Growing A Deep Love For God.
What does the Bible mean when it says “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind?” (Mathew 22:37 KJV) – Deep Love For God.
Why is it relevant that we should love God with everything that matters in our life. Yes, it is conventional that we love God absolutely because the day we surrendered our lives to him, we made a confession that we will serve Him all the days of our lives.
From the above scripture, Jesus teaches us this, and it is considered the greatest commandment.
Why Is It Necessary To Love God?
Let us consider those things we naturally have interests in. If you love a TV show, you can’t seem to be bored watching the show over and over again, to the extent you might virtually create time for it.
When we cherish something, it is very imperative that we make out special time for such things, and enjoy anything that relates to it. That is why the Bible says we should not have false idols, because we can so naturally replace our love of the father with such things.
It is very important for us as believers in Christ to love God with all our heart, soul, and mind because the more we love Him, the more we will Glorify Him, we will frequently talk about Him, the way we talk about our natural affairs.
Growing our love deeply for God as the topic entails will give us the desire to read the Bible daily, pray daily and evangelise to the lost souls. And even seek for other things we can do for God simply because we love Him.
There are beautiful reasons why believers should love God.
1. He loved us by giving us His son, Jesus Christ to be the saviour of Mankind.
2. He has made an eternal home for every person that truly loves Him.
There are several reasons why the love of the father shouldn’t fade away in our hearts.
More Ways On Showing Deep Love For God.
Love Him as a daily routine: Just as we can’t miss our work daily without reasonable excuses, this is the way it should be in our love for God. You live your life daily for Him (1 Corinthians 10:31 KJV).
Helping Humanity Through Giving is another way of showing a deeper love for Him. There are thousands of people who are impoverished, and these people need to be helped through giving of material gifts in order to sustain themselves.
When we grow our love deeply for Him, everything must surely fall in place for us.
May God bless you as you grow your love deeply for Him.
