O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever!
- Deuteronomy 5:29
Every sin has a consequence. Every decision has an outcome. He longs for us to stay away from the evil clutches of sin and draw near to His presence.
Ask yourself these questions:
- Am I attentive to His call to draw near?
- Does my heart long for him?
- Do I strive to obey His commands at all times?
Today, make the decision to draw away from sin, honor God with your life, and obey His commandments.
"Obedience is love fulfilling every command. It is love expressing itself."
- E.M. Bounds
Oh Lord, empty my heart of all sinful desires and fill me with a longing for You. I submit myself to Your authority and give up my ways to obey You.
