The Account of Loving God
As Christians in the Body of Christ we know we serve a loving God each day. It’s up to us to show the love back to others.
“It’s very clear from Biblical history and Jewish history that Jewish monotheism wasn’t developed in an instant, that it became gradually the accepted norm. But undoubtedly, Jewish ancestors were polytheists.” ― Robert Winston
5 Love God, your God, with your whole heart: love him with all that’s in you, love him with all you’ve got! Deuteronomy 6:5 MSG
The Bible taught us many times how to love God. In Deuteronomy 6:5-7, it stated:
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
God instructed Moses to tell the Israelite’s how to love Him. God said that loving Him must be engraved in their hearts for them to live and glorify Him every day. God is not only talking about the Israelite’s that were alive on that day. God wants the next generations to know how to love Him.
God instructed the Israelite’s to teach their children the ways on how to love Him. God wants His people to walk in the path of righteousness. He knows that loving Him will not only show how glorious He is. But they can have a good life with God.
Loving God and New possibilities
Loving and living for God brings new life for His people. God is teaching His people how to love Him for them to walk in the path of righteousness. God knows that walking with Him maybe hard sometimes. But it can bring extra ordinary things in their lives.
God wants us to love Him not just to show how powerful and amazing He is. God wants us to have a blessed life. People who walk in faith and honor God with their lives have a different perspective every day. Observe the people who do not believe in God. They see all the miserable things around them. Most of them have a negative mindset. They get bitter with the bad things that happened to them in the past.
Believing and loving God brings transformation in the mind and life of people. Loving God is not the only thing that you see with their actions but they trust God with their future. Christians have a different perspective of life. They do not worry about the unknown. They trust God even more.
Loving God is trusting God every day.
Loving God brings security. It brings transformation in the heart and soul. It opens possibilities for people who walk in obedience. Every day there is transformation. Even in difficult moments, they see possibilities. They trust God that He is about to bring a new season in their lives.
