Visual Verse of the Day: 1 Kings 8:60-61 and Young Children Hiking, Indian Cave State Park, Nebraska.
“So that all the peoples of the earth may know that the LORD is God; there is no one else. Let your heart therefore be wholly devoted to the LORD our God, to walk in His statutes and to keep His commandments, as at this day.” 1 Kings 8:60-61
Living by His Statutes
In I Kings 8 King Solomon dedicates the newly constructed temple of The Lord. In his benediction (verses 54-61) he calls the people of Israel to let their hearts “be wholly devoted to the LORD our God”. The Bible calls us to examine our lives. Each Christian believer needs to ask themselves, “Does the way I speak, live, dress and the entertainment choices I make reflect a heart for God or a heart for something else.” Only through Christian believers who live for Christ will the world be changed.
