You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. -‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭6:5‬ ‭(NKJV)

I’ve always been a man of extremes, going all in regarding whatever interest or pursuit drew my attention. But, eventually, I’d burn out or lose interest…till I accepted Jesus. And He told me, “Pursue Me.” And I found a pursuit that could never exhaust or bore me…a pursuit that would always go deeper than I ever could.

I can say that the difference in pursuing the Lord versus anything else–and not having the Lord in your life–is that the Lord renews and replenishes you. Daily, nightly, constantly…all you need to do is keep pursuing Him. It’s when you don’t that you struggle and dry up. Return to His living water any time to be refreshed and renewed.

And because He can go deeper than you, and because Jesus gave every ounce of His being for not just my sins and salvation, but yours, and the world’s, we can give every ounce of our being in living, walking worship of Him.

Let’s go to His waters. Let’s kneel at the feet of the Master. Let’s rise and soar, powered by the love and grace and courage and faith only He can give us, and let the world know what “Hallelujah!” is all about.
