LOVE THE LORD & YOU WILL LOVE WHAT IS HIS

LOVE THE LORD & YOU WILL LOVE WHAT IS HIS

"A girl who received a book from a young man, read it and said, "What a tiresome book!" The young man said, "Did you notice who wrote it?" She looked at the front page and saw that the love of her life was the author. She began to read it again, and at the end she said, "I never read a greater book." What made the difference? Her relationship to the writer. Look at God. Is He good or evil? It all depends on whether you are single in heart or evil in heart. If you look at Jesus, you may see Him either as a deceiver or as a Savior. What makes the difference? Your attitude, your eye."  Bible Illustrations - Bible Illustrations – Illustrations of Bible Truths.

You and I, at times in our lives or even right now, have not enjoyed the things of God. Particularly, His Book, His Church, His Will & Ways, and His People have all at times been a bore or even an annoyance. The problem we have is that we often do not love God like we should or we do not have the right relationship we should with Him. in order to enjoy the Bible and have the right attitude towards godly things and towards life we are going to have to get to know the Author and Creator – the Lord God of heaven.  He is the designer, creator, and sustainer of all.   He is the one that gives us all things.  Fall in love with Him, and you will fall in love with His Book, you will fall in love with His church, you will fall in love with His people and you will fall in love with His service.
