Obey from the heart

II Kings 10:31 But Jehu took no heed to walk in the law of the LORD God of Israel with all his heart: for he departed not from the sins of Jeroboam, which made Israel to sin.

Notice that Jehu will not obey. He will not pay attention to what God has told him to do. He halfheartedly might do something, but he will not give his heart to do what God wants him to do. He continued in his sin. He continued to follow those that had rebelled against God. He led Israel into the same sins as always.

How often are we unwilling to pay attention to God when He speaks. We partially listened. We serve halfheartedly. We are not giving our all to do what we know that He wants us to do.

We are in a very bad place when we continue in our ways, our directions doing what we think is right. It is time to listen up, obey, and put God first.
