Love According to God-Love, It Matters to God

Today, we are starting on a new series…Love According to God. Be blessed and enjoy!

Matthew 22: 37-40

Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.


Love matters to God: a lot. How much does it matter to Him? Well, just read the above passage. Jesus taught us that the greatest commandment is to Love God with everything we have. And the second greatest commandment is like it: we are to love our neighbor like we love ourselves.

Today begins a devotional series on some of the things God’s word has to say about the topic of love. The Bible has many, many things to say about love; there are so many that if we discussed them all this would become simply the Daily Love Devotional. So, we are just going to look at some of them.

The key take away for today is going to be to take note of the fact that Jesus didn’t say these two were the biggest suggestions; He said they are the biggest commandments! These aren’t things Jesus would have us do if we don’t mind, or if we agree or if we like it.

We are to love our neighbor just as we love ourselves, which for most of us is fairly completely. God says so. If we choose to NOT love our neighbor, we are basically thumbing our noses in the face of Almighty God! That is really not a good idea.

Stay posted for more about love over the next while!

  1. Reblogged this on FOR THE LOVE OF GOD and commented:
    My Brother-in-Christ, Wally Fry started a new devotional/study series for his church website based on God’s Love and His command to us to love as well.

    I want to repost them and I’m a couple of weeks behind his posting so it will work out fine. Visit his church site for new posts or to catch up, but for those of you who want, I will try and reblog one of his posts every few days.

    Those of you who know me and have known me, know how much I love to teach on Love, unconditional Godly Love, so this is a joy for me to see someone else take up this subject in this way. Besides, Brother Wally isn’t as “wordy” as me and comes right to the point! 😉

    Enjoy this SERIES and God bless you all, abundantly!
