About a week ago, I was talking with a most beloved cousin about Bible study and about loving God with a whole heart. One shared thought led to another, and we soon decided that we would study together.
“We love but not always with our wholeness.” – L.K. Neither
The more we talked, the more our study began to assume a more defined shape. In the end, we elected to theme our study, Loving God with Our Wholeness. Our mission became one of finding out what that really meant and what it truly looked like in our lives.
Today, my sincere intent is to share with you some of the discoveries the Holy Spirit led me to make…so far.
– Loving God with our wholeness is not about anything we can do on our own.
– Loving God with our wholeness comes from the One that lives around us, as well as inside of us.
– Loving God with our wholeness involves releasing the fullness of self, which looks like the pouring out of our person before God.
– Loving God with our wholeness causes us to forget about ourselves and who we think we are.
– Loving God with our wholeness is about a life consumed with bringing God glory and that is focused on worshipping Him. (Study the life and psalms of David.)
“Loving God with our wholeness means we will live doing His whole will; it means we will do things that please Him and not ourselves.” – Eva Kim
