We can be certain that it is quite impossible to worship God without loving Him. Scripture and reason agree to declare this. And God is never satisfied with anything less than all. This may not at first be possible, but the inward operations of the Holy Spirit will enable us in His time to offer Him our poured-out fullness of love!

The apostle James

Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God. (James 1:19-20 ESV)

The apostle Paul

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends! (1 Cor. 13:4-8 ESV)

Jesus, our Savior and Lord, King of kings and Lord of lords

This is My commandment, that you love one another just as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends. You are My friends if you do what I command you. (John 15:12-14 NASB)

Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. For their sakes I sanctify myself, that they themselves also may be sanctified in truth (John 17:17-19 NASB)

The desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do. (Gal. 5:17 ESV)

Oswald Chambers

If in a prayer meeting God has shown you something to do, don't say - "I'll do it;" do it! Take yourself by the scruff of the neck and shake off your incarnate laziness. Laziness is always seen in cravings for the high hour; we talk about working up to a time on the mount. We have to learn to live in the grey day according to what we saw on the mount.

Our trials are great opportunities. Too often we look on them as great obstacles. It would be a heaven of rest if each of us would recognize every difficult situation as one of God's chosen ways of proving to us His love and power.

Traditional Prayer: 'Teach us, good Lord, to serve Thee more faithfully; to give and not to count the cost; to fight and not to heed the wounds; to toil and not to seek for rest; to labour and not to ask for any reward, save that of knowing that we do Thy will, O Lord our God.'

Philip Yancey said, "There is nothing we can do to make God love us more, There is nothing we can do to make God love us less." (ed: Isn't it wonderful to know this truth? God loves us with an everlasting love! Relax in His love today!)

Watchman Nee

In order to serve God, we have to present our entire bodies to Him. From this day forward, our ears will listen for the Lord, our hands will work for the Lord, and our feet will run for the Lord.

James Long

God understands, better than we can imagine, our feelings of panic in the face of suffering. God understands doubt; His choice servants have experienced it. God understands questions that would drive us to plead with Him to change life's agenda; His own Son voiced such a question.

An insight from your study of the Bible will not make a difference in your life until you take it personally. Bible knowledge alone is insufficient. For a changed life, you must also think, pray, and plan to put it into practice. Application is the process of carrying the principles and timeless truths of the Bible back to where you live.

Wisdom is looking at life from God's point of view. When we employ wisdom we are viewing life as God sees it. That's why it's so valuable to think God's thoughts. You look at difficulties and tests as God looks at them.
