Ibigin mo ang Panginoon mong Diyos nang buong puso, buong kaluluwa, buong pag-iisip at buong lakas.”

Marcos 12:30

Naalala mo ba noong una kang na in love? Palagi mo siyang iniisip, inaalala, at bukambibig mo siya sa mga kaibigan mo. Halos lahat ng gusto niya ay ginugusto mo rin. Gusto mong lagi siyang kasama, kausap, at kung pwede lang, makasama forever. Masarap magmahal, ‘no? Pero naranasan mo na ba ang the greatest love of all time?

Ang Diyos mismo ang pag-ibig (1 John 4:16) at una Niya tayong minahal (v. 19). He established His covenant, a relationship, to the Israelites and those who received Jesus as their Lord (Genesis 17:7; Exodus 6:7; John 1:12). At kahit tumalikod ang mga ito sa Kanya, He is faithful and sealed this through Jesus Christ (Romans 5:8). So what is the best way to respond to this kind of love?

Sabi ni Jesus, “Ibigin mo ang Panginoon mong Diyos nang buong puso, buong kaluluwa, buong pag-iisip at buong lakas” (Marcos 12:30). This means to put Him first. Kilalanin at sambahin Siya. To live like His Son and to live for Him. To desire Him, His Word, and His character. Ang sumunod sa Kanyang mga utos at mahalin ang lahat ng Kanyang minamahal. Malawak ang pagmamahal na hinihingi ng Panginoon sa Kanyang mga tagasunod. After all, the greatest command to love Him is not a to-do list but an invitation to have a personal intimate relationship with God.

Have you accepted Christ as your Lord and your Savior? Kung oo, God is inviting you to have a deeper relationship with Him. Kung hindi pa, inaanyayahan Ka ng Panginoon na maranasan ang greatest love of all time at simulan ito sa pagtanggap kay Jesus Christ sa buhay mo. Pwede mong sundan ang panalangin na ito:

Lord, I am a sinner at kailangan ko si Jesus upang ako’y iligtas mula sa penalty ng mga kasalanan ko. Tinatanggap ko si Jesus bilang aking Tagapagligtas at Panginoon.
