1 Samuel 12:24 Only fear ADONAI, and serve him faithfully with all your heart; for think what great things he has done for you!
At first read this verse is a warning and instruction on how to live my life. It tells me that to not serve Yehovah is to doom myself. History proves that Our Creator requires two things primarily #1 Love Him with all our heart #2 Remain obedient to His commands. I guess what I need to apply from this verse is that if I truly love Yehovah wouldn't I easily put aside self indulgence in order to become a Holy Temple for Him in which to dwell? When I release my fear, it testifies that Yehovah has never wronged me in anyway...
