Daily In The Word – Feb. 4th

Date: 9 Feb 2018 Comments: 0

Okay, I told you I would be playing ‘catch up’ on my readings. Here are my thoughts from yesterday’s reading. When someone says that they are a Christian, this comes with many expectations, not just expectations from God but from other Christians as well. We are all accountable to each other to show that our lives our changed. But what does that look like? I think Jesus’ words when asked about the most important commandment clear that up: “Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” (Matthew 22:37-39, NLT). If we truly love God with all our heart and we also love our neighbor as ourselves, the rest of God’s commandments (not murdering, not being lustful, etc.) flow rather naturally. But we may spend our whole lives trying to fully handle these two commands.
