“Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with question: Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
Jesus replied: “Love the Lord your God with all your soul and heart and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hand on these two commandments”
Is it possible to know everything about the bible and not truly love God?
That can happen. The Pharisees know everything about the bible, but yet they tend not to love God. All God really wants is for us to love him. We are God’s children. God wants us to become the church. The Holy Spirit is God and He lives inside us through our soul. If we love God, then our life would be more fulfilling. Love is greater then fear and is the key to fixing this broken society. Yes, it may be hard to love God at times, but if we trust in him, then He will guide us on a strong spiritual journey.
“Teach me your way, Lord that I may rely on your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name”
It makes no sense that we are called to passionately love God, but yet we must fear His name.What does fear have to do with love? We all know that love is greater then fear. It is the most complex and best human emotion. What does it really mean to fear God’s name?
