What does it mean to Love God?

Dallas Willard died last week.  His last public teaching was held at a conference in February 2013.

During one of the sessions Dallas explained loving God with all your heart, mind, soul and strength (the first commandment) as:

Loving God with your heart (ie your will) - Devoting your will to what is good for God
Loving God with your mind - Devoting your thoughts and feelings to what is good for God

That is worth thinking about, starting to figure out what it would look like for each of us, and then taking first steps in that direction.

The videos can be seen online for the next few weeks at
