What do the Scriptures teach us about who we are in Christ? God made us, and we are His creation. As we listen to Him, we will become fully alive as a human being.
The greatest commandment is to love the Lord our God with all our heart, all our soul, all our mind and all our strength. But it starts with our heart, with our will, with what we want, our dreams, our desires. As we listen to what God wants for us (and He only wants the best for us), we become fully alive in Christ. When our attention drifts and we are enticed by worldly thoughts, we descend into much less than God’s best. So let’s begin this series by praying each day for God to cause a purification of our heart.
