For the Love of God

I have loved you just as the Father has loved Me. 
You must go on living in My love... 
You are My friends if you do what I tell you to do.
John 15
The love of God has to be my motivation for all I do.
I can be talked out of every other reason.
"The question is not whether you have, 
or have not, done a thing that fell into harmony
with the will of God--
but did you do it, or not do it, 
as a conscious choice because you heard
His voice and you chose to respond?"
George MacDonald
I realize that a sense of duty is better than disobedience.
But, bottom line is I want my love for Him to be 
the source of everything I do.
I don't want my life to haphazardly line up with His will.
I want it to be a conscious decision to hear Him and obey Him
because I love Him.
Lord, I give You my heart and my will today.
I pray for ears that hear Your voice,
no matter how still You are speaking to me.
I can't be talked out of doing 
anything that I am doing if it is because You told me.
Increase my love Lord
that I may stand in complete obedience
as Your friend.
