A mountain man in India. This man has only heard the name of Jesus in his village for the first time just recently.
This word is for him and for me, for we were all created in His image…
Luke 10:27 “Love the lord your God with all your heart, mind, soul and strength.”
Heart: From the deepest place of truth expressed in the inner part of man.. resulting in care of the richest kind with the purest emotion.
Mind: The place of intellect, wisdom and understanding. The place that hungers to learn more about who God is and what He has done and what He has planned. Where we ponder His mighty deeds, the creation and wonder at His beauty, innocence and holiness.
Soul: The sum of your eternal self. The part of you thats hardest to understand because it’s not your flesh, but the image of God in you. The part of you that knows you were made for more than this world has shown you. The part that lies awake in the middle of the night and prays to the Father for all of life to be restored to what it was meant to be in the garden. The part that longs to walk with Him in the cool of the day.
Strength: The hands of action and movement. Putting love into motion.. for the things that God loves, His children. To love Him with all your strength is to let His love move you. It’s to lift the burdens.. and move the obstacles out of way for you and others.
