The question I wanted to present to you today is …
How Much Do You Love the Lord?
Is it enough that you’ve spoke to Him in prayer today?
Is it enough that you craved His Word today by reading your Bible?
Is it enough that you have included Him throughout the day in your decisions?
Is it enough that you thanked and praised Him throughout your day?
Is it enough that you chose to please Him instead of doing something that you shouldn’t do?
If ye love me, keep my commandments. John 14:15 kjv
Thank you, Lord Jesus, for loving me enough to pay the penalty of death & sin so that I could receive the gift of eternal life. Thank you that I’ve had the privilege to hear the gospel so that I’ve had the opportunity to accept you as my Savior. Thank you for loving me even when I fail to do the things I should…thank you so much for your enduring mercy, love and grace. Thank you that I have the freedom today to attend the Lord’s house. I pray I never take that for granted.
And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. Mark 12:30 kjv
