TOPIC: PASSIONATE LOVE FOR GOD
SCRIPTURE: Moreover, because I have set my affection to the house of my God, I have of mine own proper good, of gold and silver, which I have given to the house of my God, over and above all that I have prepared for the holy house. – 1 Chronicles 29:3
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The level of your love for God is what determines how far He can take you.
Loving God is an indispensable attribute in the life of everyone who desires to make heaven. You cannot make heaven if the love of God is not real in your life. To love God is to become great in life but to dishonour God is to end as a liability on earth.
Now, what does it mean to love God?
A heart that loves God pants and yearns for Him. To love God means to put God above everything and everybody. David was a young man who loved God to the point of confronting and killing a war giant (Goliath) as a teenager. The level of your love for God is what determines how far God can take you.
There are many people who are very cold towards God; nothing about God moves them, but when you talk about politics, a new dress, a new car, a husband or wife, they come alive and become active.
Beloved, do you really love and obey God from your heart? Does your attitude towards God confirm your interest and value for Him?
Make up your mind to love God because not to love God is to rust in life.
Remember this: The level of your love for God is what determines how far He can take you.
1. Love God with all your heart, soul and mind.
