WHAT DOES “ALL” LOOK LIKE?

everydaylifeREFERENCE
Matthew 22:37,38 [ESV]And he said to him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the great and first commandment.
Matthew 22:37,38 [Message] Jesus said, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence.’ 38 This is the most important, the first on any list.”

EXPLORATION

Eugene Peterson in the Message seems to have taken the verse a little deeper, telling us to love the Lord not just with all our heart but with all our passion. Not just to love the Lord with all our soul but with prayer. Not just to love the Lord with all our mind but with intelligence. I’m wondering if we can’t take it even a little deeper.
Let’s not just love the Lord with all our heart and passions, let’s feel Him.
Let’s not just love the Lord with all our soul  and prayer, let’s sense Him.
Let’s not just love the Lord with all our mind and intelligence, let’s experience Him.

APPLICATION

As we touch another life, we experience His touch. Feel Him
When we pray, let’s wait upon the Lord, let Him talk more than we do. Sense Him.
When we meet needs with deeds, we experience Him.

PRAYER

Jesus said, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence.’  This is the most important, the first on any list.”
Holy Spirit get me there today.
Get me to “all”!
