Faithful Fridays~Love God With Everything

Faithful Fridays is a day where christians can share there faith, a song, a bible verse, a bible study that you are working through or anything that God has put on your heart to share. You can go to Joy's blog Doodle Bug to get the rules and picture.

Last night at youth we learnt about loving God with everything you got. The verse we were looking at was...
  And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.
Mark 12:30
We learnt about each one (heart, soul, mind, and strength) and what it means.
  • Heart
It means to show/prove your love for God and loving Him above EVERYTHING else. It means that you can't just say you love Him and then not read your Bible and pray but go to some party doing stuff that is just plain wrong. But you have to show that you love Him by the way you act and speak and do stuff pleasing to Him.
Therefore you shall love the Lord your God, and keep His charge, His statutes, His judgments, and His commandments always.
Deuteronomy 11:1
  • Soul
It means to show love with emotion. You know how some people just start crying when singing a worship song or lifting their hands, that is showing you love God with emotion. But you don't have to do it that way because there is other ways to do it.
My soul longs, yes, even faints
For the courts of the Lord;
My heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.
Psalm 84:2
  • Mind
It means you have to think about God and learn about Him. You have to believe everything He says. Because if you think  and learn about things not pleasing to Him then how can you learn about God and see how awesome He is.
You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You.
Isaiah 26:3
  • Strength
It means to use physical energy to show that you love God. Showing Him that you will do anything even if it hurts you to show that you love Him.
I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD;
I will make mention of Your righteousness, of Yours only.
Psalm 71:16
Jesus went all in for us by dying on the cross so that we can go to Heaven. He showed more love than possible. So we should try more to go all in for Him and show Him that we love Him.
God bless you,
