Christian life is a journey. There is much God wants to teach us and show us. He wants to do great and mighty things in us and through us. It all begins with the revelation that Jesus loves us. It continues with the revelation that God desires our love!
It is easy to become distracted by the fast pace of life. It is easy to become distracted by difficult circumstances or living a life of prosperity. We can become frustrated trying to live the Christian life in our own strength and wisdom!
We are all guilty of taking our eyes off of Jesus from time to time.
The Lord is waiting for you to fall in love with Him all over again. Jesus is waiting for you to love Him with all of your heart and with all of your soul!
