God is totally other, totally out of our league — the infinite, transcendent Creator — and yet He came courting us in the person of Jesus Christ, knocking at our door, wooing and calling us. He took the initiative and entered into a covenant relationship, betrothed us to Himself, paying the ultimate dowry (His sacrificial death). What is our response? Too often such love is met with indifference and distraction. Matthew 22:34-40 is the appropriate response, calling us back to God as first love, inviting us into a renewed relationship, a fresh encounter with Him!
