Love God & Love One Another MATTHEW 22:35-40
When someone asked Jesus which of the Ten Commandments is the most important, he 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 neighbour the way you love yourself.’ All God’s Law and what the Prophets said hang on these two commandments."
The Royal Law Of Love
Jesus' summary is sometimes called THE ROYAL LAW OF LOVE -
• RULE 1: LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD with all of you (Vertical dimension)
• RULE 2: LOVE OTHERS
the way you would like to be treated (Horizontal dimension)
Jesus' summary of The Ten Commandments in these two rules was designed to show other people we are different by reflecting God’s unconditional love and grace to them. The first rule summarises the first five commandments; the second summarises the last five.
