Deuteronomy 8:1 tells us to obey God’s commandments. We do this by obeying God with…


By loving him more than any relationship, activity, achievement, or possession


By committing ourselves completely to him


By seeking to know him and his Word, so his principles and values form the foundation of all we think and do


By recognizing that our strengths, talents, and sexuality are given to us by God to be used for pleasure and fulfillment according to his rules, not ours


By deciding that all of the resources we have ultimately come from God, and that we are to be managers of them and not owners


By deciding to make service to God and man the main purpose of our life’s work

(With God’s help, what am I going to do differently today because He said it?)

Father God, I am convinced again today that there is nothing more important than reading Your Word and obeying it, for You alone are God , and it is You that will lead us out of our world of sin and into Your path of righteousness that leads to heaven and life eternally with You. Please help me to stay constant in Your Word, constant in obeying Your commands and constant in my witness to a lost and dying world. Thank You for all that You provide for me each day and all that You help me through in overcoming evil and living a life worthy of Your calling.
