How can a man love God?

How can a man love God?

Mark 12:30(KJV) - And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

God is the embodiment of Love! His standards are higher than we can imagine. What can mere humans possibly offer Him that would satisfy His desire for love? Let's look at that today.

This is the third installment in our study of  The Four Pillars of The Cracked Door Foundation. Today, we'll focus on Pillar #3 - Obeying God's directions.

John 14:15(AMP) - If you [really] love Me, you will keep (obey) My commands.

Obedience

I once heard a man say that his wife spells love as T-I-M-E. Well, for God it's O-B-E-D-I-E-N-C-E. He places a very high value on our willingness to do what He says. He sees right through any outward, emotional displays of love and judges our hearts.

There's a famous quote from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's last speech before he died. He said, "I just wanna do God's Will...." Every time I hear that it really touches my heart. How much simpler can it be put? I just want to do God's Will.

Matthew 22:36-40(NLT) - “Teacher, which is the most important commandment in the law of Moses?” Jesus replied, “‘You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.”

Jesus made it clear that at the top of the list of commandments is LOVE. How can a man show God Love? Obey His commandments. What is His most important commandment? Love! Why not show someone some love today? In that way, you're showing love to God. He would really appreciate that.
