Bible Challenge – Matthew 22

“Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’  38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.” v.37-40 (NLT)

Sounds pretty simple, right? But denying ourselves is one of the most challenging thing a Christ Follower does. Some times we read these words and say, “I love God, and I try to love others, so I’m doing pretty good!” However, to truly love God means that we adjust our lives to His way of life. This takes commitment, dedication, prayer, faith, and a some real hard work. When we truly love someone, we will do whatever it takes to show our love to them, but sadly, when it comes to our love for God, we think showing up to church on Sunday is good enough!

Here’s the honest truth, we will never fully love others, until we know Gods Love for us, and express our love for Him. We have the privilege and invitation to have a personal relationship with the creator of the Universe.  How cool is that?

Today, hows your love gage? Is it full or sitting on empty?
