Your Love

There is nothing you have that is of more interest to God than your love.

It’s impossible to love God as much as He loves us, because by His very nature, God is love. He doesn’t have to try to love us. He can do nothing else. On the other hand, our love is fickle. We love when we feel like it, and that includes loving God. Yet we are commanded to love God. In fact, loving God is the most important instruction that Jesus ever gave (Mark 12:30).

Your love for God should not be half-hearted. You should commit yourself to it completely: with your heart (feelings), your soul (spirit), your mind (intellect), and your strength (action).

Loving God is a lifelong process that involves the entire being. Nothing should be held back. Is there some part of you that you haven’t yet given to God? Are you loving Him completely, or half-heartedly?

This is real love. It is not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.

1 John 4:10
