God’s love for us is nothing less than phenomenal and total, and there should be no doubt in our minds as to His commitment to us. The Lord goes so far as to establish a covenant with the Children of Israel at Mount Sinai and with us at the Cross of Calvary as an expression of His absolute commitment to us. We must find a way and take time as we go about the day’s business to express our commitment to Him. We should offer God our worship, glory and praise throughout the day to let Him know we love and appreciate all that He has done for us.
When asked how we show God that we love Him, we should have two responses: we should love fully the God who first loved us with all of our heart, mind, strength and spirit. And, we are to love our family and neighbors as God loves us, we must leave no doubts in their minds as to the totality of our love for them. Communicate your love to them in very specific terms, do not be afraid to say “I Love You” it does not hurt when you mean it. For His unconditional love, praise the Lord with this Psalm:
Seven times a day do I praise thee because of thy righteous judgements” (Psalms 119:164). When we consider the love, kindness and mercy that God the Father has shown to us collectively and the miracles and blessings He has bestowed upon us individually, somehow seven times does not seem to be enough. Take time out of your busy schedule today and give God His deserved glory and praise. I am committing to at least seven times today, will you join me?
“Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is well pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen”. (Hebrews 13:20-21).
