What We Need Is Here

What We Need Is Here

The command of God sounds comprehensive because it is: “with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind.” But that does not make it "too hard" or "too far away.” We must remember that “your” really means your. We often listen as if Scripture is speaking to a different person, an ideal person I should be someday. According to Deuteronomy, the word of God is not "above and beyond.” It is here, “in your mouth and in your heart.” It requires the whole you, but not a different you.
