LOVE GOD LOVE OTHERS
At the heart of being a disciple of Jesus is loving well. This requires us experiencing connection with God, with others and with ourselves. In the life of Christ, we see someone who practiced loving God and loving others unlike anyone else. Jesus was asked by a religious lead, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?” (Matthew 22:36) Jesus summarized the entire Bible for us,
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.
Begin exploring who he is
through his Word the Bible.
