When God revealed what He wanted us to concentrate on in 2018, the words ALL IN were not words at all.

Love as described in the Bible is quite different from the love espoused by the world. Biblical love is selfless and unconditional, whereas the world’s love is characterized by selfishness.

Strength means more than just your physical ability; it also means, “ability, might, power, and strength – literally and figuratively.”

Love the Lord your God with all your mind. Mind … this means the exercise of your mind. Your understanding. So God is specifically saying He would like you to love Him with every exercise of your mind.

Soul is the essence of a person. A conscious decision to love comes from the soul. It is not emotional love but a personal decision to prioritize the other person’s feelings.
