Minimum Objectives

Love for the Lord Jesus Christ can show up in numbers of different ways. It could take up every moment of every day. You could never stop doing what He wants you to do, there are so many things to do for Him that He wants. However, if you do love the Lord Jesus Christ, there are certain, what I call, “minimum objectives,” that must be done. They are required. If you love Him, these must be done. If you don’t do them, you don’t love Him. Jesus said, “If ye love me, keep my commandments, my words, my sayings” (John 14:15,20,21). Keeping them could mean doing something every single minute of the day for Him, because you could read your Bible more, pray more, evangelize more, testify for Christ more, and memorize more. You could replace something that is temporal for something that is eternal. There are numbers of ways to do this, but if you love Christ, then there are minimum objectives. They are the least you can do. 1 Corinthians 16:22 says, “If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha.” “Anathema” means “cursed.” “Cursed” means you are not saved. “Maranatha” means, “when He comes.” If someone doesn’t love Jesus Christ, he’s not saved when Jesus Christ comes back. If you love Him, you’ll at least fulfill certain minimums. He never stops giving to us. One of these is faithfulness to church, what Hebrews 10:25 calls, the assembling of ourselves together, which is worshiping Him. Let’s fulfill at least the minimum objectives.
