True Love

J. Fields
Recently I preached a message on the Ten Commandments and their relevance for today,
at the end of the message I read what Jesus had to say in Matthew 22; 36 “Teacher, which is the
most important commandment in the law of Moses?” 37 Jesus replied, “‘You must love
the L ORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ [ e ] 38 This is the first and
greatest commandment. 39 A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as
yourself.’ [ f ] 40 The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two
commandments.” When Jesus speaks, we should never take it lightly especially when He tells us
how important this commandment is.
Every week people are walking into the church that are going through a whole slew of
things, let’s be honest, life can be ruthless. I want to hear people say, wow, I was hurting but
when I walked into the church, I was loved by so many people that my wound was healed.
There’s not one single person who has it all figured out, everyone one of us is a work in
progress. In reality, the church is for the broken, the lonely, the hungry, the poor, the rich, the
joyful, the sick, the sinner, the mature, the healed… This list could go on and on. We all need
Jesus, none of us have arrived yet.
We are called to love God, we do this through surrendering ourselves to Him, by reading
His Word, through prayer, and by just being “real” with Him. The same is true when loving on
people; people just want realness, people who are searching for a relationship with Christ, maybe
they feel “stuck”, or maybe they just want to go deeper in His Word, they want real true
authentic love, this can and must start through us, the believers. Share the Word of Jesus, love on
someone, maybe just smile at someone, or better yet live out Jesus in all you do.
Love God and Love People
Be Blessed,
