Command to Love

Bible Reading: Matthew 22:36-40
Tuesday, October 13, 2015

Command to LoveMany times in the Bible, God commands us to love Him and also to love other people. One time people asked Jesus what the greatest commands were. Jesus answered by quoting verses from the Old Testament.

In our Bible Reading today, Jesus said that the greatest commands are for us to love God and to love other people. Jesus said in verse 40 that ALL the laws in the Bible come from these two commands. Romans 13:8-10 tells us that if we truly want to obey God, we must love others.

In the book of John, Jesus commanded His followers to love each other. He said that we must do this so we can follow Him. Jesus also said that people will know we follow Jesus by the way we love God and others (John 13:35).

Chapters 3 and 4 of 1 John explain that if we want to follow Jesus, we must love God and others. If we truly belong to Jesus, we will obey His command to love. — MK

“This is what God commands: that we believe in his Son Jesus Christ, and that we love each other as he commanded.” 1 John 3:23

PRAYER: Father, I want to love and obey You and show love to other people. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
