Bible Text: Matthew 22:34-40 |


Before God gave us any commandments, He introduced Himself.  He's a personal, relational God who is "for you", (Romans 8:31-32).  He delivered the Israelites from  slavery, and later sent Jesus to forgive us, (I John 4:10).  He is unique, one, unlike any other!  Because of this God can command our exclusive love, worship and loyalty.  Jews repeated Deuteronomy 6:5 twice a day as a way to stay vigilant in loving God above all else.
