Why Don't We Really Love God?


WHY DON'T WE REALLY LOVE GOD?

This was a question that was posed to us in class this morning. It is an intense question that has to be answered by all of us.

Why don't we love God?
It is because we do not trust God.

Why then, do we not trust God?
When it comes down to it, it is because we do not know God.

We can not trust a person that we do not know. We can not trust a person that we have not allowed the chance to prove themselves faithful in our lives.

Why don't we allow Him to prove Himself then?
It is because we have believed a LIE--quite possibly the biggest lie ever told. We believe that if we did everything God told us to do, all the time, we would NOT be happy.

This is simply not true. God is the maker of all good things. Goodness comes from God alone.

What then do we do?

We get to know God, we put our trust in Him, and when we see that He is faithful every time so that we may truly love Him with everything we have and are.
