05 Dec Ep 9 | Wholehearted Part 1
Summary: In Matthew 22:37-40 Jesus essentially tells us that if we keep the Great Commandment (to love God and love others) then every other command and every other thing that God has told us to obey in his word, will fall in line under it. It’s like two hooks and everything hangs on those two hooks: 1) Loving God and 2) Loving Others. In this episode we’ll focus on loving God first, remembering to love God wholeheartedly.
Today’s Challenge: Think through that equation again – all of those little scenarios I gave you. Jesus + _____ = my satisfaction? Success? Significance? Security? Take some time to really think and pray this through, and then ask the Lord to show you areas of your life where you are adding something to that “blank.” Confess it, repent, and then remember this: The God who made you and loves you knows what you would put in that blank… and he knows that blank will lead you in the other direction away from Him. But His goodness and mercy won’t let you stay headed in that direction – his relentless love is pursuing you to the end. So turn around, empty that “blank”, and let him catch you as you fall into His arms of love.
