About Lost Way Series
We search for what we do not know, driven by what we cannot recognize. What is life about? There is a way, the lost way, with answers for us all.
Deuteronomy 6:5 NLT
And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength.
To love God was a command in the Old Testament. It was a LAW, which no one could obey to the level of completion. David loved God passionately, as no one else in the history of Israel and the record of the Old Testament. But his love was not total. His love had failures along the way.
What was a LAW in the Old Testament is a GIFT in the New.
The ONE, Jesus Christ – who loves His Father perfectly – gives to those who want it His own complete Love for God that will permeate the entire person.
