The Greatest Commandment.
What did Jesus say was the greatest commandment?
"'"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind."'" Matthew 22:37 (NRSV)
"'And a second is like it: "You shall love your neighbor as yourself." On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.'" Matthew 22:39,40 (NRSV)
So the heart of Jesus' teaching is Love.
Not morality, not obedience, not good works, not repentance, not purity, not sacrifice, not fear.....
If you follow these two commandments you will find God.
