God Wants You To Love Him
God wants our love:
One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, "Of all the commandments, which is the most important?" "The most important one," answered Jesus, "is this: 'Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.' The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these." (Mark 12:28-31)
Please notice the emphasis here is to be on us loving God - not God loving us! Many in our day have so stressed the love of God that our love for Him is not even mentioned, much less exalted as it should be! This is the **First** and **Greatest** commandment! Our love for God is to be more than our love for our family, friends, etc., even our own lives.
The world is full of sexual temptations, but men and women can have the power to overcome not just the struggle, but even full-blown addiction
Good Morning. Confess: Today summon Your power on me, O God, and show me Your strength as You have done before; Ps 68:28
