PostSubject: A Basic Command   Sat May 21, 2016 11:42 am

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” Mark 12:30

In my younger years I loved to play softball, and I learned quickly that the game itself is only a small part of being on the team. A great deal of time was spent on the basics: training in the fundamentals of hitting, catching, picking up ground balls, reacting when the ball is hit to you. We practiced until these things were (supposed to be) second nature.

It’s not much different as a Christian on God’s team. The basics of learning, studying, and delving into His Word are important. And Jesus gave us His most fundamental command—"to love Him with all that is in us." Every part of our emotions, our life, our intellect, and our physical effort must find their focus in Him.

God’s desire is for our life commitment where a dynamic devotion to Him is cultivated. This comes as we draw near to Him daily, experiencing the warmth of His love. The very reason we can draw near to Him is because He has first sought out us. We love Him because He first loved us. 1 John 4:19. He loved us enough to send His Son Jesus to provide a way for us to go to heaven. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Now let's take it one step further and read the next verse because it describes a basic example of what a good portion of loving God "looks like". If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen? 1 John 4:20. How many times do I say I love God, but then not love another human being I know, have met or who may even be part of my own family? Let us consider what Christ endured on the way to the cross...and on the cross...as the ultimate example of loving others, even when He was mistreated and abused. Never has love been shown so richly as in God’s beautiful plan of rescuing us all from our sins through Jesus.

Insight: Imagine if the world could follow this basic command. And then follow through with committing ourselves to drawing closer to Him and loving those around us each and every day. Let's start by following through and doing this ourselves...

Dear Lord, Help me to live life with Your basic command. I want to love You with all my heart and with all my soul and with all my mind and with all my strength. Thank you for loving me first. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
