MORNINGTIME 2896
 
And it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, TO LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND TO SERVE HIM with all your heart and with all your soul, Deuteronomy 11:13. For if ye shall diligently keep all these commandments which I command you, to do them, TO LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD, TO WALK in all his ways, AND TO CLEAVE UNTO HIM; Deuteronomy 11:22. YE SHALL WALK after the Lord your God, AND FEAR him, AND KEEP his commandments, AND OBEY his voice, AND ye shall SERVE him, AND CLEAVE UNTO HIM.  Deuteronomy 13:4.  I exhort therefore, that, FIRST OF ALL, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, BE MADE FOR ALL MEN; 1 Timothy 2:1. Are you starting to get the picture, that to Love The Lord, FIRST, is to Obey ALL His Commandments, which all boil down to, Love God, and Love your fellow man? If you DO what the Lord asks, in the Order in which He asks, this is, LOVING THE LORD, AND LOVING  YOUR FELLOW MAN. And on top of all this, "And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, WHOM GOD HATH GIVEN TO THEM THAT OBEY HIM". Acts 5:32. There is no Greater Love than to Obey The One Who Loves you. No matter what His Commandments are, TO OBEY HIM, IS TO LOVE HIM. And if your Heart is to Obey Him, then the Lord will give you His Holy Spirit TO HELP YOU OBEY HIM. To Love and Obey the Lord, is the toughest Job out there, but to purposefully Disobey the Lord will be a whole lot harder. To Love Christ, is to Grow in Christ, is to Obey Christ, is to Love Christ, and the cycle just keeps on Growing. Those who live to purposefully disobey Christ, have no Christ and live unto self. Yes, the grassy front yard "church", is full of people who daily choose to disobey The One who Died for them. Christ came to bring Life, and Life more Abundantly, and to disobey Life, is to walk in Death, and to choose to continually  walk in death, IS NO PLACE TO, BE BLESSED.
