So what does this all mean? Well, of course Love! No, but seriously, it's about Loving God with all your heart and all your soul and all your mind no matter what. It's about putting God first in everything, literally. In today's world you can get your focus off God and on things of this world. Your focus must be on eternal things. Not your spouse, boyfriend, girlfriend, kids, job, material things, your Instagram followers, your likes on social media etc.
So ask yourself what are you motivated by when it comes to Love?
What are your thoughts about Love?
Did you know when we die, everything will be measured by what we did for Christ, nothing else? It's true.
Today, I ask you to pray and seek the heart of God in your life. God's word says each of us have to work out our own Salvation. When you stand before God, it will only be you giving an account for your life. Every word, everything you did. Make sure that nothing ever like ever comes between your relationship with The Lord.
Let's make everything we do be motivated by the Love we have for Jesus.
Let's focus everything we do on eternity.
I Love you guys so much! I really do.
And God Loves you more. Like BIG Love.
Make Him proud in Jesus Name.
I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made: your works are wonderful.
I know that full well.
