Title: A Great & First Commandment
Text: Matthew 22:36-38; Deuteronomy 6:4-6
Thought for the Day:
Jesus is asked to identify the great commandment in the Law and Jesus answers. Essentialy, Jesus quotes Deuteronomy 6:4-6 known as the Shema. This instruction to love God with all that you are and all that you have has been the basis of the relationship between God and Hid people for thousands of years. Why? When someone makes loving God the priority in life, all else falls in place in proper perspective and in proper emphasis.
This vertical love toward God should be clearly evident in the life of the believer and in the life of the church. How will we as individuals demonstrate our love for God? How will we as a church demonstrate our love for God, not in what we say, but in what we do?
Pray through this Thought for the Day as the Spirit leads you in your heart and in your mind. Amen
