Do You?

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.
Mark 12:30

And the question is..

DO you??

After this mornings sermon at First Baptist of New Orleans
(or FBC NOLA as I like to call it)

I took a harder look at myself.
I know I love the Lord with all my soul and I'd say with all my heart.

But... I am failing him with the all my strength part.

Are you the type of Christian who says to themselves,

"Well I'm saved, I'm going to heaven, I believe in him. But I don't really need to go to church or live the Christian lifestyle, I can just do what I want, cause I know God will just forgive me anyways."

There are SOOO many Christians who follow the above statement,
and I admit I have been one of them.

I thought that since I was half way trying to do the right things then I was okay, cause he would just forgive me for the rest.

Sometimes we try to rationalize God's forgiveness, but honestly it really doesn't work that way.

I need to Love God with all my strength. That means with all my power I am to honor him. 

With Everything..

I know I will fail. But at least I can wholeheartedly  try and stop making excuses for myself before I even fail him in the first place.
