Step 23: Loving God, with all of Myself

One day a man came to Lord Jesus and asked Him: “Which is the most important command God has given us?

”The Lord Jesus replied: 

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.”  Mark 12:30

“How do I love God this way?” I wondered.  Then Holy Spirit shone his light in my heart and showed me.

God wants me to love him with all of me!  He wants my total and complete devotion! He wants me to give Him first place in my life! 

I look back on all that God has done for me: 

He created me in my mother’s womb and gave me life. He has given me all the blessings I enjoy in this life.

He gave his own Son to save me from my sinful ways and has given me a new life.

He has given me his Holy Spirit to be with me and guide me till the end of my life.

He has promised to be with me always in all the trials and cares of this life, guide me and take care of me.

He has prepared a home for me in heaven, to live with Him forever.

How can I not love my God who has blessed me with so much?

Then I wondered: How do I show my love for God? Again Holy Spirit shone His light in my heart and showed me.

First and foremost, I show my love for God by hating what He hates:  SIN

In the next lesson, we will see what sin is according to God.

Prayer: “ Heavenly Father, please help me to love You with all of me.”
