It means nothing less than to love Him with everything we are and what makes us a person. To start with, we entrust Him with our lives and He changes 35 our priorities concerning Him. Whether riches or splendid job prospects, things like these can no longer be the focal points in our lives. From now on, it is God Who takes preeminence. To love God also extends to trusting His Word and to accepting it as true and mandatory. You might not understand everything at once. If you love the Lord, however, you trust Him that He will lead you in these matters also, so that gradually, you will gain understanding and wisdom.
This is the reason He did not abolish the Law. He established it. And what if we go wrong in employing God’s Commandments? Then, we may take all our weakness to Jesus; the One Who shed His blood for our sins at the Cross of Calvary. I’d like to close with a passage from Psalm 119: “Blessed are they whose ways are blameless, who walk according to the law of the LORD. Blessed are they who keep his statutes and seek him with all their heart. They do nothing wrong; they walk in his ways. You have laid down precepts that are to be fully obeyed.
God provides the way out of this dilemma: He blesses everybody who turns to Him with His divine love. In his letter to the Romans, Paul puts it this way: “God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit” (5:5). What does that mean? Every person who was privileged to start a new life with God carries God’s love in his heart. It is this love that God is willing to give us in His grace that enables us to love Him. Unless God has given us His love, we are not capable of loving Him. Once He does, we are indeed able to return His love and fulfill, what Jesus calls, the “first and greatest commandment”.
