“You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.” - Deuteronomy 6:5
As Christians, in order to keep our identity alive, we must know who we are in Christ; loving God with all our heart, soul, and might. I believe LOVE is the key!
Jesus, in the New Testament, goes little further and completes the commandment written in Deuteronomy 6:5… And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.”- Luke 10:27
LOVE MAKES THE DIFFERENCE! We must walk in love. When we walk in love, then we are obedient to God. God takes FIRST PLACE in our lives and we no longer live for ourselves but for Him as Paul mentioned in Galatians 2:20.... “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
To keep our identity ALIVE we need to constantly remind ourselves that who we are in Christ and love our God with all our heart, soul, and might. We must love others as ourselves. Our love, and our total obedience to God, will MAKE GREAT DIFFERENCE IN THIS WORLD!
