Love God

28 One of the teachers of religious law was standing there listening to the debate. He realized that Jesus had answered well, so he asked, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?”
29 Jesus replied, “The most important commandment is this: ‘Listen, O Israel! The Lord our God is the one and only Lord. 30 And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.’[g] 31 The second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[h] No other commandment is greater than these  - Mark 12

Jesus summarizes the entire old testament into two commandments.

Love God 
Love your Neighbor

Regarding loving your Neighbor Jesus follows up with a story about the good Samaritan. 
(Luke 10:29-37)  

So how do we Love God then.. 

And many Christians think they love God only by going to church. Going to church on a Sunday can be a good start but your loving God should also continue on Monday, Tuesday...and  all Days. 

So how do you Love God? One way to love somebody is to love what they love. So in a way if you love what God loves, you can love him. The question then becomes, what does God love? Well, think about it...search the scriptures...ask God...
