Loving God

You may say you believe in God, but do you love God?

When a lawyer asked Jesus what is the greatest commandment in the law, Jesus did not answer with one of the 10 commandments. Instead Jesus quoted from our text today, Deuteronomy 6:5  "You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.

 Later Jesus did not ask Peter, “Peter, do you believe in me?”, No. But three times He asked Peter, “Peter, do you love me?” 

We have tendency to dissect our lives into little pieces. But the truth is if you believe in God you will love God. If you love God you will obey God. If you obey God it shows you have faith in God.
