Devotional Thought:
And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.” Luke 10:27

This verse in Scripture tells the words of Christ given to an expert in the Law of Judaism. This expert in the Law tried to ensnare Jesus in a trap that might pit Jesus against the God of the universe and discredit Jesus as the Messiah. The question was What must I do to get into heaven? The answer that Jesus gives in this verse is the same as the 1st commandment from the Law known to us as the 10 Commandments.
This verse serves as the bridge to Commandments 4-10 summarized in one of the most well-known parables in the Bible, known as the Good Samaritan.

In these words Jesus declares to the expert in the Law to submit himself to God and practice love to his fellow country man just as he wanted to be loved by others. The response by Jesus demands that this man begin to rethink what he is doing with his life. The words “You shall love” were words this expert knew. It meant his central being, his heart, his thoughts or feelings of the mind were to be in submission to the Supreme Authority of the universe. The words “your God” was a challenge to the man who proclaimed this Supreme Deity was his God, because he would have to give his central being (heart), his very breath or spirit (soul), his force and ability (strength), and the core from which understanding comes (mind) completely to God.
The result is a life lived in complete faith and devotion to God that flows into blessings for others. To say I love God is to live in worship of God with every fiber, thought, imagination, feeling, and desire in submission to my Master. Consider whom you call your God, and see if you are living in complete submission to the One who demands that every part of yourself be given to Him and His purposes.
