PSALM 119:10 (CEB)
I have sought you with all my heart.
Don’t let me stray from any of your commandments!
1 JOHN 5:3 (NCV)
Loving God means obeying his commands. And God’s commands are not too hard for us...
If you truly love God, you'll turn your attention to following his instructions.
Thank you, God, for giving us the directions needed to live lives that please you. It's no great secret. Yet, I'm prone to go halfway. I'm an enthusiastic student of the Bible but I'm not nearly so passionate about living out your instructions. I mean, they aren't hard but they are inconvenient and I'll have to change some things. Lead me through the changes that I need to make so that my life honors Christ Jesus, who is your living set of instructions. Amen.
