The Two Great Commands

Posted by Pastor Frank Humphrey on

The Lord Jesus Christ said that the law and the prophets gave two great

commands: you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and

mind; and you shall love your neighbour as yourself. (Matthew 22:37-40)


These commandments reveal the reason God created us: to love him and to love

our fellow human beings, especially those in need; both those in need of

Christ and those in need of physical or material assistance.


Sin is failure to keep these commandments. And since we fail miserably when

it comes to loving God and our neighbours we become separated from God. Only

the Lord Jesus Christ can restore us to God, having paid the penalty for our

sin, since he is God and man.


Understanding this, Charles Wesley wrote- Amazing love! How can it be, that

thou my God shouldst die for me!
