Loving God wholeheartedly is not only the greatest and most important commandment, it is also the only way to truly live and the smartest thing you or I could ever do with our lives.
Why, you may ask? Well, because God is the best Being in the whole universe. He is the best Lover, the best Father, and the most powerful force there is in the whole universe. He commands us to love Him because nothing else will truly satisfy and fulfill us. When He tells us to love Him, it’s because He knows that is what’s best for us. Loving God wholeheartedly is for our own good, and that’s why it’s the smartest thing do!
Think about this: God is all powerful, all-knowing, absolutely good and very wise (and this list could go on and on). And the Bible says that He accepts and loves us unconditionally; He is for us; He is on our side, and He desires nothing short of what’s best for us. If all this is true, wouldn’t you agree that giving Him our love is the best way to live and the smartest thing to do?
Not loving Him wholeheartedly is tantamount to wasting your life. Every single day that passes by without loving God wholeheartedly is a wasted day, and unfortunately a wasted day can never be recovered.
For how long will you continue to waste your life, my friend? Until when will you wait before you commit to loving Him wholeheartedly? Please don’t waste one more day. Commit right now to loving Him with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind and all your strength. If you’re wondering where to start, let me suggest this: start by setting aside time each and every day to be alone with Him. During this time, open His word (the Bible) and read it; then spend some time talking to Him. Then throughout your day, remind yourself of His presence, thank Him and tell Him that you love Him.
Don’t waste your life. Be smart, love God wholeheartedly.
