068: How to Love God (Part 1)

Dec 13, 2018 | Christian Living, Philosophy, Podcast, Theology

Have you ever thought about the incomprehensibility of finite creatures like you me loving the infinite, eternal God of all glory?

It’s amazing to think that God loves us; but how do we love him? Is it even possible?
Using insights from the Bible, philosophy, and even science, we’re embarking on an in-depth study to find the answer to the question of how to love God.

In Luke 10, Jesus affirms the response of a religious lawyer who quotes the Hebrew Bible’s teaching on the matter: “And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself” (Luke 10:27).

In the coming weeks, we’ll explore the heart, soul, strength, and mind. And, today’s lesson will provide deep introductory insight into each notion. But more than anything, this lesson will establish what is meant by the word “love.”

What sort of “love” is it that a finite, created being can give to an infinite, uncreated God? Listen in to this week’s show to find out.

In this lesson, you’ll learn:

  1. How God has given us way to love him that is based on his own nature.
  2. The significance of being made in the image of God.
  3. The four meanings of the word “love” and how we can use sacrificial love to love God.
