Deuteronomy 5:1-6:25

Obey God’s commands; listen, be careful to do; walk straight; don’t veer off; deeply respect, etc., words and phrases found all throughout today’s reading. Do you think God is trying to tell us something?

Jesus speaking in the 14th chapter of John states:

If you [really] love Me, you will keep (obey) My commands. (John 14:15 AMP)

We look at “love” as an emotion, and confuse it with mercy, though mercy flows from love. God says love is a verb and is a “doing.” We determine if someone loves us by what they do for us; God determines love for Him by obedience to His Word. Is there anyway we can reconcile what we call love to God’s definition? God is immutable so He can’t change, it is against His nature. We have to change our understanding of what love is to fit into God’s standard. Loving God His way, which is the only way that counts, brings BIG benefits for us,

And the Lord commanded us to do all these statutes, to [reverently] fear the Lord our God for our good always, that He might preserve us alive, as it is this day. And it will be accounted as righteousness (conformity to God's will in word, thought, and action) for us if we are watchful to do all this commandment before the Lord our God, as He has commanded us. (Deuteronomy 6:24-25 AMP)

Speaking on the topic of love. My son recently asks me what does love mean? I was taken aback..I've always heard that love is not something you were born with, its more than a feeling..or emotion..it is something you "do" on purpose..like in the Bible with Jesus..He loved us in spite of, not because of..I couldn't describe it any other way but tell my son..that we have to on purpose decide to love something, someone..it's what we learn and are created to do..Love the Lord Your God with all your heart, mind, soul and strength..Love Your neighbor as yourself..Luke 10:27, Deut 6:5..its just that easy..

Ministries and outreach..I give to Holt International ministries and have sponsored two or three kids by now..thirty a month I believe is what it usually asks to sponsor and it is a great ministry to kids who without this funding would not have food, clothes, education..I truly believe us as the body of Christ and his believers should be reaching out to less fortunate..As my pastor said one time in reference of the woman with the "blood" issue who touched the hem of Jesus' garment to be healed..We need to be the one with the solution instead of the one with the problem..basically..others should be coming to us like the did Jesus if we are His true disciples to get relief..We should have what the World wants and is looking for and that is Jesus All Over Us All The Time..

Be Blessed~~DeeDee
