"devotion" Tagged Sermons
Jesus said that the act of worship recorded in the focal passage would be spoken of wherever the gospel is preached. That’s a very strong statement, which Jesus certainly didn’t make lightly. But it isn’t what was done that captured our Lord’s attention. It was what motivated the action that made the difference. And it’s this motivation that should challenge every follower of Christ.
When asked to give the greatest commandment, Jesus answered with a first and second. His simple message was that we are called to love God and love others. We’re to love God with our heart, soul, mind, and strength. This means our love and devotion for God will encompass all that we are. Our human relationships should also exhibit a “no holds barred” care and concern.
