Being a Christian must be lived in every aspect of our lives. To love God with all our strength means to love God with everything that we do.

We are not only to love God with all our heart, we are to love him with all your soul and all our mind.

The soul speaks of our emotions. To love God with all our soul means that our love for God ought to be passionate. When we think of love we think of passion.

How is this love relationship to be worked out? There are many similarities with other love affairs, (yes I know it’s not exactly the same as falling in love with a partner!)  
Jesus gives us four ways to work it out: with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind and all your strength.

Love is not easy to define! It may be the topic that is the most thought about, written about, talked about, dreamt about and sung about. It has been called the “thing that makes the world go round” and "a many splendored thing" - and many more. The love story has been written about in poetry, in songs, in literature, in novels and for movies.
