View Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 6:5
6:5 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart - And is this only an external commandment? Can any then say, that the Sinai - covenant was merely external? With all thy heart - With an entire love. He is One; therefore our hearts must be united in his love. And the whole stream of our affections must run toward Him. O that this love of God may be shed abroad in our hearts.

The Lord thy God (Lord of life, God of all created and evolved). God gave us a Heart when we love the Lord God with all our heart, then we are truly alive; for he gave us a heart to love him with all our Soul, Our entire being (all our mind and senses). You know God's entire being; life-love force encompasses the universe, eternity, surely a fragment of our mind, heart and soul is what he gave us to (look at all weíve made for this life on Earth that God gave us). Havenít you done all that you could with all your strength and might. Lord God, let us all by evolvement or your creativeness, LOVE YOU with all the heart and the souls you gave us to live in, and with all our might to care for the Earth that is not ours but Godís. Do you have a mind? Or do you mind knowing that the power of our mind was given to us. Do you know why? Because when your mind is on the LORD THY GOD WHO MADE US ALL IN HIS IMAGE then you shall surely know the meaning of the greatest command ever spoken by his Son. How much does God love you, he gave us to know the meaning of love. His son gave his soul (life for us to his Father), so we could keep ours. The one thing on Yeshua's (God's Son) mind was that he did this from his heart and what did he have in mind when he gave all his strength and might on the torture stake. Next time you hold a child in your arms you may see the answer clearly. For God's Love goes on forever. Are you ready to step into eternity with his Godís son, in the purest words ever spoken. Then Love the Lord thy God with all you heart, for then Yeshua becomes part of your living soul and with all your might and strength you have left. Say Yes Lord God I love you! Why? because Eternity waits for those who can live by this greatest commandment! Have faith in the LORD GOD'S LOVE. YOU KNOW THAT GOD ALWAYS wins. Why? Because he said so, GOD'S LOVE ALWAYS WINS. Thank you Lord for allowing me to type these words.

This scripture is saying to love Jesus with all, give him your all. These are the three parts of you the devil wants mind, soul, might. God is not asking you, he is commanding you to do this. I want your all I want you to love me with all you have in you. In Matthew Jesus said it again, Matthew 22:37-39, Jesus said to love the Lord God with all your heart, with all your soul, all your mind, with everything you have in you.

To love the Lord thy God is a total experience encompassing all of a person; the mental, physical, social and spiritual. We are His children who can only touch him through our souls, consequently, our love must equally encompass with nothing held back. So how do we accomplish such a feat? Only through total love and submission, i.e. giving to Him on all levels of our formative existence. So love Him then love Him some more.
