“So if you faithfully obey the commands I am giving you today—to love the LORD your God and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul— then I will send rain on your land in its season, both autumn and spring rains, so that you may gather in your grain, new wine and oil.” – Deuteronomy 11:13-14
If you’re obeying God, are you doing it out of fear or love? May I suggest you do it out of love?
First you need to accept that Jesus died for you. Because of this, you are saved. But, you need to accept Jesus wholeheartedly like the thief on the cross. He believed and therefore was saved.
This is the time when one can dutifully follow out of love and gratitude. If you follow Him out of love, God’s first blessing will be overflowing joy. When you’re joyful, the more you want to please Him.
How about it, dear friend. Are you willing to give it a try?
Glory to God.
