“We preach Christ crucified”
1 Corinthians 1:23

Thou Shalt Love The Lord

From Luke 10:27

Until I understood what Jesus had bought for me on the cross, I used to read this verse and my heart would sink.  I knew this is what God expected of me, but the harder I tried to fulfill this command, the more I failed.  It wasn’t until I understood that I am (as a born of the Spirit believer) dead to sin and alive to God, that I then realized (by faith) that to live like this was really possible, because God Himself had made it possible, by dying for me.  I am now capable of loving God the way He deserves.  It is a love relationship enabled by Jesus’ death on the cross.

Thou Shalt Love The Lord

Thou shalt love the Lord
Thy God with all thy heart
And with all thy soul
And with all thy strength
And with all thy mind
And thy neighbor as thyself
Thou shalt love the Lord, thy God
