I will love thee, O Lord, my strength.
Our scripture text answers the implied question, how we are to respond to God love? All mankind should respond to God's love by loving Him in return for His love, grace and mercy that was imparted to us. Because of God's love He sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for the sins of the world so that all who believe will have eternal life. It was God's grace and mercy that spared all who believe from spending eternity separated from Him.
We respond by recognizing that without God we can do nothing neither accomplish anything on our own. Also, we respond to God's love by telling others of His goodness and the blessed benefits from being members of God's holy family of royal priests and a holy nation of people (1 Peter 2:9). It is noteworthy to say that all believers are chosen by God and selected as His children was predetermine from the foundation of the world. That being said, man's failure to return God's love is the ultimate expression of ungratefulness for what God has done and continues to do in our lives.
We reciprocate God's love by saying, I love You, I adore You, I praise You, honor You and I am committed to pleasing You.
