Day 41 - 45



Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter.

“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.” (Ecclesiastes 12:13)

“By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.” (1 John 5:2)

Jesus answered, “The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: 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. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:29-31)

“But if any man love God, the same is known of him.” (1 Corinthians 8:3)

“Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.” (Psalms 91:14-16)

“Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. We love him, because he first loved us.” (1 John 4:15-19)


“My Love” There is only one, the lover of our souls.  Our confidence in His love, assures us we are free from judgment. Our love for Him insures our obedience with confidence. We now do freely that which we have been empowered to do through Your affection. Your devotion has saved us from what we could never do on our own. It is no longer a dreadful act of trying to be good enough to be with You, our God. Now we obey to be like the One who loves us completely.  Submission has become the highest expression of our passion. It is the very mountaintop of our ecstasy. To truly be like You, in every thought and action is our obedience. We are now never alone as we do all things with You, our Father. Step for step, heartbeat for heartbeat, we breathe our breath as one. The unison of movement provokes this dance of intimacy. We submit to Your advances and regard Your tender caresses.  Closer than two lovers as one flesh, we have become one spirit! Submissively dominated by Your Love…
