When I started out with this it was fueled by my word for this year “REAL” as I prayed I heard the Lord speak this Scripture
‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind.’ And, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ ~ Luke 10:27
I wrote last week about loving God with all your heart…. today I will begin with Love the Lord your God with all your SOUL….
So the question I ask is “how do I love God with all my soul”? This is a huge question. In my last blog I wrote about loving God with all our heart, while loving the Lord with all our heart has to do with affection, love the Lord with all our soul has to do with devotion.
The biblical definition for soul means life, personality, the inner self and our identity. It’s were we make our decisions and choices and ultimately decide our lifestyle and behavior.
To love the Lord with all of your soul means to love Him in the way you live, in the choices you make and in the behavior and lifestyle you adopt.
LOVE THE LORE WITH ALL YOUR SOUL BY PURSUING A LIFE OF HUMILITY IN ATTITUDES AND SPEECH.
When Jesus is our Great Treasure then our affections are captured. This is how we love God with all of our heart…. When our affections are captured then choices become god-centered and a lifestyle of humility.
LOVE THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR SOUL BY MAKING GODLY CHOICES.
We do what we value!! If we treasure our relationship with the Lord our choices will simply mirror the Treasure. Choices flow from what we treasure most!
LOVE THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR SOUL BY PURSUING OBEDIENCE TO HIS WORD.
We live by every Word that proceed from the mouth of God, we are tangibly expressing our love for the Lord.
Now go out and have an EPIC day today
