It’s the question that many ask… sometimes on a regular basis. What does God want from us?
And now, Israel, what does the LORD your God require of you? He requires only that you fear the LORD your God, and live in a way that pleases him, and love him and serve him with all your heart and soul. (Deuteronomy 10:12)
So, who says the Old Testament is hard to understand or is irrelevant to our lives today? Well, there are some parts but overall the message is as relevant today as it was thousands of years ago.
When it comes down to it, God is asking that we LOVE HIM. Many people think they have to get their life all straightened out or in order before they can become a Christian. But in reality, God isn’t asking all that much of us… except that we love him with all our heart.
When you align your heart towards God, you naturally change your life because you begin to love HIM, his WAYS and his WORK. Changing your life isn’t a requirement to love God, rather it is a result of your love for God.
