What Came First?

Did I love God first?

Or did he love me first?

God’s Word is very clear that he loved me first.  When I was a tiny newly-fertilized egg inside of mother, God knew me and loved me. 

As I read the words Moses said to the Israelites in one of his last addresses to them before his death, I am challenged to evaluate how well I love God.

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and will all your soul and with all your strength.”

What would it feel like if I loved God with all my heart?  What do I need to change so I can love God with all my soul?  What would my life be like if I loved God with all my strength?

How can I ignore the distractions of this world and the strong desire to do what I want to do so I can love God first?

I am God’s child and he is my Perfect Father.  I know he wants me to love him more and love him better than I do now.  As long as I seek him first, he will show me the way.

I’m following you, Abba Father.  Thank you.
