[The lead sheet for this song is here. You may listen to it here.]
God wants me to love Him with all my heart,
And He wants me to love Him with all my mind.
God wants me to love Him with all my strength;
Yes, He wants me to love Him with all my soul.
God wants me to love my neighbor as myself,
And He wants me to love my foe as my friend.
God wants me to love because He first loved me.
About This Song:
This song may be short, but it’s full of Scripture.
He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”
But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you. . .
1 John 4:19:
We love because he first loved us.
(all passages from the New International Version)
It’s ironic that so many people on the far-left are afraid of the Bible, Christianity, and Christians. They think we are the worst of haters, and they may be correct about a minuscule minority. But how can “real” Christians be that way? We became Christians because of the truth in John 3:16…
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him will not perish, but have everlasting life.
We believe in that kind of life, and it requires the kind of love Jesus modeled. He forgave those who were putting Him to death. Can we do anything but love those who hate and condemn us?
