This is one of our children’s favorite song. Reminding ourselves what is most important in life is crucial. Before we get distracted by the world happenings and life’s trials, we sing out the Word of God to remind ourselves to love Him always and pursue Him first.
Honestly, friends, what is most important to you today? No matter what we do, where our motivations or our pursuits may be, let’s remember what Jesus said here and what He’s asking us to do TODAY – “You shall love the Lord your God with ALL your heart, and with ALL your soul, and with ALL your mind.’ (Mathew 22:37) It is as simple as that.
God is not waiting for us to do something today to impress Him. He is looking for yielded lives who will engage in deep friendship with Him. He did not create us so that we may constantly showcase something to impress Him. He created us because He loves us and wants us to enjoy our relationship with Him. We are already the pride of His heart. Nothing else we can do to impress Him. We are His sons and daughters. We are the object of His love. He loves us. Period. Let’s love him everyday. Love Him like the way you first known Him. You can get as close to Him as you want to.
