Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Luke 10:27


10:27 Thou shalt love the Lord thy God - That is, thou shalt unite all the faculties of thy soul to render him the most intelligent and sincere, the most affectionate and resolute service. We may safely rest in this general sense of these important words, if we are not able to fix the particular meaning of every single word. If we desire to do this, perhaps the heart, which is a general expression, may be explained by the three following, With all thy soul, with the warmest affection, with all thy strength, the most vigorous efforts of thy will, and with all thy mind or understanding, in the most wise and reasonable manner thou canst; thy understanding guiding thy will and affections. #De 6:5|; Lev 19:18.

    The summary of Luke 10 ,is making heaven.
  • Tonguino Alexis for verse 42
    "There is only one thing needed"...This was Jesus' response to Martha.That one thing needed is saving one's soul,in other words Salvation.Also,continually feeding the soul with its desired food,which is the word...The word of God. Now,why didn't Mary join Martha for the preparations? It's clear in verse 39,which says "Her sister,Mary,sat at the Lord's feet,listening to what He taught.This tells us that,Mary was more concerned about saving her soul and knowing the word of God,rather than running after worldly pleasures to satisfy the flesh,which stands for the preparations the bible talks about.Beloved,I encourage you to embrace the freely given salvation the Lord has brought to us.
