It takes determination to follow Jesus!
This is one of my favorite passages in the Bible. Read this a couple times today.
4 “Listen, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord alone.[a] 5 And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. 6 And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. 7 Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up. 8 Tie them to your hands and wear them on your forehead as reminders. 9 Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. –Deuteronomy 6:4-9
I’ll be selling headbands with this verse on them! Ha! Not really. But maybe you need to write this down on a piece of paper and keep it in your pocket. Write it on the top of your to do list. Memorize this passage. Get a tattoo. Do something to keep this passage on your heart all the time. When Jesus was asked to sum up the Old Testament this is the passage He shared! Be determined to follow Jesus!
