CONTAINERS

Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’

This is the first and greatest commandment. 

Matthew 22:37- 38 NLT

Our world is compartmentalised and we often divide our lives into portions, neatly packaging them away in separate “containers”…work, family, friends…church…faith even our own thoughts… are often viewed as areas of life that are entirely unrelated to God.

This is not the type of relationship God has called us to experience through Christ!

God wants a full access.

Consider how well you could love your spouse, your children and your friends if they allowed you full access to who they are. The good and the bad.

Complete vulnerability – True transparency.

This is the same kind of transparency God is calling us for. An intimate relationship with God who created and love you with His entire self.

He wants ALL of you!

He isn’t surprised by your faults, mistakes and flaws.

Christ has called me and you to love Him wholeheartedly meaning – even with all our flaws and mistakes He wants us to love Him with our entire body, mind, and soul.

How? You can start by throwing away the “containers” you have created today and ask Jesus to have Lordship over every single aspect of your life.

MEDITATION

 Transparency is key in any relationship, the more you let go, the more your love deepens. You can be transparent with God too!

God loves you like crazy, withholding nothing back -not even His Son – JESUS!
