Hiding God’s Word in Your Heart {Scripture Saturday}

8:57 AM

love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength

By Sandra Wyatt

Welcome to Scripture Saturday! Today we continue our memorization of verses found in Mark with Mark 12:30…

This was an absolute requirement - the first commandment of all!

God was to be loved…

with all our heart - with the inmost part of us. Here is where our character is found, motivation, causes, wants, desires, will. God wants to be loved with all the heart so that no part of our essential being is not focused on Him.

with all our soul - our personality, our makeup, the part of us that expresses us…God is to be loved, preferred, and served with all of our expressive capacities.

with all our mind - our ability to understand, perceive, comprehend, think. God is to be loved with all of the mind, so that He is the One that we meditate upon, contemplate, and think about.

with all our strength - our might, our ability. Because all ability is given by God, it is to be given back to Him, loving and preferring Him above all else – for He is above all.

To love God with heart, soul, mind and strength is to love God with all that we are.
Have a precious and blessed day everyone!
