To Love God
“Keep the main thing the main thing.”
Jesus was asked this question
this is a way of commanding the people to love God completely, wholeheartedly, without any reservations; it is a love that includes emotion, intellect, will. So love here contains not only the elements of liking and affection but also devotion and commitment to God.
The Lord is One: (Deut. 6:4)
Why should we love God?
Because it is where the greatest blessing is found Dt. 6:1-3
Because He is The Lord Deut. 6:4
Because he first loved us 1 John 4:19
What if I don’t really love God all that much?
The command is not a demand to manufacture false emotion but to cultivate a disposition
