It’s February – the Love Month!  So, I decided to share with you some of my insights on LOVE, especially on loving with all my heart.

    Loving God with all my heart means loving Him from our innermost being, the central core of who we really are. This is true because at one point in our lives we responded to God’s great love and His call to be partakers of His fellowship. This is when our hearts were connected to His heart and a relationship began. We experience His grace, His kindness, His love and forgiveness, and the sense of security just being in His love. Therefore, our hearts decided that God is our First Love and our First Priority and no one will ever take His place in our lives. Deep within our hearts we decided to know Him better, to love Him more and to commune with Him every single moment of our day because we know He is worthy of our devotion and commitment.

    Loving one’s self with all my heart means believing and redeeming our very worth in Christ! It is not an ego-tripping mania but redeeming the very position God created us in the first place. Yes, sin has ruined us but by His saving grace, the old is gone and the new has come for Christ is continually changing us into His likeness. God loves us and has a wonderful plan for our lives. Don’t settle for less than what God intended it to be!

    Loving others with all my heart means loving others with God’s love because He loves them too and has a wonderful plan for their lives. Just like us, they are recipients of God’s amazing love and His love is inclusive and not exclusive. It also means that if we say we love God then we also love those He loves, no matter who they are. Therefore, loving God means loving others.

    Jesus set this example as written in I John 3: 16-18, “This is how we know how love is: Jesus Christ laid down His life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be on him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but in action and in truth.”
    Let us ask this question then, ”Am I loving with all my heart?”
