On God and Black letters – #1 Love God

Deuteronomy 6:4-9 Knowing and loving God means struggling with the reality of a God who truly loves us, but also calls us to live for him and this means the black letters of the Bible are just as important to us, challenging as they may be, as the wonderful red letters of Jesus’ teaching.
