Do You Love God Selflessly and Strongly?

“Blessed are those who keep His testimonies, who seek Him with the whole heart!”

Psalm 119:2

Ponder This

Deuteronomy 6:5 says, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.” Your soul is yourself. The whole self, the total self, needs to be given over to God. There should be no area in your life that is off limits to God. How are you going to teach your children there is one Lord? They are to see in you that one love. They are to see in you a sincere love and a selfless love for our Lord.

Do you know how I can measure any person pretty well? I only need to see two things. I’m talking about your calendar and your bank account. Where are you putting your time? Where are you putting your money? You’re to love God selflessly.

There is also to be a strong love. You’re to love God with all your might—every inch, every ounce, and every nerve. He’s not just talking here about physical strength. He’s talking about whatever strength you have: emotional strength, financial strength, intellectual strength. Love Him selflessly. Love Him strongly.

  • Which one do you struggle with more: loving God selflessly or strongly?
  • What areas have you made “off limits” to God?

Practice This

Pray about what areas you consider off limits to God and surrender those things to Him.
