Confession, Conduct, and Congruence

We confess that we are Christians.  We confess our allegiance to the King of the universe.  We say that we follow Him and that we want to be like Him.  But our conduct does not match our confession and we rarely find congruence between the two.

Jesus said that we are to love God with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength but it seems like we haven’t quite figured out what that means just yet.  Or maybe we have figured it out; maybe we know exactly what we are supposed to do but we allow ourselves to make excuses because we really don’t want to go to that level.

Are you giving God 100 percent?  Does your heart long to be just like Him?  Are you willing to spend every ounce of your strength in his service?  Does your soul cry out to the Creator?  Is your mind filled with His thoughts?

Maybe if we strived to be more like the Master, others would do the same.  Maybe if our conduct matched our confession, His blessings would match His promises.

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength” Mark 12:30
