Matthew 22

Matthew 22:37-38 “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.”

I wonder how many problems would be solved if we simple loved God with all we had. Think about it if we loved God like he’s called us to we couldn’t continue in our sin (Matt 6:24) everything we ever would need would be supplied (Matt 6:33) the world would get evangelized because we would love others like ourselves (Matt 22:39) and because Jesus called us to (Matt 28:18-20).

When I read verse 40 “On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” I believe God began to open the eyes of heart to begin to realize just how crucial a real love for God is. I don’t know how to exactly explain what or how my heart knew or believed for the first time except that God did the work and opened my heart to see his truths.


Lord I know I don’t have a love for you that I need or want… Father would you give me a love for yourself so that you could be brought glory through my life…. Lord God please give a desire to know and love you, make my heart one that longs for you….
