Living the Risen Life-Deuteronomy 6:5

Living the Risen Life begins with our learning to Love the Lord.  We demonstrate our love to Him in obedience, in worship, and in perseverance through suffering.  Consider Deuteronomy 6:5.  It teaches us that loving the Lord has an enduring quality in three dimensions: heart, soul, and strength.

  • The heart’s desire of the one Living the Risen Life is to follow Jesus’ teaching in John 14:15 “If you love me, you will obey what I command.”
  • The soul yearns to serve Him and to worship Him only (Deuteronomy 13:4 It is the LORD your God you must follow, and him you must revere. Keep his commands and obey him; serve him and hold fast to him.)
  • And our strength is seen in perseverance through which we experience renewal in His presence. (Revelation 3:8 I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.)

Just as He said, our deeds, our obedience, and our perseverance make a difference! 

They reflect the heart, soul, and strength dimensions in which we Love the Lord!
