Application For The Fighter Verse For April 15 and 16

Deuteronomy 6:4-5

Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.

I once read an atheist commentary that suggested that since it was impossible to obey these words, this verse was ridiculous. What kind of God was command us to do what we can’t do?

My answer is this:

The kind of God who would prescribe this kind of worship . . . well he is –

– A God who has very lofty goals for his created beings
– A God who really wants to be worshiped
– A God who will settle for nothing less than perfection
– A God who wants his children to always be stretching to be closer to him
– A God who wants his children to see their inability to do was is required of them and ask for help.
– A God who looks forward to a time when his worshipers will be able to fully live up to this kind of standard.

In any case, I am certain that you are not completely obeying this passage. Have you prayed for greater ability to love him with a little more of you heart and your soul and your might?
