The following messages deal with how God desires us to pursue love with Him as well as our marriages, our relationships with our children, the household of God and with unbelievers as well.
1 Corinthians 13:1-2 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become as sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.

In this series of messages you will see God's ultimate desire for our lives above all else is that we would truly learn how to love Him and one another more than any other aspect of our lives in Him. This is major part of fulfilling our calling. Without love we are nothing. Love is the glue that holds everything together. Learning how to love God and others is the great commandment.
Matthew 22:36-38 "Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?" Jesus said to him, " 'You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.' "This is the first and great commandment.
Luke 10:27 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.' "

If we fail to love God in each of these areas we become unbalanced in our love towards God and it shows in our relationships with the people God has put in our lives.
For example if you love God with a strength of mind and the weakness of emotion you will become an intellectualist and a legalist in your approach to God and others.
If you love Him with a strength of emotion and weakness of mind you will be a sentimentalist in religion, governed by your feelings which will be expressed in an excess of affection or sentiment.
If you love Him with a strength of will and a weakness of emotion you will be a man of iron who is not very approachable.
When we love God with all of our strength of emotion, strength of will, physical strength, and strength of mind, we will be Christians, who have a balanced strength of character, who are truly loving God as He has commanded us to.
