Mark 12:29-31 (KJV)
29 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
If doing God's will seems hard or burdensome than check yourself. How is your relationship with the Lord?
Daily Prayer:Lord, I pray that people in the faith will all build a relationship with You. May they begin to put You first in their lives. Therefore, doing Your will, will no longer be a burden. It will no longer be a chore to serve You or our fellow men and women. With You in our lives and directing our paths, we have the strength to serve You. There is power in Your Name. Therefore, we are lifted up. It is only when we put down our trust in You that things start to fall apart. We begin to doubt things and feel burdened by doing Your will. I've seen it Lord, many people proclaim to know You but when asked to do service, often time they do not respond in favor of it, or for some that do, you can soon see that a few of them feel burdened. I know that there are many people that have become content with their own lives and do not wish to do new things. These feelings, Lord, are very detrimental to You and Your Kingdom. It really saddens me to see people so far off from serving You and doing Your will. May there be a revival in their hearts today. Spark something inside of them, that they may discover You in a new way. May a true change occur and their desires to get out there and do Your will become a reality. I know this can happen. I trust in You, God. I love You. Amen.
