If anyone does not love the Lord, that person is cursed. —I Corinthians 16:22

This is a very strong statement, but of course it is true. The greatest command is to “love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind” (Matthew 22:37). Obedience to His commands shows our love for Him (John 14:21). The person who loves is born of God and is exhibiting God’s character (I John 4:7-8).

Those who do not love the Lord love other things. They have a god of their own making and have gone aside to follow Satan whether they realized it or not. They are ensnared by the devil, imprisoned by him to do his will. The end result of that life is a curse and eternal destruction (Matthew 25:46; Revelation 20:15).

Dear Father, as I go through today, may I exhibit Your love to those around me. May I do so in the authority of Jesus and by the power of the Holy Spirit. May it be so!
