Love God

 “One day an expert in religious law stood up to test Jesus by asking him this question: ‘Teacher, what should I do to inherit eternal life?’ Jesus replied, ‘What does the law of Moses say? How do you read it?’ The man answered, ‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind.’ And, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ ‘Right!’ Jesus told him. ‘Do this and you will live.”
Luke 10:25-28 (NLT)

love-god-in-sand-1314534-640x480In this passage we are reminded of the two greatest commandments. First, we are told to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, strength, and mind. When we truly love God in this manner, we experience what it really means to delight ourselves in the Lord, and this love we have been given begins to overflow from us. Let’s spend today making sure our hearts are fully committed to God, our soul is refreshed in His Spirit, our bodies are strengthened by His power, and our mind filled with His Word so that we may offer a hundred percent of ourselves in service to God. Pray that we will, first and foremost, seek to love and obey God with our lives, and that His love would pour from us to those who are searching and desperately need God.
