|Consistency in Christ|
Mark 12:28-34 (RSV)
Can anyone accuse us of being a one-day-a-week Christian? One who appears to love God and neighbor on church day but not so much during the rest of the week? There are some Christians who seem to believe, at least according to their actions, that going to church, paying tithes and offerings, and being a nice person is enough to have a relationship with Christ. But in general, they do things their own way the rest of the week and serve the Lord only when it is convenient for them.
Loving God with all our hearts and our neighbors as ourselves is a seven-day-a-week, 24-hour-a-day activity. It is not just for the day one goes to church or Bible study, or whenever it is convenient. It is a consistent pattern of living. It is something as Christians we are committed to live all the time. This is worth far more than how often we attend church, how much money we give to the church, or how many good deeds we may do for others in the course of any given week.
We belong completely to Christ, and He wants us to love and serve Him with our whole hearts. May we make this our aim every day in our walk with Christ.
