Luke 10:27 NKJV
So he answered and said, “ ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,’ and ‘your neighbor as yourself.
What does it mean to love the Lord with all my strength? Is it the physical strength, muscle power that I have as an individual? If that is the case then the body builders and those who train with weights have an advantage over us because they have more physical strength that the majority.
To love God with all your strength has more to do with your giftings, talents, personality and even finances regardless of the amount than with physical strength.
Have you ever used one of those strength finder tests to find out what your strengths are? We should use those strengths to serve God because in serving him then we are demonstrating our love for him. The bible tells us that whatever we find to do then we should do it with all our might as unto the Lord.
Think about the natural talents that we are born with, they differ from one person to another and all of them can be used to serve and love God. By using that natural talent to serve humanity in the name of Christ or using that natural ability to tell others about God and his great love for us then you are loving God with your strength.
What about the gifts of the Holy Spirit? We are instructed to use them to build one another and to serve one another because in doing so then we are loving God for remember you cannot claim to love God who you cannot see yet you fail to love your fellow brother or sister whom you can see.
What are some of the things you are good at, what are your strengths?
How are you using them to love God?
What about the strength in your pocket? How are you using that to love God?
