Love – The Greatest Command

Posted on

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.

Mark 12:30-31

Jesus came to earth to show us how to live so Heaven will be our home, and his divine love for the Father and for us, gave Him the strength to endure flogging and death on the cross for our sins.

Let all that you do be done in love. (1 Corinthians 16:14) Love is the greatest motivation to bring people to Christ, because with a heart of love for lost souls. Christians love everyone on the planet including our enemies, because everyone is created in the image of God.

The Father fills our heart with agape love, as we go into the world and tell people about Christ. Jesus’s loves everyone, and brought the truth to everyone. Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing. (Luke 13:34) Jesus shows a heart of love, and how He desires that everyone be saved.

No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. (1 John 4:12) We love one another, then God makes his love in our hearts complete, and the more love we have in our hearts the more Christ-like we become.

Today show patience and kindness to everyone, with a heart that cares about others, and help others if the opportunity arises.

Prayer: Lord, help me to reflect Christ with loving and caring heart. In Jesus name, Amen
