Love For Self

The two great commands are to love God with all your heart, mind, soul, strength and loving others as yourself.

It is self-evident that we do all things within the confines of the self. To love God is to love ourselves, and to love ourselves is to love God. We are a reflection of God, created in his image and likeness, we are.

Loving others is loving God. Your neighbor reflects God and is the bearer of his divine nature; love him as you would God, love him as you would yourself.

God the eternal chooses to make his abode in us. We are his temple, in which he is glorified. In him, we exist and have our being. We were in him before the creation, chosen and set apart for his purpose and glory.

Let love be the cords that bind us now and forevermore.


Psalm: 1 of DFG

  1. Woe is me; I am a prisoner to my past, and the burden of my actions weighs me down to the grave, while death lurks for my soul to surrender.
  2. My yesterdays are full of regrets and sorrow, and my tomorrow tinged with fear.
  3. In tears, I beheld my condition. And my spirit hungered and thirsted.
  4. Who will redeem me and restore me to my intended state?
  5. Somewhere, I heard of a savior who gave life to that which was dead, and in desperation, I called upon his name.
  6. In love, he answered and gifted me my freedom. Now my yesterdays are his, and my tomorrow is secured.
  7. By faith, I have been divinely adopted and transformed from a wretched son of man to a son of the Most-High One.
  8. Amazing Grace, how sweet a victory won. Now I live by faith and hope in the unseen.

In the beginning, God!

Romans 1:20 ESV: For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
Isaiah 48:13 ESV: My hand laid the foundation of the earth, and my right hand spread out the heavens; when I call to them, they stand forth together.

His Spirit created everything by his word. There is an intelligence at the core of every creation, coded in his expression. Evident by the code embedded in the DNA at the cellular level. This same intelligence is present in every element known to man. His consciousness, which uttered matter into existence, resides at the sub-atomic and quantum realm—intelligent design for an omniscient creator.

Psalm 8:3-4 ESV: When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?
Genesis 1:27 ESV: So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
Psalm 139:15 ESV: My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
Psalm 139:14 ESV: I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.
