How much is too much?

Matthew 22:37 - Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

At the Xtreme Winter Conference in Gatlinburg, TN in 2009 I heard a speaker say something that has stuck with me ever since. He said, "We all know people who are constantly talking about God. They can't get enough of him. They will freely talk about God to the unbelievers and take it to those extremes that most people are too scared to. And most people look at them like they are absolutely crazy. Even a lot of other Christians will look at them and say they are taking it too far. But let me ask you this. Do you think when that person gets to heaven, Jesus is going to look at them and say, "Ya know, I'm glad you loved me, but you loved me a little too much."

ABSOLUTELY NOT! This is the radical love that we are supposed to have for God and his people. We are supposed to be showing people God'd love. In Matthew it says to love God with all your heart, soul and mind. We are supposed to love him with EVERYTHING we have.

1 Chronicles 16:34
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.

So how much is too much? My answer is this, it is NEVER enough. We could never repay him for what he has done for us. But what we can do everything in our power to make sure that he knows how much we love him because of what he done. 

This devotional was written from the heart of Ashley Pierce. I hope this has inspired you to go out of your way to show God how much you appreciate what he has done for you. You can do that by loving him with all you have and showing others that love!

  1. This is so true Ash! Ever since Pastor Anthony started Awakening Your Day I feel such a burden to get the Word of God out to the hurting and lost souls !!!! You can't love God enough! Spreading the love of Jesus is a command!!!!! The bible says it!!!!! Good job baby girl!!!

    1. Awakening Yiur Day has truly been a blessing in my life, Pammie!!!

  2. Awesome!! I can totally relate!!! At work I am surrounded by non-Christians and its like I can tell that I get on their nerves when I talk about God! But ya know what??? I DON'T CARE!!! He has done so much in my life that I can't help but talk about him all the time!!!!!

    1. I know, Maggi!!! Some people will completely shut down when they start hearing people talk about God!!! We have to pursue people with the same love God gives us!!! It's just harder with some people bc they don't want to hear it!!!
