This is Part 2 of my study of The Jesus Creed: Loving God, Loving Others by Scot McKnight. Part 1 can be found here.
"Our love for God is sacred.
We are to love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength.
Love is sacred because genuine love is total in its commitment.
Compromises of love can crush the heart, darken the day, and harden the arteries of trust.
Our love for God is truly sacred when we surrender to him totally.
Sacred love transforms our speech.
Sacred love converts our acts.
Our Abba father is impeccably pure, majestically marvelous, and embarrassingly faithful in his love for us. It is this good sense of embarrassment that evokes repentance from us, and helps us to see our violations of love against God and others as sin.
Sacred love converts acts of sin to acts of love.
Sacred love inspires our worship."
