Do We Really Love God?

You can enter God's Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose the easy way. If we love God we will choose His way.

God loves us all, but most people do not really love God. If we do love God we will obey his commandments.

Jesus has told us in the John 14:15; “If you love me, obey my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor, who will never leave you. He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognize him. But you know him, because he lives with you now and later will be in you. No, I will not abandon you as orphans—I will come to you. Soon the world will no longer see me, but you will see me. Since I live, you also will live. When I am raised to life again, you will know that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you. Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. And because they love me, my Father will love them. And I will love them and reveal myself to each of them.”

As we go about our daily lives, are we loving God in our thoughts words and actions? Or maybe we are just doing things our own way. fussing and fighting, drinking and smoking, watching trash on t.v. with not one concern about the world around us that’s lost and on a thrill ride straight to Hell? God can see in our hearts and mind. He knows what we really are about but He loves us any way. Do we love God? Do we love Him enough to obey His intructions and his commandments?

A daily inventory is one way to find out. Did you go to work with a positive attitude? did you do your job to the best of your ability? Did you treat your parents with honor and respect? have you shown love and caring to your brothers and sisters? What about others that have come across your path? Have they seen the Love of God sining forth from you? Have you taken time to talk with God today? Have your thanked him for his many blessings? Have you rested in his love for you? Have we accepted the work of the cross? Have we relied upon Gods great Love and salvation today? If we can say yes to these things we have loved God today and then when tomorrow comes we must practice loving Him again. Are we always going to be perfect? NO! But if we truely want to obey God, we will confess our sins to Him and He will be faithful and just to forgive us.
