Love your God

031What I want from you is plain and clear .I want your constant love, not your animal sacrifices. Hosea 6:6. God deeply loves us and desires that we love him in return. He desires that we know him and spend time with him. Like any other relationship one needs to know the other and be a friend. God does not only want us to love him but to love him supremely that is above all else. When you love someone you put him first in your thoughts and daily plans.
Jesus said the greatest commandment is this “Love the Lord your God with all your heart , with all your soul and with all your mind”. In everything we do our guiding principle should be to Know and to Love God. We get to know and love him by spending time with him in his word. Reading the bible, listening to preachers, attending bible studies and fellowship in small Christian communities are a sure way to know and love God. The more we read the bible the more we understand who God is and the more he reveals himself to us. The whole bible is a continuous revelation of who God is. The Holy Spirit when he resides in us reveals God as we read. meditate and listen to the word of God. Everyday occurrences also contribute in revealing God.
The more we know God the stronger the foundation upon which we base our life. God loved us first and sent his beloved son Jesus Christ to die for our redemption. Our response to Gods invitation gives him pleasure
