When the Bible says “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind”, it doesn’t mean “feel good and benevolent towards the Lord your God”; instead, it means “no matter what, no matter how, no matter when, be committed and devoted to serving and doing the will of the Lord your God”.
Our feelings and emotions are too unstable; they come and go just like that, no one can truly tame them.
What God wants from us is something lasting, real, and pure---our commitment towards Him, letting our “yes” to him be “yes” and our “no” be “no”.
You see, love is, and was never, and will never be, just a feeling; love will always be an action.
Why are we so afraid to commit ourselves to the Lord? Hasn’t He shown himself to be great and real and mighty? Hasn’t He shown faithfulness through the ages? Hasn’t He responded lovingly and mercifully to whomever that came to Him?
If you won’t take the leap of faith, and stay hugging yourself in your comfort zone, how then will you experience the abundance of life that Christ Jesus promises to give freely and willingly?
