What It All Comes Down To…

Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. – Matthew 22:37-39

Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning. -1 John 2:7 Throughout God’s Word the message is the same. It all comes back to love. God’s love for people and His desire for all to be saved. His command to love Him first above all things and also to love our neighbors as ourselves. This is nothing new and yet a message that bears constant repeating as it seems to be easily forgotten. Can we think of recent times when we failed to obey this commandment to love people as we ought to? For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. -1 John 3:11
