So, this question is on my heart, soul and mind. It has invaded my whole being. I am consumed by this very disturbing yet freeing question . . . what is it? Glad you asked . . .

"What does it mean to love God with all of your heart, with all of your soul, with all of your mind and with all of your strength? Then, what does it look like?"

Francois Fenelon from the late 1600's leads me to ask this, after he asked, "We attend church, we read the Bible, we avoid the biggies - is this wholehearted and passionate worship of God?"

Ouch, he's stepping on my toes!! So, I'm working through the interrogatives. How do I demonstrate my love for God? What does it look like? When do I do it? Why do I do it? As I examine myself, and am brutally honest with myself, I also sense a series of sermons developing on these topics. They, in part, will form the answers to my seeking.

If you were to honestly answer these questions, would God be impressed? Are you impressed? Can you be so honest?!
