Question: "What does it mean to love the Lord with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength?"
..... This command seems to be impossible to obey. That's because, in the natural state of man, it is impossible. There is no greater evidence of the inability of man to obey God's Law than this one commandment. No human being with a fallen nature can possibly love God with all his heart, soul, and strength 24 hours a day. It's humanly impossible. But to disobey any commandment of God is sin. Therefore, even without considering the sins we commit daily, we are all condemned by our inability to fulfill this one commandment. This is the reason Jesus continually reminded the Pharisees of their inability to keep the Law of God. He was trying to get them to see their utter spiritual bankruptcy and their need for a Savior. Without the cleansing of sin that He provides, and the empowering presence of the Holy Spirit who lives in the hearts of the redeemed, loving God to any degree is impossible..... read more
As we grow in the Lord, our heart and mind begins to see the Lord God as a priceless treasure. The lies, anger and any sin that comes between us and the Lord will be repented of quickly because obedience to Christ is a joyful choice!
Jesus help me to trust in the Father's love, rejoice in my salvation and praise God because He cares for me!!!
