Life Principles for Living out the Greatest Commandment is written for the one who wants to know how to love God completely. Too often this high calling sounds exceedingly difficult for the average believer. Settling for mediocrity in Christ and half-hearted devotion, instead, is the standard. In this eight-week study women discover obedience to the Greatest Commandment is not an impossible feat, but a natural response to a God who loves the unlovable, the unfaithful, the mistake-laden, and the average halfhearted pursuer. Participants learn to discern differences between simply loving God with some affections and loving Him wholly by investigate Biblical characters that succeeded, as well as those who failed miserably, allowing circumstances, fears, and shortcomings to hinder them in undaunted pursuit. Readers gain insight for avoiding traps and snares set by the Enemy in their own lives by studying the lives of others and through practical present day applications. Because the call is to love God, not only wholeheartedly, but also with all the mind, soul, and strength, each way of wholly loving God is investigated.
Interwoven throughout the study is the invitation to embrace how deeply readers are loved by the Father and to reject the notion that loving God completely is impossible for real women with very real shortcomings. Inspired to reach beyond themselves toward the Father’s hand, women will gain a deeper understanding of what their lives could be like loving God with all of their heart, soul, mind, and strength.
