'HOW DEEP IS YOUR LOVE?'


"My soul has kept Your testimonies: and I love them exceedingly" - Psalm 119:167
.
Love is a beautiful thing that is expressed amongst two or more people who are in a relationship. When it's mutual, it becomes a powerful force that produces joy, peace and harmony.
.
If I'm in love with you, I'd ensure that I keep your word and treasure them so much. Do you love God enough to keep His word? The Psalmist told us how much he loved God's word. You can't love God's word if you don't love Him.
.
What a man loves determines what he spends his time doing. Who a man loves determines who he obeys or serve. Those who love His testimonies are those who obey them.
.
If you love Him, you'll keep His commandments (John 14:15), you'll seek Him early before you rise to the business of the day (Prov. 8:17) and you're going to delight yourself in it day and night.
.
God has loved you first (John 3:16, Rom. 5:8) and it's expected of you to reciprocate by accepting His son, follow Him and seek to know the truth.
.
Who you love, you honor. It's quite unfortunate that many do not love God nor honor His word. How can you be in church and you're browsing, chatting, making or receiving calls? It shows disrespect because that cannot be done to an earthly king.
.
How can you love God and your body will become a temple of immoralities?
.
Love Him not just in words but in deed (1 John 3:18). Create time to talk to Him, learn at His feet on daily basis and obey Him.
.
The deeper your love for Him, the more of Him you know and manifest. Nobody loves God and He loves that becomes useless in life, they are always history makers.
.
What's your soul sold out to keep? God's word? Yours? Or the devil's?
