WITH EVERYTHING WE HAVE


Imagine an average group of people, some Christians
and some not, watching a video of people in a stadium
cheering, waving, clapping, shouting, and jumping up
and down. There is no sound with the video. When this
group of people are told this is a crowd at a football
game and their team just scored a touchdown, they will
most likely comment that it must have been a very good
play or the game was very exciting. If the group was told
it was a crowd of Christians at a rally to win souls to
Christ, there would probably be comments stating that
these people are religious fanatics or going overboard
with their emotions. If a star athlete deserves an
excited, demonstrative crowd, how much more does
the Lord Jesus Christ deserve our excited,
demonstrative actions for saving us and giving us
eternal life?


Heavenly Father, help us to never be ashamed to show
our full excitement and joy at the wonderful gift of
eternal life you gave us at the most costly price ever
known. Give us boldness to show our love to you with
everything we have. In Jesus' name. Amen.


Read Deuteronomy 6:5


"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all
your soul and with all your strength." (NIV)


"And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine
heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might."
 (KJV)

Amen. Jesus warns us that if we deny Him before men that He will deny us before our Heavenly Father. Let us openly and publicly praise and lift up our Lord and Savior. Blessings. Lloyd
