ALL or Nothing


     Some things in life are “all or nothing” propositions.  For example, you cannot be “a little bit married” or “a little bit pregnant”; it’s all or nothing.  Neither can you be “a little bit obedient”.  The greatest commandment is an all or nothing proposition: “you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength” (Mark 12:30).

     From God’s perspective, loving Him with anything less that all your heart, soul, mind, and strength is to hate Him.  If you are not completely with Him, you are against Him (Matthew 12:30).  He prefers hot or cold over lukewarm (Revelation 3:15-16).

     When it came to worshiping God, David exclaimed, “I will praise You with my whole heart” (Psalm 138:1). 

     Heartfelt worship is all or nothing.
