How do you love a person you cannot see? What do you give to someone who has it all? Why is it so important to love the Creator of the galaxies? What does it mean to love God? Jesus taught us that the greatest commandment given to mankind is to love the Lord with all our mind, heart, and strength, and yet what it means to love God can be a profound mystery. Maurice Roberts explains the biblical meaning of love for God and shows how such love moves us to do many things, from thirsting for God to praying for our neighbor’s salvation. He shows that love for God is like a sweet fire that must lift all our hearts, all our souls, all our minds, and all our strength in a holy flame toward God.
“Our culture has it so right and so wrong: love is all we need and resides at the very heart of all that is beautiful and good and true, but in the final analysis, this love is meant for God and is designed to be lavished on Him. Maurice Roberts’s succinct and biblical discussion of these great truths about love is robustly biblical, immensely practical, and at once deeply satisfying and soul-searching.” — Michael A. G.
