You go church every week but yet so far from God. You look put together on the outside but inside you are a mess. You long for God to feel real to you. “There’s got to be more.”
You’ve really got two options: you can keep searching to fill these longings on your own, or you can look to the One who gave you those longings in the first place.
Saying we love God is easy when it doesn’t cost us anything more than weekly attendance at a church service. But the real test of our love for God is how we treat the people right in front of us-our family members, fellow believers, and even enemies. We cannot truly love God while neglecting to love those we are created in his image.
What do your activities this week suggest about what you think will satisfy you?
“We love him, because he first loved us.”
1 John 4:19 KJV
