The Lord’s greatest commands are to love Him with all our hearts, minds, souls, and strength and to love one another. And Jesus tells us if we want to come after Him, we need to deny self, take up our crosses, and follow Him. God also tells us in the Bible He is looking for people to worship Him in spirit and in truth. He also makes clear He is to be our first love. And throughout the entire Bible He makes clear what a TOTALLY DEVOTED follower is.
In a nutshell, TOTALLY DEVOTED FOLLOWERS of Jesus are to desire above all else to love, praise, honor, fear, revere, serve, pray to, seek, worship, adore, obey, live for, spend time alone with, learn from and learn of in the Bible and live according to His ways as He teaches us in it, bear fruit for, and glorify the Lord with every ounce of our hearts. We are to be filled with and be led by His Holy Spirit who lives inside His followers!
Jesus warns us He will vomit out lukewarm believers in Him. Let us be His TOTALLY DEVOTED followers!
The Lord and the Bible and His ways and His will for our lives are to be number one in our hearts & lives. We are to be TOTALLY DEVOTED to Him. Oh, may it be so!
I invite you to reach out to me if you are led for encouragement in being and remaining a TOTALLY DEVOTED follower of Jesus at 843-338-2219 or lara@GoodNews.love.
“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. And the second, like it, is this: ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”” Mark 12:30-31 NKJV
“And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.” Luke 9:23 KJV
“But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”” John 4:23-24 NKJV
“”I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars; and you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for My name’s sake and have not become weary. Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent.” Revelation 2:2-5 NKJV
“So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.” Revelation 3:16 NKJV
