How To Love God

Saturday, June 10, 2017


How do you show someone love? Isn't love just something that comes naturally? You don't have to put any thought into it, it's all about how you feel, right? 

Yes, I guess love can be feeling, but it's so much more than just a feeling. When you love someone how do you show them that you love them? 

By serving them. By learning all you can about them so you know what pleases them. Spending time with that person and communicating well with them. 

So love is actually an action and the feeling comes with the action. With this in mind how can we love God? We can try to chase after the feeling of being loved by God but when days come when we don't feel the love we will be confused and find ourselves left alone and discontent with our life. 

As we purpose each day to meditate on God's word we are showing God love. When we spend time studying God's word we are spending time with God and we can learn about how we can please Him.  The beautiful thing is that as we do this, God will fill us with the love and joy we long for. But we must follow through with the actions and trust in God and He will supply the feeling. 

To love God is to love His word. 

It's truly a beautiful thing when we can learn to love God in this way. I want to be like the psalmist in psalm 119:97 when he cried out saying "Oh how I love your law, it is my meditation day and night."
