Love God & Love People

We see in scripture where Jesus tells the leaders of his day, what is the greatest commandment.

Matthew Chapter 22 verses 36 - 40

“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

This verse as Jesus says, sums up all of the biblical laws and all of what the Prophets were trying to tell the the people. Jesus himself loved GOD and out of obedience sought GOD's will in all that he did. We also see that Jesus loved people, as he performed miracles of healing and gave his life so that we could have redemption and forgiveness from our sins.

Granted there are many more things Jesus did in physical form while on this earth and there are more stories and warnings given by the Prophets to the nation of Israel throughout history.

However the point Jesus was making is you only need to Love GOD with all your being and Love those you interact with everyday. It is not very complex, it is rather simple, yet I would agree it is not always so simple for each of us to do. Again we tend to make things more complicated than they need to be, especially when it comes to our relationship with GOD and our relationships with others.

So how do we Love GOD and Love People so that we can fulfill the greatest of all the commandments. We start by:

  • Seeking GOD in everything you do &

  • Treating people the way you would want to be treated.

Stop for a moment and think, what would the world be like if we all did these 2 things. A world where everyone looked to fulfill the will of GOD and looked after the needs of others. If this is the world you would want to live in, then put into practice what Jesus said in Matthew 22, Love God and Love Others. Start today and see what happens.
