HOW MUCH DO WE LOVE HIM
“And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.”
Mark 12:29, 30 (King James Version)
Jesus has commanded us to love God with all our heart, with all our soul, with all our mind and with all our strength. Can we honestly say that we love Him as Jesus has commanded us to love Him? How much do we love Him? Does He come first in our heart and in our life?
Heavenly Father, please forgive us for allowing family, friends and things to come before You. Help us to make You first in everything in our heart and in our life. I do love You, precious Father, and I appreciate all You have done for me and all that You do for me every day. Thank You for loving me. Amen.
