“Love God, Love Others”

One of the Pharisees, a lawyer, asked Jesus, “Which is the great commandment in the Law?” Jesus’ answer came from Deuteronomy 6:4-5. It can be summed up like this: “Love God with everything you are in every way possible.” Then Jesus gave the next greatest commandment, “Love others in the same way you love yourself.”
Jesus said to him, “You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.” This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matthew 22:37-39)
And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. (Colossians 3:14)A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity. (Proverbs 17:17)Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. (John 15:13)
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. (1 John 3:16)
