Why? Because when Jesus was asked to identify the most important commandment, this is what he said:
Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.
This is the first and greatest commandment.
And the second is like it: love your neighbor as yourself.
We love God because He is the Creator, Sustainer, and Savior. He made us. He cares for us. And, through Jesus, He provides the path to redemption for everyone who believes.
We love you because God loves you. He doesn’t ask you to be perfect first. He loves you just the way you are. We do too.
