Competing Forces-Ecstasi McKenzie-Rollison

Matthew 12:30 (NKJV)

“And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment”.

Compete: to strive conscious or unconscious for a object such as a position or price; To be in a state of rivalry. Another definition is: strive to gain or win something by defeating or establishing superiority over others who are trying to do the same.

Synonyms for the word compete are battle, contend, face off, fight, race, and rival.

Genesis 22:2 (NKJV)

God says “Take your son, your only son, whom you love—Isaac—and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on a mountain I will show you.”

1 John 2:15-17 (MSG)

Don’t love the world’s ways. Don’t love the world’s goods. Love of the world squeezes out love for the Father. Practically everything that goes on in the world—wanting your own way, wanting everything for yourself, wanting to appear important—has nothing to do with the Father. It just isolates you from him. The world and all its wanting, wanting, wanting is on the way out—but whoever does what God wants is set for eternity”.
