I LOVE you fervently and devotedly, O Lord, my Strength
Being a follower of Christ is so much more than just attending church. The Bible says to love the Lord with all our heart, mind, soul and strength. (Mark 12:30) When we are in love with someone, we express to them by our actions and words “I love you” on a daily basis. As we begin to establish our relationship with God, eventually we should reach this place where “I love you” is a daily expression to Him in thought, words and actions.
Whenever we fall in love with someone we must first spend time with them, getting to know them, it works the same way with the Lord. Spending time with the Lord means that we talk to Him regularly, we read the Bible often and we do the things that God likes to do as well as include Him in things we like to do. Take time to sincerely tell God, I love you, He deserves to receive our expressions of love, and He also requires it.
