|Deuteronomy 30:19-20 |
19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live.
20 That you may love the LORD your God, and that you may obey his voice, and that you may cleave to him:3 for he is your life, and the length of your days; that you may dwell in the land which the LORD swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them."
3 Notice! That you may love the LORD your God, and that you may obey his voice, and that you may cleave to him. This is the goal: we must rely totally on him, and obey his voice, to receive the circumcision of the heart, so we can love him with all our heart and soul, that we may live. What is the evidence of your love for God? To obey his voice as Jesus told us: "If anyone loves me, he will obey my spoken words; and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him; John 14:23. [their kingdom is their home in the heart of those who obey] .
