- God is a jealous God.
God wants us to love him the way he loves us. God has not set up the world to protect us if we don’t love God. The choice is ours.
God expects your love. If you put someone or something in his place the consequences will come to you.
God will be angry if he is replaced. We are made for God. Don’t get so caught up in this world that we forget God. Without God’s love our lives are nothing.
- Love The Lord Your God
Matthew 22:34-40, Mark 12:28-31, Luke 10:25-28
Love with your whole being.
- Our Reponse to God’s Love
Is your relationship with God the dominating factor in your life? James 4:1-9
Friendship with the world is being an enemy of God. As long as we move with God we remain in relationship with him. When we move away, our relationship is torn. God can repair those tears when we draw near to him.
1 John 2:15-17
Love God totally. Have a spiritual relationship with God. There is an interchange of love between our heart and God. The world can come in and block our vital relationship with God. We must work to keep our relationship with God alive.
1 John 4:20-21
We must love others because God loves us. We can love people who don’t love us back because we have an abundance of love from God. Matthew 5:23
God will teach us to love.
