Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 07/07/13

This week’s scripture is from Mark:

Jesus is Risen“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.”  (Mark 12:30)

If we seek God will we not find Him? He told us to seek Him and His kingdom first and all else would be added to us. We are to love Him who first loved us and sent His son to die for us. Is not our worship to love God as He loves? And how is that? According to our Lord, it is completely, totally, all in all, first with all our heart, for God looks at the heart, then with all our soul, for He has saved our souls from death, then with all our mind, for we are to have the mind of Christ, and finally with all our strength, for He is our strength. If we love Him fully with every part of our being we are loving Him as He loves us, for His love is all-consuming; it never falters; it never fails; it never ends. God is love, and He loves us.

May God’s love overwhelm you with love for Him.
