Deuteronomy 13:3-4 (When a false prophet arises and calls you to follow other gods), “You shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams; for the LORD your God is testing you to find out if you love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul. You shall follow the LORD your God and fear Him; and you shall keep His commandments, listen to His voice, serve Him, and cling to Him.”
I just love the string of verbs in this passage. This verse is life in sum: Love God, follow Him, fear Him, obey Him, listen to Him, serve Him, and desperately cling to Him. Get this right, and you’ve got life right.
