Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.

- Mark 12:30

Why would God tell us to love Him with all our heart, mind and strength when He knows that it is an impossible task for us?

Try as we may, our sinful natures and inadequacies cause us to fail God.

That is why we so desperately need Jesus! God knows our limitations.

He knows when we stumble and fall. He knows when we are completely defeated and when the smallest tear drops.

So, if God knows we are sinful and failing, why would He tell us to love Him with everything we have?

He wants a relationship with us and He wants us to acknowledge our need for a Savior.

With the forgiveness of sin through Christ and the Holy Spirit living within us, we know that “all things are possible for one who believes.” (Mark 9:23)

As we draw close to Him, He draws close to us and enables us to succeed against sin because of His power in us.

Is there an area of your life that God is asking you to surrender to Him today? Ask Him to show you where you can love Him more completely.  

With Love,
Paper Sunday

Good Morning! I love the new format for the devotional but…. It’s very distracting to have your product ad pop up as I’m trying to be present in the message 😔. Can you please move you ad pop up maybe prior to the message or after?
