Jesus understood what He was here to do. Jesus, the Messiah, reminded us of the new plan as He lived it out. It is about loving God with all we’ve got. Moses got it directly from God. Jesus got it directly from God, his Father, as well.
To love God with our whole heart is our mission. It is written on our heart and in the very fabric of our soul.
It is all we should want to think about.
It is all we should want to talk about.
It is all we should want to act on in our relationships.
Deuteronomy 6:4-9 The Message (MSG)
God, our God! God the one and only!
Love God, your God, with your whole heart: love him with all that’s in you, love him with all you’ve got!
Write these commandments that I’ve given you today on your hearts. Get them inside of you and then get them inside your children. Talk about them wherever you are, sitting at home or walking in the street; talk about them from the time you get up in the morning to when you fall into bed at night. Tie them on your hands and foreheads as a reminder; inscribe them on the doorposts of your homes and on your city gates.
