What are we, as Christians, to do? To love God and love others – it is as simple as that! Well, maybe that isn’t that simple to do? We often love our ways over God’s ways. We may often think that others are unlovable. I guess loving God and loving others is easier said than done! May we learn to love God and others more authentically and more fully. May we see the image of God in everyone. May we allow His image to be seen more clearly in and through us. May we encourage others to allow His image to be expressed in and through each of them too. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, in the name of Christ, and for God’s glory, I pray. Amen.
Verses: Matthew 22:36-40 (NIV)
“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
Jesus replied: “‘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.”
