On total sacrifice – obligation or opportunity?


Pastor David Platt’s message on radical sacrifice hits home.  When he makes the comparison to marriage and says that if we showed love for our spouses only because a book told us to we’d not be in a very good relationship, he points out how most of us think about God.  The Bible says to love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, so sometimes we struggle to do just that – because we were told to do so.  But why would we need to be told to love God?  After all He’s done and for all He is, how could we respond to Him in any way but love?  I’d love to know your thoughts on this video.  Comment below.
