If Jesus has your heart, He will have your will. If He has your heart, He will have your emotions, your affections, your intellect. And if He doesn’t have any impact upon your hands, your feet, and eyes and your ears, what you do with your body, then you are deceiving yourself when you say, “Jesus has my heart” because He most certainly does not.
You’re rich in love and You’re slow to anger.
by Joyce Meyer
When Jesus talked about the greatest commandment of all, He quoted Deuteronomy 6:5 and said we are to love God with all our heart. But He also added the second greatest commandment: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. (See Mark 12:31.)
There’s something important here that I think people often miss: You cannot give away something you don’t have in you. How can someone love another person if they don’t love themselves?
We all need to accept ourselves, embrace our personalities and even our imperfections, knowing that although we are not where we need to be, we are making progress. Jesus died for us because we have weaknesses and imperfections, and we don’t have to reject ourselves because of them. God wants us to love ourselves and enjoy how He’s made us!
