I just posted a verse a few minutes ago, (Mark 12:30) about loving the Lord God with all our heart, soul and strength. I turn around and received this one from one of my other apps on my phone. In the commentary that came with it you will notice the same thing was said! So, we need to ask the Holy Spirit that searches all things to search our hearts and to show us any place that we are lacking and guide us in a way to repentance and correction.
The Lord says:“These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me is based on merely human rules they have been taught.
God desires your heart. At some point in your life, there must be a moment when you encounter God for yourself. This does not dismantle or take away anything you have been taught, unless what you have been taught is a lie…or some empty shadow of the truth. God knows your heart, and desires for your heart to choose Him. Our worship of God must be driven by more than “man-made ritual” (NET) and “the commandment of men” (NKJV). Do not settle for going through the motions with God. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength.
