What is God’s Holy Word “Love” all about?
It has to do with the “Greatest Commandment” in Matthew 22:34-40 which is all about LOVE.
Jesus says we are to love the Lord with all our hearts AND love our neighbor as ourselves.
Here are the verses >>>
Matthew 22:34-40 – The Scribes: Which Is the First Commandment of All? (NKJV)
34 But when the Pharisees heard that He had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together. 35 Then one of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, and saying, 36 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?”
37 Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”
Can you imagine a world where the people love the Lord with all their heart, AND love their neighbors as they love themselves?
- There would be barely any wars, strife or fighting;
- Plus, we would all live in high-abundance and low stress;
- And… the people would all be very happy and full of joy and love!
This is the way of Peace!
- Loving the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and mind.
- Loving your neighbor as yourself.
If you love Jesus, feed His sheep. Be a “Fisher of Men”.
When Jesus had His ministry on Earth, He showed us His “Way”.
He did things like…
- Breaking bread;
- Feeding people fish;
- Going to the mountain and praying to God;
- Opening the eyes of the blind;
- Healing the lame;
- Jesus’ Name is the “Word of God” (see Revelation 19:13);
- His word is “Truth” (Psalm 119:160, John 17:17); and
- He made everything with His spoken word (Genesis 1, etc.).
God’s will is that all men would be saved and come to the Knowledge of Truth (1st Timothy 2:4).
What is “Truth”? His word is Truth.
The “Word” that the Lord speaks of is not only about reading (and teaching) the whole Bible. Surely we are to do that. The Lord wants us to know what He means when He speaks His Holy Words like: “Bread“, “Oil“, Blood“, “Flesh”, “Mountain“, “Rock”, “Wine”, etc.
He also wants us to get the Holy Spirit IN us, learn and do the Ways of the 7 Spirits listed in Isaiah 11:2, use His lunar/solar calendar, and observe His Holy Days (New Moon, Sabbath, Feast Days, etc.).
How else are we to worship Him in Spirit AND Truth like it says in John 4:24?
Jesus wants us to “Feed His Sheep”. Feed them WHAT? The Knowledge of Truth! We must do this with LOVE, because the “Great Commandment” says we are to love the Lord with all our heart, soul and mind… and love our neighbors as ourselves. 🙂
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
1 John 4:16
And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.
John 14:6 – Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life
6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
