Loving God with All Your Heart: A Daily Devotion

Scripture Reading: Matthew 22:37-38 (NIV) – “Jesus replied: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment.”


The greatest commandment given to us by Jesus is to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, and mind. This commandment encapsulates the essence of our relationship with God and serves as the foundation for our faith journey.

To love God with all our heart means to devote the entirety of our being to Him. It involves a wholehearted commitment to God, characterized by passion, devotion, and allegiance. Loving God with all our heart requires surrendering our will and desires to His perfect plan, trusting in His goodness and sovereignty.

Furthermore, loving God with all our soul speaks to the depth of our affection and devotion to Him. It is a love that emanates from the very core of our being, transcending mere emotions or feelings. Loving God with all our soul involves nurturing a vibrant and intimate relationship with Him, cultivating a deep sense of spiritual intimacy and communion.

Lastly, loving God with all our mind calls us to engage our intellect and understanding in our devotion to Him. It entails a commitment to knowing God deeply through the study of His Word, prayer, and meditation. Loving God with all our mind involves aligning our thoughts and beliefs with His truth, allowing His Word to shape and renew our minds.

As we reflect on Matthew 22:37-38, let us examine our hearts and consider the depth of our love for God. Are we truly loving God with all our heart, soul, and mind, or are we allowing other priorities to take precedence? Let us recommit ourselves to loving God wholeheartedly, seeking to glorify Him in all that we do.


Heavenly Father, thank you for the gift of your love and for calling us to love you with all our heart, soul, and mind. Help us to deepen our love for you each day, surrendering ourselves completely to your will and purposes. May our lives be a reflection of our love for you, bringing glory and honor to your name. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
