The second is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” — Mark 12:31
The first Commandment is to love the Lord and the second is just as important. How radiant a love lives in us through Jesus Christ. This radiant love radiates through us to others, our neighbor. God’s love can’t be suppressed if we truly love Him and seek to obey Him. If you love Him you will love His creation – all those who are made in His image. (Genesis 1:17)
Now our challenge is to love His creation, all made in His image, since love does no wrong to a neighbor. (Romans 13:10) The challenge can be accomplished only through Jesus Christ and a solid relationship with Him. We need to seek Him every minute of everyday so that Jesus is the one at work in us. Remember, it is not in our nature to love or to be kind but it is very much the nature of Jesus.
Let Him have dominance in your life. Make Him LORD of your life.
Continually seeking Him,
Genesis 1:17 God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
Romans 13:10 Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
