Love The Lord And Be Faithful

Psalms 31:23–O love the Lord, all ye his saints: for the Lord preserves the faithful.

***********************************************************************

Love the Lord–”Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.  This is the first and great commandment” (Matthew 22:37-38).  Notice the emphasis on all in the previous verse; with all, with all, with all.  The first and foremost thing that we are responsible for in our life is to love the Lord our God with everything we have.  We are to long for Him and find pleasure in Him.

Be faithful–We are to keep the faith, to be loyal to God, to be reliable and dependable.  Our faithfulness issues from our love for God.  If we love Him we will not want to let Him down.  If we get too wrapped up in the affairs and problems of this world our faithfulness will begin to decrease.  We must watch the focus of our life.  To be faithful means to find time for Him.

The Lord will preserve you–If we love Him and are faithful to Him He will protect us.  God takes care of all who stay close to Him.
