The command, “love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind and strength and your neighbor as yourself” is not just a command but our true purpose.
Hidden in that command is the suggestion that we can commune with God and can know God just as we know any other human being. It suggests that we can be in God’s class of being which Christ came to restore us to.
Whatever we do or create that does not serve our need to fellowship, to connect, to Love is not just a waste but has negative consequences. Any enterprise that will last must serve that fundamental human need. We simplify our lives a great deal when we realize that at the very bottom, what everyone craves is fellowship. What God desires, is fellowship. Our purpose is to uniquely and creatively serve the need for fellowship.
