(Fear, truth and testimony) or (love)
1 Samuel 12:24 - Only fear the LORD, and serve him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great things he hath done for you.
The piece of advice Samuel gave the people stands even today.
Fear the Lord
Serve Him in truth with all your heart
Remember the great things He has done for you
These points may be from the Old Testament but they still form the foundation of the New Testament. For these add to our relationship called LOVE with the Lord.
If we do not acknowledge who God is and give Him the due reverence we will not be able to love Him.
If we lie or try to fool God or ourselves about the evil we do against God, can we call that love?
If we forget every time the things that the Lord has done for us, can we call our relation with the Lord based on love?
If we really love the Lord these three are some of the bare necessary requirement for our relationship with Him.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Father God, You are my God, my creator. You made me, gave life unto me and with your love protect and prosper me. Lord in my foolishness I tried to ignore You, lie to You and forget all the great things You have done for me. Father I ask your forgiveness for my foolishness. I love You and want to have a close relationship with You. Speak to me Lord and help me Holy Spirit to come to reality with the truth...
I ask this in Jesus' Name, Amen.
