Loving God is a command

Daily Thought

Your Word for 22 July 2024

Genesis 48:21
Then he said to Joseph, ‘Look, I am about to die, but God will be with you and bring you back to the land of your fathers.’

January 2013 756Joshua 22:5 ‘But be very careful to keep the commandments and the law that Moses the servant of the Lord gave you: to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways, to obey his commands, to hold fast to Him, and to serve Him with all your heart and with all you soul.’
How do you follow a command?  By making the decision.  Our love for God needs to be total, involving our whole being.

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

This effects how we should seek Him.  This effects how we should fear Him.  This effects how we should obey Him.  This effects how we should love and serve Him.  Let us make this decision that we are going to love God.
