Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. – Deuteronomy 6:5
How much does the Lord love you? Does He love you with all of His heart? Does He love you with all of His soul? Does He love you with all of His strength?
God’s love is so vast that He can love each of us deeply and completely. His love is without measure. God’s love is so boundless because it is part of His nature, it is who He is. The whole of creation was formed by His imagination and power, everything that exists is because of His creativity. His love is even greater and more mighty than that! And God uses his imagination to think of ways to love us, He uses his power to bring about His love is every moment of our lives, His creativity gives us so many good gifts.
God knows we cannot return that kind of love. But He asks us to consider His wonderful love for us, and respond to it the best that we can. Use our hearts and will, give our innermost thoughts and desires, turn our strength and efforts towards loving Him. He doesn’t ask for duty or responsibility or obligation. He wants us to be His children and love Him as a Father. He knows that love brings us into a relationship with Himself, and also joy and peace with each other. Love the Lord!
