Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 06/21/15

This week’s scripture is from Deuteronomy:

Jesus is Risen“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.”  (Deut. 6:5)

We know that God’s love is perfect, for God is love, and we know that our love is not perfect and we often struggle to love, especially that which is not lovely. We even struggle at times to love God with all our being for to bring our all to bear often seems beyond our ability.

Yet the Lord does not hold this against us, for He knows that we are but dust and that our days are like the flowers of the field, but He who first loved us calls us to Himself and bids us to love Him as Father and Lord. He is a patient and loving Father, and He wants us to love Him as He loves us, with all He is, and with all He has given us in Christ Jesus.

May the Lord bless you to love Him with all you are.
