Scripture textDeuteronomy 6:5 – “5And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.”

            There are some things that some people put all their heart, soul, and might into besides God. Some examples are sports, music, TV, video games, vehicles, computers, people, jobs, etc. What I mean by this is when someone goes to a ball game or a music concert; they put all of their emotion into it. They do not care what anybody else around them thinks or what anybody else is doing; they are going to cheer as loud as they can.

            That is what I think we should do if we put 100% into our worship, if we love our God with all our heart, soul, and might. Just like when angels in heaven rejoice when a sinner comes to repentance, that is what I believe we should do when we hear of the great things God has done. What happens when Babe Ruth or Barry Bonds hits a 500-foot homerun? What about when a running back runs for a 90 yard touchdown or when Michael Jordan dunks over Shaq?

            The kind of emotion that people show in theses events is what I think we should show when someone gets the Holy Ghost or a miracle is witnessed. When someone gets the Holy Ghost, we should praise and worship the Lord for it just like people show emotion when their favorite team wins the championship for the first time ever. Every time my high school alma mater won a football game, they had a victory march. I think every time someone gets the Holy Ghost or a miracle is witnessed, that we should have a victory march because they have won against the devil. Jesus has conquered, Satan is defeated, and the enemy is under our feet. So we should shout with the voice of triumph, shout with the voice of praise, shout unto God for the victory, and give the Lord a shout of praise.

            We should do like 1 Thessalonians 5:16 – “16Rejoice evermore.”

            We should remember Romans 1:16 – “16For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also the Greek.”

            Being ashamed of the gospel of Christ is the same as being ashamed of God because it says in John 1:1 – “1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

            Why should we be ashamed of someone that is so good to us? Webster defines ashamed as – dishonor or disgust. So if we go out in the world and are afraid to talk about God or you feel you will get embarrassed, that’s the same thing as being ashamed. We should be able to talk about God more than any other form of conversation, because He is our God and He has done more for us than any sport, music, TV, computer, video game, job, or relationship combined could ever do. If we give God 100% of our love and devotion, then everything else must be secondary. Instead of watching TV, there is a Bible story that is twice as good as any show.

            So my goal is to go home and read my Bible everyday and talk to God all the time and treat Jesus like my God.
