I too shall serve the Lord!

Love God only.  Fear and worship only Him.

"If you decide that it's a bad thing to worship God, then choose a god you'd rather serve—and do it today. Choose one of the gods your ancestors worshiped from the country beyond The River, or one of the gods of the Amorites, on whose land you're now living. As for me and my family, we'll worship God."
(Joshua 24:15 MSG)

"Those who run after other gods will suffer more and more. I will not pour out libations of blood to such gods or take up their names on my lips."  (Psalm 16:4 NIV)

This Commandment is not difficult

Seek first God, His Kingdom and manner of doing right.  Then ask and receive.

"Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the ʟORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’   This is the first and great commandment.   And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ 
(Matthew 22:37-39 NKJV)

Dressing up for Jesus

Are properly dressed for the party of the King?

"When the king entered and looked over the scene, he spotted a man who wasn't properly dressed. He said to him, 'Friend, how dare you come in here looking like that!' The man was speechless. Then the king told his servants, 'Get him out of here—fast. Tie him up and ship him to hell. And make sure he doesn't get back in.'

"That's what I mean when I say, 'Many get invited only a few make it.'"
(Matthew 22: 11 -  14  MSG)

You too, go and work in the Vineyard

"As Jesus was walking along, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at his tax collector’s booth. “Follow me and be my disciple,” Jesus said to him. So Matthew got up and followed him.
(Matthew 9:9 NLT)
