We have been charged by Jesus to love the Lord our God with all our heart and with all our soul and with all our strength. This is the greatest commandment. We have to love with our minds, where we learn about Him, think rightly about Him, and get to know Him through His word. We have to also love with our hearts, including our emotions and wills, and show love through our obedience to Him. We love God because He is the source of all good gifts and every blessing! He is our ultimate reward and only what He rewards is eternal. Everything else will fade away or will be destroyed. Christ died for you. Love Him with all your heart and soul and strength!
