In most areas of life, you start at the bottom and work your way to the top. But when it comes to obeying God’s commandments, you start at the top and work your way down.
There’s something uniquely remarkable about the commandment Jesus called the foremost of all. When you make obeying it your top priority, it helps all your other priorities fall into balance. Similarly, when you obey the greatest commandment, you’ll find the lesser commandments tend to get obeyed right along with it. Obedience of this ultimate commandment is a Christian’s crowning achievement that you never stop achieving. And you’ll never reach your fullest spiritual potential without embracing it.
If you choose to obey it, it requires giving all of yourself and every area of your life up to God; which is why so many people – even highly religious people – would rather obey any other commandment instead of this one. But it’s the key that opens the door to a closer walk with God, and a life of lasting peace.
What does it look and feel like when you love God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength? What are the hallmarks of people who love God above all else? How can you cultivate and nourish that kind of love for God in your own personal relationship with Him? Well, you can start by reading one chapter a day of this book for the next month. It’s a month that could very well change the course of your life.
