Hear, O Israel!

Return to me with your whole heart.

Joel 2:12

The prophet Joel highlights our relationship with God as the center of our biblical faith and emphasizes that we are to invest “with our whole heart.” This devotion is known as Shema which appears in Deuteronomy 6:4-5. Following Moses’s reinstatement of the ten commandments, God, through Moses, tells the people “Hear (Shema), O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord alone! Therefore, you shall love the Lord, your God, with your whole heart, and with your whole being, and with your whole strength. 

Joel invites us to renew our love for God- a thoughtful and intentional love of God with our whole being. We act in this way because God first extends gracious, merciful, and steadfast love to us. 

Blow the trumpet in Zion!
