What is true love of God?

Share |

We love God above all things when we with our whole heart cling to Him as our dearest treasure and highest joy. A person who truly loves God will reject everything that would separate him from God, and will gladly live in accordance with His Commandments.

Ps. 73:25,26: Whom have I in heaven but Thee? And there is none upon earth that I desire beside Thee. My flesh and my heart faileth, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

Matt. 10:37: He that loveth father or mother more than Me, is not worthy of Me; and he that loveth son or daughter more than Me, is not worthy of me.

John 14:23,24: Jesus answered and said unto him, if a man love Me, he will keep my words...He that loveth Me, keepeth not my sayings.

1 John 5:3: This is the love of God, that we keep his commandments; and his commandments are not grievous..

Assignment: Read Gen. 22 and Heb. 11:17-19: Abraham´s faith is tested.

Discuss: Can falling in love (romantic love) keep one from loving God?
