Driven For Change / Matthew 22:37-40
37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your HEART and with all your SOUL and with all your MIND.’[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘LOVE your neighbor as yourself.’[b] 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
BODY = Your Emotions and Compassion
These are tools that God gave us to navigate through this world and relationships. These tools can change your view of the life you live. Philippians 4:6-7, says to bring our concerns to God and allow his peace and guidance to come to us. To get his peace and guidance we need to know the heart of God and how we should use our emotions, compassion, and feelings in all situations.
SOUL = Your Determination and Will.
The Bible says in 1 Timothy 6:9 that being determined can make us “fall into a trap” of “foolish and harmful desires. Being determined can also propel us into a direction that God wants us to be. When used correctly, your determination and Will will bring peace to your soul knowing that you are living out God's plan for your life.
MIND = Your Thoughts and what you Think.
Romans 8:5-6 says to set the mind on the flesh is death, but, in setting the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. Whatever you think, you will eventually become or be consumed with. Having a vision and making it clear is a need when you are driven for change.
LOVE = Patients and Kindness.
Love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.
