Matthew 22 verses 37 through 38.
The Bible reads Jesus replied, love the Lord, your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind, this is the first and greatest commandment and the second is like it, love your neighbor as yourself.
All of Christianity can be summarized by two basic commandments, love God and love others.
Let’s look at the first of these commandments given by Jesus.
When you love the Lord, your God with all your heart, soul and mind, you will obey His word.
You will not have any idols in your life.
When you truly love God, you’ll no longer have any affection for this world because the Bible says, friendship with the world is enmity with God.
I believe that Jesus said the first and greatest commandment is to love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
And with all your mind. Because when you’ve reached the point where you deeply truly are consumed by God’s love, the transformation takes place.
It’s his will that takes priority. It’s his word that takes priority.
The first and greatest commandment is to love the Lord, your God with all your heart, soul and mind.
Because when you do that, all of your actions are geared towards loving and honoring God.
For example, you will not practice sin because God hates sin.
You will not become someone who tells lies because the Bible says lying lips are an abomination to the Lord and out of love, you live your life according to the Lord’s will.
Now it’s interesting that the second commandment Jesus gave us is to do with people.
The first commandment has everything to do with your intentions, your affections and your commitment to God.
Above the second commandment is to do with your intentions, affections and commitment to those around you.
Because of God above. We’re encouraged to love our neighbors to consider their interest.
And most people think you simply need to have a good relationship with everyone in order to love your neighbor.
But that’s a very shallow view.
When you love your neighbor, you’re not just concerned about their physical well-being and that’s it.
No, when you love your neighbor, you love them enough to care for their eternal soul and their spiritual condition.
Meaning yes, you give to those less fortunate and you help as much as you can.
But you also share the gospel of Jesus Christ with them and you share your own personal testimony of God’s faithfulness you pray with and for your neighbor, you encourage them and you uplift them in Christ.
And so dear listener, I pray that you hear me.
As I say, this, Jesus Christ should be our first and greatest love.
Because when the Lord is the burning passion in our lives, we will be transformed. We’ll be changed.
We’ll be regenerated into new creatures. It’s only when God is the greatest love in your life.
It’s only then that you can truly love your neighbor.
And so as we go before the throne of grace, let’s go with the intention to have a better love, walk and love life with God and to love our neighbors in a better way.
Heavenly Father hear our prayer today.
Dear God, take away this heart of stone that is in us and give us a new heart.
Master. Give us a heart that loves you above and beyond anything or anyone else.
Dear Lord, enable us to have a burning passion for you and a true love for you that will shape our entire lives.
God, we know you don’t want half hearted commitment from us. You want our whole hearts.
You want us to love and depend on you with everything.
We have your word in Matthew six verse 33 says, but seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added to you.
So God, we put you first.
You’re first in our lives, you’re first in our homes and in our marriages, God, you’re above all.
I pray that you would give us the grace Lord to put you first in every sense, give us the grace to have the presence of mind, to ensure that we would never get so preoccupied in this world that we have no time for you on a day to day basis.
Yes, we may have many things competing for our attention.
But may the Holy Spirit help us to make Jesus Christ the priority of our lives.
Your word in John 14 verse 15 says, if you love me, you will keep my commandments to love you God with everything.
We have means to faithfully obey you. Even when it’s uncomfortable, even when it’s painful.
Father, enable us to do so. Lord give us the grace to love you and obey your word.
Give us an increased capacity to love our neighbors.
Lord Jesus, help us to love our enemies, help us to care for the poor and marginalized.
King Jesus, help us to spread the gospel to the people around us.
Father, help me to love you more.
Help me to walk in agreement with your word in Galatians.
Two verse 20 I have been crucified with Christ.
It is no longer I who live but Christ who lives in me and the life I now live in the flesh.
I live by faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave himself for me.
Lord, let this be the reality in our lives.
May Christ live in us, help us to die to self and live through you.
Help us to live this life by faith.
Master Lord, we wanna love you with everything we have.
We want to love and honor you, not just with our words, but with our lives, we want to love and to honor you God with our actions, with our hearts and with our time and even with our decisions, Holy Spirit help us to hold nothing back from the Lord.
I pray father that you would see me as someone who has completely surrendered to your will over my life.
I wanna be someone who puts your will over my own selfish ambitions.
You have our undivided attention to God. Nothing else is more wonderful.
Nothing more glorious, nothing more worthy than you. Thank you God.
Thank you for loving me with an everlasting love.
Even when I am far from you, I pray these things in jesus’ name.
