Jesus Christ sums up the Old Testament 10 Commandments.

Matthew 22:37-38  [Jesus said] You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.  This is the first and greatest commandment.  (NLT)

This has been called the purpose statement of God's plan for humanity.  Tony Evans says as a Christ-follower, you were made to love God.  "In everything you do and in every area of your life:  neighborhood, workplace, church, school, and community you are to strive for excellence for the love of God.  Love for God, is above all, the thing that matters."

Someone said living successfully as a Christ-follower means growing in the Lord and being mature.  This enables you to be led by the Spirit in every area of life.  How does this process of "growing up" in Christ begin?  By a desire to know and love God.
