Love God and Neighbor

Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Matthew 22:37-40

When Jesus was asked what the greatest commandment of the law is, this was his reply. Jesus summed up the Bible and Gods plan for us in a few short sentences. As Jesus said if you follow these commands you will inherit eternal life. (Matthew 19:17)

First Love God will all your heart, in order to truly love God we must be obedient to God. As Jesus said if you truly love him you will keep his commandments (John 14:15) Remember Fear of The Lord is the beginning of wisdom and understanding.(Proverbs 9:10) If you have no respect for God, how can you truly love him? Just as Children need to respect their parents, we need to respect our Heavenly Father and his will for our life.

Second once we understand how God loved us even though we were still sinners (Romans 5:8) we need to learn to love our neighbors just as God loved us. For the entire law is fulfilled by keeping this command “Love your neighbor as yourself” (Galatians 5:14) As Jesus said “Do unto others as you would want done unto you (Matthew 7:12)

Many try to overcomplicate Christianity or confuse people with there doctrine, but as Jesus said remember these simple commandments and you have fulfilled the law. Accept Christ as your Lord and Savior , and follow the Truth , Life, and Way in Jesus Name Amen
