If someone asks if we love God, most of us would likely answer with a big “YES.” Have you ever come to ask yourself if your love for God is enough? Have you ever measured your love for God against his love for you? A post I read this morning entitled, “Passionate for my REDEEMER!” lead me to ask myself these questions.
When I recall God’s acts of love for me, I can’t help but feel ashamed of how little I can offer to reciprocate it. I mean, no matter how much I try I will never be able to love God as much as he does me. There is certainly no way I can equal the intensity and the depth of God’s caring for me. The good thing is God does not need us to do that. All God wants is that we love him with everything that we are. As is said in Luke 10:27, “Love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind.”
