What does God want from you?

What does he most want you to do?

Most people would answer something about morality. Or living right .Or working hard. Or doing good stuff.

Actually, none of these answers are correct (remember--I used the word "most")!

What God wants most for you to do is love him!

A teacher of God's law once asked Jesus, "Of all the commandments, which is the most important?"  Jesus answered, "Love the Lord with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength" (Mark 12:30).

From Genesis to the end of Revelation, God expressed his greatest desire: "I will be their God, and they will be my people."  This should be read in the same way we say, "She's my wife. That's my son. Those are my kids." Or, "That's my Dad."

God loves taking pride in us, and wants us to take pride in knowing Him. "That's my Dad. My heavenly Father."

Sometimes we major in the minors. When I tried to "be good" for God, I became a miserable, guilt-ridden wreck. But when I learned to LOVE God, everything slid into place. Not that I became perfect. I just let God fix me, instead of trying to change myself. And I was a whole lot happier.

Love God.

Come visit us and learn about him.

Learn about the Savior he sent to us, Jesus Christ.

Because he already loves you--and we want you around!
