The One I Claim To Love

I do love Him, at least I thought I did.  Until this list…I feel like it has left me pretty much undone.  If you really want it to sink in, read it out loud, then read it again.

Now let me ask you, do you love Him?  

I’ll be honest, it has been so long since I have taken a long hard look into the commandments of Jesus that I had forgotten many of them.  It’s as if they existed in the background, when they should have been in the forefront.

Most often I’m looking into God’s Word seeking out what He has for me, not something  I can do for Him or those around me.  Most times I come to God’s Word taking, not giving.

This list has got me to wondering… 

When we live His commands, will we really start living?   

When we live His commands, will we really know the abundant life? 

When we live His commands, will we we really start seeing? 

When we live His commands, will we really start knowing? 

When we live His commands, will we really start loving?
