Loving God


The main "command" of Jesus was to love each other. This applied, he made it clear, to not only friends but "enemies" as well.

To "love Jesus" or to "love God" is not simply to do legalistic things (obeying laws) or mechanical things (work) or spouting Scriptures. None of these, lacking Love, will ever serve God. And none, by itself, demonstrates a real Love for God.

The bottom line: The only Way to "love Jesus" is to love other human beings. So, Love must not become an abstract or academic teaching, but must become a real and active part of our day-to-day living.
