When Jesus is confronted by a religious leader who asks him what the greatest commandment is, he responds by saying that the first and greatest commandment is “to love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” Typically, this refrain is summarized by simply saying that we are supposed to love God with everything we have. But what does that mean and look like in our lives?
In Viva! Greatest Commandment, your group will discuss the meaning and applications of each of the elements of our identity that Jesus mentions in the greatest commandment. They will dig into the question of what it means to love God with our whole identity.
Specifically, we will look at the following:
Week 1: Mind
Week 2: Heart
Week 3: Strength
Week 4: Soul
Includes 4 lessons, instructions, and two slide templates for PowerPoint, Keynote, MediaShout, ProPresenter or another display system.
