OneWalk: Love the Lord your God with all your heart 

PRAYER:Gracious God, you are love, indeed. You are self-giving, faithful, abiding, never-ending love. All praise be to you!

You have loved us in so many ways, dear Lord, our God, but most of all by giving us your Son, who showed us your love, and who, by love, gave his life on the cross. Your love became human in Jesus, for our sake. All praise be to you!

Forgive us, Lord, when we think we can make you love us more by our actions. Yes, we can please and honor you, but your love for us comes first and foremost. We love because you first loved us. All praise be to you!

Help us, Lord, to respond to your love by loving you. May we give our love to you through all that we are, even in our daily work. May our work this day be an expression of our love, our response to how much you love us. All praise be to you! Amen.

One Response to “OneWalk: Love the Lord your God with all your heart ”

  1. Matthew Perri Says:

    We need to listen to Jesus. Not the voice of a Pharisee……

    Poem – Looking forward (Rocky)

    Jesus never calls us out
    For what we used to be.
    His voice is so much greater
    Than paul the Pharisee.

    “You are Simon son of John”
    Said Jesus, without elaboration.
    No mention of a cloudy past
    No hint of condemnation.

    No accusation against the brothers
    No comments dark and obscure,
    Writing to the Church in Corinth
    “that is what some of you were.”

    Not the voice of the accuser,
    Boss Paul the Pharisee,
    Telling the redeemed people of God
    About what they used to be.

    Jesus never said right is wrong,
    He never said wrong is right.
    He came so we can turn from darkness
    And into His glorious light.

    “Neither do I condemn you” said Jesus,
    To a woman entrapped by dogs.
    The game the dogs play is the same today,
    Except now they do it on blogs.

    “Go, and sin no more” said Jesus,
    Don’t relive that history.
    Look forward, not back, don’t dwell on your past.
    “You will be called” Rocky.

    Looking forward – Chapter 2

    “I am he who searches hearts and minds”
    says the Risen Jesus Christ
    “Repent and do what you did at first”
    Don’t be lazy since He paid the price

    Yes, Jesus sees our sins today
    Don’t think that He is blind
    But the words of paul the Pharisee
    Will put you in a bind

    Jesus washed away your sins
    Don’t listen to paul the accuser
    paul abandoned the Church in Corinth
    And then paul became an abuser

    When you put your trust in Jesus
    Yes, your stains were white as snow
    You didn’t need to wear a Scarlet Letter
    Everywhere you go

    “I will repay each of you
    According to your deeds”
    This is Jesus speaking to The Church
    Not a business selling felt needs

    For “those who claim to be apostles”
    Jesus said they must be “tested”
    Priscilla, Aquila, and Apollos
    Persevered and were not bested

    They exposed the false teachings
    Of paul the Pharisee
    So the Church in Ephesus rejected paul
    And had a chance to be free
