Love God and Others
The Greatest commandment is this: LOVE GOD and LOVE OTHERS. Jesus Christ said ALL of the law was summarized in these two commands.
Christ was asked: “Which commandment is the most important of all?” Jesus answered, “The most important is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall 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: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:28-31
After Christ had risen from the dead he questioned his most outspoken apostle.
Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Feed my lambs.” He said to him a second time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Tend my sheep.” He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, “Do you love me?” and he said to him, “Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep.” John 21:15-17
There we have it. We are to love Jesus Christ and serve others in His name.
Loving Jesus Christ includes getting to know Jesus Christ. He can be found through His Word to us, the Bible. You are online. There are many Bibles online.

HERE is a link to a picture Bible for kids.
HERE is a link to The Jesus Film, a 2 hour visual presentation of the Book of Luke. It’s available in over 1000 languages.
If you don’t know the Bible, how can you know Jesus Christ?
Spend time with Him in His Word. Spend time with Him in prayer!
If you want Christ to adopt you into His family, if you want forgiveness of your sins, just ASK HIM! Ask Him NOW. And MEAN IT!
Jesus Christ promised: “For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.” Luke 11:1-13
How will you know if your faith in Jesus Christ is real, if you’ve been ‘born again’, this time into HIS family?
The same way you tell an apple tree from an orange tree. You look at its fruit. Here is a description of the fruit of someone filled with the Spirit of God:
The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Galatians 5:22-24
Our job is to be happily working on ripening our fruit. After all, we are His Ambassadors! Click HERE to find out what THAT means. It’s good!
