Loving God Empowers Loving Others

with Ron Deal | November 13, 2018

Love the Lord God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength, and love your neighbor as yourself. Notice the relationship between these two commands of Jesus. You can't care for others unless you're caught up in a love relationship with God. The heavenly relationship empowers the earthly one. Ask yourself, "How do I love this person out of love for God?" That recalibrates your motives and gets your heart in the right posture. Loving God is the source to loving others.
