“For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.””
- As a Christian, there is no excuse for a lack of love for the people that are put in your path. If we love God with everything we have, and we love others as much as we love ourselves, obedience to God’s commands will happen! May we focus on love, and not the law, for obedience to the entire law will follow love, but love will not automatically follow the law! May our faith and our actions be based on our love for God, and the love He showed to us by sending His Son, Jesus Christ.
Matthew 22:36-40 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”
