Love the Lord

“And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.” Deuteronomy  6:5

All throughout Deuteronomy (Deut. 10:12, 11:1, 8, 13-14, 13:3, 19:9, 30:16, 30:20), and in some of the New Testament Gospels (Mat. 22:37, Mark 12:30, Luke 10:27), we are reminded that we are to love the Lord our God.  When commandments like these are repeated so often, it should be very clear that God wants us to get His message.

God wants us to love Him with our whole being. We should not love him so that we can “get” from Him.  Too many make God a “Santa Claus,” and only go to Him with their constant “want” list. There is a time that we can ask of Him, and He will provide. However, most importantly, God wants us to have a relationship with Him.  We should love Him for all He has done for us. 

A grateful, loving heart should be the motivation for our love for our Creator.  This love should be the main reason we do anything for God, and why we obey Him. We should try to please Him because we want to, not because we have to!

Here are some reminders why we should love our great God in Heaven.


It should be easy to love a God thathas done so much for every one of us.  Have you told Him today you love Him?  Have you shown that love by your actions and your obedience to what He requires of you?  Are you fulfilling His desire that you love Him with “all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might?”  He IS worthy!
