Many has the misunderstandings about loving God, what really means to love God


#2

To love God is to put Him first. The number-one commandment is to love God “with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength” (Mark 12:30). It’s an undivided love. God is our priority. If we love God with all our hearts, souls, minds, and strength, then we won’t allow other things to crowd in. Our love for God is manifested by loving people (Mark 12:31), but we do not love the things of the world. “Earth has nothing I desire besides you” (Psalm 73:25). We cannot love this present world and God at the same time (1 John 2:15); love for what the world offers can lead us astray (2 Timothy 4:10).


#3

Loving God means simply listen to him 1 john 5: 3 In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, God is a speaking God He never quit speaking because his word is eternal, so what he speaks he speaks who he is and what king of Being he is, what he likes and what he dislikes…He created us to listen Him…so God created us to Listen Him…when we listen God more and more that is what loving God


#4

To love God is to desire Him, to yearn for His righteousness, His Word, and His grace. “As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God” (Psalm 42:1). Once we have tasted and seen that the Lord is good (Psalm 34:8), we want more of Him. If we love God, we will be like Mary of Bethany, “who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said” (Luke 10:39). If we love God, the psalmist’s description of the Word of God will resonate within us: “[it is] more precious than gold, than much pure gold; . . . sweeter than honey, than honey from the comb” (Psalm 19:10).


#5

to love God is to obey Him. Jesus tells us, “If you love me you will obey what I command” (John 14:15, 23; 15:10; 1 John 5:3). However, this is not a matter of merely following rules and registering good deeds. It is about having God’s love written indelibly on our hearts. We naturally wish to please those we love. When we love God, we will want to please Him and obey
His commands eagerly. “I delight to do your will” (Psalm 40:8).


#6

God is Love, the Love is the essence of God, so love must be shared …so he created us as a recipient of His Love, so we must receive His love, always receiving his love and and knowing His love and experiencing his deep true love for us that is we can show the love for God
