Transcript

and He said to him YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND this is the great and foremost commandment the second is like it YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF on these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets Yeshua said that these two things sum up the entire Bible love God and love people the Lord gave me a little phrase sometime back love God bless people and you will make a difference a lot of people are busy trying to make a difference here’s what I learned if you’ll just love God with all your heart and you’ll make it your business to bless other people you will make a difference you won’t be able to help but make a difference it’s just powerful to consider what does it mean to really bless another person what does it mean to really love another person a very interesting thing that I heard a pastor say many many years ago is this his wife’s name was Linda and this pastor said I realized shortly after I got married that my wife loves God and that God wants to bless her it’s God’s intent to bless her and this husband said I realized that probably the primary way that God is going to bless my wife is through me her husband and he said once I understood that I determined in my heart I am going to make it my business every single day when I get up to bless my wife to see to it that anything she wants if it is physically possible within the realm of possibility for me I will get it for her I will do it for her I will make it my business to bless her with anything I possibly can and he said I just had this phrase I decided in my marriage what Linda wants Linda gets and when I heard that pastor say that I thought the same I had just gotten married not long before that and I thought about my wife Jan I thought she loves God with all her heart, she loves people and God wants to bless her I made this decision if it is physically possible for me to do it anything Jan wants Jan gets we have lived that way in our marriage for 38 years if Jan were here to talk to you I don’t know if she would say I’ve been all that successful at it but I want to tell you that is absolutely the determination of my heart what Jan wants, Jan gets if it is within the realm of possibility I will do it for her, why because I want to bless her I want to love her I want to allow God to flow His love through me to her I encourage you to think today who is your neighbor who has God called you to love sometimes it’s someone who’s not very lovable most of the time it’s someone who doesn’t deserve love grace means loving somebody that doesn’t really deserve to be loved I encourage you to consider who is it that God really would like me to bless today how about your own husband or wife if you’re married, or your children your boss at work, other co-workers who is it that God wants you to bless today let’s just pray and ask the Lord would you ask Him with me Father who is it in my life that is my neighbor that you want me to bless today who is it God that you want me to pour out blessing on would you just speak to me now just listen to Him and Father I just determine today I will bless that one that you brought to my mind especially today and Lord I pray that you would empower me to make it my business to bless my marriage partner to bless my family to bless those close to me with your love to honor those around me in the mighty name of Yeshua Ha Mashiach Amen
