I Samuel 12:24 "Only fear the Lord, and serve him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great things he hath done for you."
This verse has been on my heart the past couple of days. I was asking myself "Do I REALLY fear (have reverence for) the Lord?" If I do then I'll live for Him. "Do I serve Him in truth?" If I do then what I do to serve Him won't contradict His Word. "Do I serve Him with all my heart?" If I do then I will do ALL things as unto Him. The verse says "consider how great things he hath done for you." If we really consider (to take into account) what He has done for us it should motivate us to love Him with all our heart and to serve Him in truth as not to bring shame and reproach on His name.
Friend...if all He ever did for you was die for you so that you could have eternal life then that should be enough. But think about and meditate on all the other things (countless things) that He has done for you. He did so much to protect us till we got saved and then has blessed our lives abundantly since being saved.
If this post does nothing more than to get you to remember what all Christ as done for you then this post has accomplished what it was intended to do. But let it really sink into your heart and mind and let it motivate you to love Him more and to serve Him with the right motive and attitude.
