VIDEO The Equation of Love

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind…. Love your neighbor as yourself. Matthew 22:37, 39, NIV

Infinity. Ten. Two. One.

That’s the biblical equation for love. It begins with the limitless, boundless, bottomless, depthless love of an eternal God (1 John 4:8). He loves with infinite love. Then in seeking to show us how we should love, He gave us ten great commandments. The first four show us how to love Him, and the last six show us how to love each other (Exodus 20:1-17).

Jesus boiled it down to two great commands—to love the Lord our God with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength—and to love our neighbors as ourselves (Matthew 22:37, 39).

And when we combine the two, we come up with one word—love.

But it’s not just any kind of love. It’s not the love found in the pop songs or romance novels. It’s not the love of the world. God’s love is agape—self-sacrificing, self-giving, others-centered, and God-honoring. When we discover this, we learn something. The overwhelming priority of our life is love. Show someone God’s love today.

Where love is, God is. Henry Drummond
