LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL AND WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH. – Deutronomy 6:5
This is the greatest commandment given to the children of Israel. It is also stated again in Matthew by Jesus.
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all our soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.”
However, Jesus continues and says,
“All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
In other words, Jesus is saying that it is impossible for mankind to fulfill these commandments.
Even though, it is impossible for mankind to fulfill this commandment with “GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE”. Jesus dying for our righteousness, rising again, and sending his Spirit to live inside of us makes it POSSIBLE!!
Jesus living on the inside of us and the trials that he takes us through give us the capacity to LOVE THE LORD OUR GOD WITH ALL OUR HEART AND WITH ALL OUR SOUL AND WITH ALL OUR STRENGTH.
Like the Children of Israel and Job, God brought them out to bring them in to their promise. I think God takes us through things to increase our Faith and our Love for him.
Someone said, We cannot love someone we don’t know, so knowing Him should be our first priority. Those who pursue God and His righteousness, who take seriously the command to love Him above all else, are those who are consumed with the things of God. They are eager to study God’s Word, eager to pray, eager to obey and honor God in all things, and eager to share Jesus Christ with others. It is through these spiritual disciplines that the love for God grows and matures to the glory of God. – Gotquestions.0rg
