Do I Desire to Love God?
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.” Matt. 22:37, 38
“This is to the other commands as the needle to the thread – it draws all after it.” Rev. Samuel Annesley (Augustine’s metaphor)
“To love God is so indispensable, that, let me with reverence say, God cannot dispense with it. As God first bestows His love upon us before any other gift, and then, whatever He gives afterwards, He gives it in love: so God requires that we first give Him our hearts, our love, and then do all we do out of love to God.” Rev. Samuel Annesley
Maybe this will be a help for some.
