A BORN-AGAIN BELIEVER

ALL

Jesus said that the greatest of all commandments is to love God, and to do so with all your heart and all your soul and all your mind and all your strength. By his life choices, Jesus showed us what this meant.

 

To love God means to let him guide you in everything you do. Not just in some things – in everything.

 

To love God means to wait for God to show you the way, not to make plans first and then ask God to bless them.

 

To love God means to put your trust wholly in him, and him alone.

 

To love God means not having a mortgage.

 

To love God means not having insurance.

 

To love God means not having a pension plan.

 

To love God means not having any savings beyond what you need for the very very very short term.

 

To love God means not owning any property beyond a few things for your daily needs.

 

To love God means not striving to make the world a better place but telling the world about a better place.

 

To love God means to preach the Word always and in all ways.

 

To love God means to leave your job IMMEDIATELY when Jesus says “Follow me.”

 

To love God means to leave your loved ones  (and your loved things) to follow Jesus.

 

To love God means to hold no grudges against anyone for any reason.

 

To love God means not to sue in court.

 

To love God means to speak the truth at whatever the cost. God’s Word is the truth.

 

To love God means to let people dislike you just because you love God.

 

To love God means that whatever and whoever you were before you loved God, you’re not that person anymore. Your personality is the same, your looks may be the same, but your values have changed 100%, and your life should reflect that.

 

To love God means to love him 24/7, all year long, not just on Sundays and at Bible class.

 

To love God means you’d rather die than not love him.

 

To love God means you’d rather be killed than kill.

 

To love God means to choose the opposite of what the world tells you is right and honorable.

 

To love God means to let the world think you’re wrong and dishonorable just because you love God.

 

In exchange for your love, God loves through you. There is no greater good and no greater pleasure and no greater ambition and no greater reward than to love God and to let him love through you.

 

This is what Jesus meant when he said that to love God was the greatest of all commandments.

 

To love God means to give him your all.
