Love God, Love Others

(Back to Content)

When Jesus was asked what the greatest commandment was this is how He responded.

Mark 12:30,31 “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: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’  There is no commandment greater than these.”

The commandments that had been a guide for God’s people for 1,000’s of years Jesus summed up with this powerful charge. We will dive into what Jesus was saying and how it impacts our lives today. This charge to love God and Love others is simple, yet life changing.
