Truly Loving God

"And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment.... He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also." (Mark 12:30; John 12:24-25 NKJV) If you truly love the Lord with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength you will not be truly attached to the things of this world. Instead, you will be ready and willing to let go of all that you have, paying more attention to your relationship with God, and follow Him. You will "lose your life" here, to have an eternal life with God. Our time on earth is only temporary anyway, so "choose whom this day you will serve." Love, Beau
