Loving God means loyalty to Christ as Lord alone in every area of our lives. As we contemplate the new year, these three questions will help us evaluate our commitment to Christ:
1. Am I willing to follow Jesus even if it costs me something?
2. Am I willing to believe whatever God says, regardless of how I feel about it?
3. Am I willing to put what is right above what works?
When Jesus was asked this question in Matthew 22:34-46, He responded, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind." For Christians, loving God means loyalty to Christ alone in every area of our lives.
