I talk and write about this all the time, but have you really stopped to think about it? God’s GREATEST commands are to love Him with all our hearts and to love others as ourselves. Plain and simple. Clear as day.
If we are loving the Lord but not loving people, are we in total obedience to Jesus? NO! If we’re loving people and not loving the Lord with all our hearts, are we in total obedience to Jesus? NO!
Total obedience? When we love the Lord with all our hearts AND love others as ourselves.
Where do you stand with both of these, friend? Let’s obey Him in all things – beginning with faith in Him and LOVE. Hallelujah! Amen!
“Jesus answered him, “The first of all the commandments is: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment. And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”” Mark 12:29-31
