Love of God

Love of God and love of neighbor are connected; they do not give to separate. Nevertheless, they are different. Even the rate seems different. We are to love God, above all, our neighbor as ourselves. However, to be able to love God truly, above all, the virtue of love must grow, go through various degrees of perfection.

There are two boundaries to this development: habitual and current love for God. Slovak imitation of these Latin scholastic words would sound unsuccessful; therefore, we prefer to keep them in their wording ingrained. He who does not think of God loves God, but he does nothing fundamentally against the love of God, he does not commit great sins. Thus, the little ones live in God’s love children after baptism, so a lot of adult life takes place Christians. Currently, God who loves God, is still being decided for him; he is still dealing with it. It is completely and perfectly possible only in heaven. Here on earth, man’s perfection is somewhere between the two boundaries according to how it is given to whom and how it seeks to do so. Habitual love for God, as theologians say, is enough for salvation. In this is the hope of all good people, who do no greater evil, but seldom think of God.they may have misconceptions about it. Their thinking and their proceedings are not exactly in full compliance. To make us better internally united, the liturgy encourages us daily by calling:

“More hearts!” We already have as much mind as possible to dwell with the one we all meet in eternity. At however, this idea cannot be clear in daily work God’s love and human love and certain. We cannot think of two things at once. For that, the saints sought to transform in them the love of God into a kind of constant unquenchable feeling, a sort of dominance in harmony with the complex psychological structure of our consciousness and subconscious. It is not easy to analyze properties this “feeling” of constant love for God. However, Scaramelli advises strengthening, in particular, its three elements:

1. love in God (amor complacentiae), 2. Benevolence to all that is God’s (amour benevolentiae), 3. God’s right of priority in dealing with the questions of life (amorpraeferentiae).

The feeling of love grows together with the feeling of cohesion, of belonging. Every mother is happy to be praised by a child. The success of a son is also her success because they belong together. The history of the Old Testament is a beautiful example of such a love in God. The glory of the LORD was the same with victory and the strength of the Jewish army. How often are you here; there is a cry, “The Lord our God!” They felt God like something really your own. This thought should also permeate our lives, so that we may begin to enjoy all the successes of God’s kingdom and all our failures to ache as if it were our personal joy or sorrow. Congratulations to a friend are manifested by the fact that we are still willing to do anything for him. We secure him usually with the following words: “Just call if you need something, and I’ll leave everything else. » God, in the true sense of the word, he needs nothing from us. The only in which this attitude can be applied is «external glory, God.» By this word, we mean everything that leads to the full realization of God’s kingdom on earth. Onto God sends people. He who loves him answers the simple God’s command in the words of Isaiah: Behold; I am here, send me! (Is 6.8).


For those who are not a true saint, it seems an impossible challenge to love God more than anything.others. With subtle irony, this objection is reflected in the words of the folk song: “If I loved God so much, as I love you, I would be holy as angels long ago from heaven.” A strict preacher of morals will necessarily label this amorous sigh as blasphemy (blasphemy). And yet life is different, in a worse but better way. Emotionally most people love anything other than God with enthusiasm. Fortunately, even those who are, as they say, up to their ears in love, have not all lost their heads so that they cannot give priority to God’s law if they come into conflict. With a “love” for something else. For public transport priority right of the main road or the oncoming vehicle a message. Figuratively speaking, God is still coming to our lives from the right; his laws are moving in the main ways. So they still take precedence over everyone’s other interests, even if we are very enthusiastic hurried elsewhere. The more the driver gets into the blood sense for priority on the road, the safer it rides. And on the road, life is a guarantee of safety to respect the priority of God’s interests.
