To love the Lord is the most important thing that God asks of us. The sum and the substance of everything that God has said is simply to love Him. This has been and will continue to be the central issue of life. The heart of the matter is always the matter of the heart. Hence, loving the lord is the essence of the indispensable characteristic of a person’s relationship with God. The Christian Life consists of our love for the One who is our life—Christ.
"Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God, with all thy heart, and with all they soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and the great commandment."
"Hear, O Israel: the LORD our God is one LORD: And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might."
"O love the LORD, all ye His saints."
"Nevertheless, I have somewhat against thee, because thou has left thy first love."
