Taking a look at the Old Testament: Deuteronomy

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart” (Deuteronomy 6:5).

Before our love for God, there is always his love for us.

His love for us is, always, so much greater than our love for him.

We must never think about how much we love God.

The moment we start thinking like this, we start to forget what we really are – sinners who need to be saved by God’s grace.

Again and again, we must think of how much God loves us.

When we think of his love for us, there arises, in our hearts, a stronger desire to love him.

When we hear the call to a real love for God, let us never forget this: our love for God can never be anything more than a response to his love for us.
