With all your heart, soul and mind!
Love God, Love People, Reach the World. This is our goal, not just a random idea that popped into our heads. Scripture lays this out clearly. A lawyer came to Jesus and asked, “Master, which is the great commandment in the law?”
Jesus said to him; You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment.
Jesus’ statement shouldn’t have surprised anyone. This points back to the first four commandments in Exodus 20:1-11. If we truly love the Lord, it follows that we would NOT have other Gods before him. Nor would we make graven images of Him, use His name in vain nor neglect our relationship with Him.
When we gather to worship our Lord, we worship him in spirit and truth. We do this through music (traditional and contemporary), with a time of Praise, and through boldly proclaiming God’s word.
Jesus doesn’t stop there, as he next tells the lawyer that we are to Love People.
