Do You Love God?
You can’t honestly say that you love God unless you know Him and know yourself.
Do you love God? Are you personally involved with Him, or are you just relying on family or social traditions? Is your whole being involved or are you closing off part of your life from Him?
Do you love God? Love means more than just knowing or respecting Him. Are you giving Him a place of priority in your life above everything else? Is it love in words only, or are there actions that prove your love?
Do you love God? Do you love just the notion of a celestial being, or do you love the real God who deserves your devotion? Are you only interested in the parts of Him that you want (like His loving and forgiving nature)? Or, do you love God for all His attributes (such as His righteousness and holiness that abhor sinful behavior)?
Spend this day considering the question: “Do you love God?”
“And you must love the Lord your God with all you heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.” Mark 12:30
