What is most important to you?

What is the most important thing in your life? Perhaps it is your family? Your spouse? Your job? How do you know you have made the right choice in your priorities? What if there were something else that is more important, but you have, for some reason, overlooked it?

The only one who truly knows what should be important to us is our creator. He is the one who made us, so He knows what is best for us and how we should prioritize in life.

As Christians, we believe the Son of God Jesus Christ (His Hebrew name being Yeshua) created everything (John 1.) So if He created everything, including you and me, we all know and understand He is the only one able to tell us how to prioritize. He, as our creator, is the only one who knows what is truly important to us.

In Mark 12:29, Yeshua tells us this the most important thing is to remember Yehovah is our God, Yehovah is one. Then He says, in the next verse, we are to love Yehovah our God with all our mind, all our heart and all our strength.

According to Yeshua, our jobs, our spouses, our children, Yeshua Himself, and our family should never be on the top of our list of how to prioritize in life. Instead, we are to make it our priority to love Yehovah, our God, and remember He is one.

Did you catch what He is not saying? He is not saying we are to love Him Yeshua and serve Him Yeshua. He is not saying we are to worship Him, serve Him, and make it our priority to have Him as our God.

He says this: We should make it our priority to remember Yehovah, our God is one God. We should make it our priority to love Yehovah, our God above everything else.

Why, then, does Christianity seem to disagree with what Yeshua is saying here? According to Christianity, the most important thing is to love Yeshua, to believe in Him instead of His Father Yehovah.

If we really believe Yeshua is God’s Son, what He says should take precedence in our lives, even if it means setting aside Christian doctrine.

Do you know how to love Yehovah? How you answer that question determines if you are righteous or not.

If you do not know how to love Him, you are living in sin. If you do not agree with what Yeshua is saying here in Mark 12:30-31, you live in sin. Why? Because 1. John 3 says rebellion and disobedience against the Torah is a sin. In Ex 20:2-4, the Torah states that we are forbidden to worship and love any other God than Yehovah. So if you do not know how to love Yehovah and do not worship Yehovah, you live in sin.

How do you love Yehovah?

In Mark 12:30-31, Yeshua quotes Deut 6:4-5. In Deut 6, loving Yehovah is said to be the same thing as obeying His Torah. This is what Yeshua says in John 14 if you love Him, you will abide by His Torah. According to Yeshua, in John 14, loving His Father Yehovah and obeying His Torah is the only way to love Yeshua.

The sad thing is that most Christians believe the Torah does no longer applies to them. They think the Torah was done away with at the cross, but they confess to love Jesus. As we have seen, their confession is empty. It is an impossibility to love Him if you reject His Torah. This is one reason why so many Christians end up in hell (Matt 7:21-23)

What is most important in your life?

By now, I hope your answer would be to love Yehovah, your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind. And I hope you now know how to love Him by obeying His Torah.

I also want to teach you what the Bible really says about your life as a Christian, and I want to do it for free. I have hundreds of free sermons you can access 24/7

The Bible says, in 1.Cor 9, when I teach, pray, and prophecy to you for free, you should give a donation in return. If you choose to receive free ministry, but not give anything, you are sinning against God.

The only time you are, according to the Bible, allowed not to give anything is if you have to choose between giving and meeting your own needs. The Bible says, your needs have priority.

98% of all the people I minister never to give anything in return, and most of them are unable to give. If they gave, it would mean they would have anything to eat that day, and I am more than happy to minister to them for free. But then some dont have to choose between giving and meeting your needs. You can give, but you choose not to, and that is a sin. I will never know who you are, but Yehovah knows.
