Jesus did not come to help us say and do religion better. He came to connect us permanently with His passionate love. Our primary purpose in life is not task oriented; it is love oriented. Jesus redeemed us to participate in a divine romance, celebrating strong affections with everlasting parameters.
Loving God requires All our Strength
Properly understood, the love of God evokes an endearing response. His passion inspires us to reciprocate with ardent fascination. Instead of pandering to our weakness, Jesus brings the best out of us. His love focuses all our strength with favor, respect, and anticipation.
[Jesus] answered and said, “’You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,’ and ‘your neighbor as yourself.’ …do this and you will live.” (Luk 10:27-28)
