Sistren and Brethren:
And thou shalt Love The Lord thy God with all your heart, and with all your being, and with all your mind, and with all your strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, You shalt Love your neighbour as yourself (kinda hard, no? You are striving to be happy for yourself for happiness, satisfaction, goals and dreams. Your neighbor?Yes! Believe it or not! The Word says this, none other!)
There is no other commandment greater than these. Do we live by The Word? https://becomingchristians.com/2017/08/08/5-effective-ways-on-how-you-can-live-according-to-every-word-of-god/
Jesus replaced the multitude of Laws and commandments we’d received in the beginning with the two mentioned in the verse. But if you pay attention closely, you will realize all the commandments are summed up in these two commandments. The Christian life is about Loving God in our actions, our thoughts, and our words (our ALL!.) It is also about treating every person we encounter with love, free of prejudice and resentment.
And we pray:
Dear God, I ask that You help me abide by the commandments, applying Your Word in my life so that my Love for You will be evident to everyone around me, in truth and sincerity. I also ask that You help me love every person around me, Lord. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
