The Premier Commandment

On the surface it sounds counter-intuitive that God would command us to love Him. Forced affection of any kind can be manufactured and superficial. In this message we see that Jesus reminded his followers that obedience to the first commandment given to Moses, “...have no other gods before” the One, True God, is made evident by a love for God. A love for God produces an obedience to God. The Old Testament references make it clear: a person without a desire to honor God (disobedience) was without love for God and therefore, without God Himself. Faithful followers of Jesus who desire to love Him with all their heart will make pleasing him their highest priority.
