You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.
“Do this and you will live” - Jesus
This is the greatest commandment, according to Jesus himself. Then, as self-proclaiming Christians, shouldn’t we live our lives reflecting this single, most-important commandment?
Loving God and loving others. Sure, from the looks of it may sound relatively simple, but too many times we water-down what it means to truly love. It’s our job (not an option) as Christians to be madly in love, with the Lord our God.
How many times do we need to Skype our girlfriend/boyfriends because we cannot stand being away? How many times do we neglect God for school? We put painstaking effort to meet the expectations of man.We shed blood, sweat, and tears to maintain our grades.
But how self-sacrificial are we when it comes to pleasing God and serving others? How far are we willing to go to LOVE God, the Creator of the Universe? If we continue to place ourselves above God and break the greatest commandment how could we even dare call ourselves Christians?
I am wholly guilty. None of us our perfect, and all of us have failed to follow this commandment. But we must remember it is through Christ Himself that we are given the supernatural strength to overcome our imperfections and fleshly desires.
Where does this strength come from?
It all comes down to prayer and reading the Word of God.
please pray for me.
